I'm going to re-run my wiring in a few weeks. And I'll give my review of the system, too.

Hi Radar,
Just curious about the mounting of your LF drivers... In previous installs you've mounted directly to the door and not the card. Did you mount to the card here only because of the depth of the driver, or was there other reasoning? Are you planning something to seal the driver to your existing hole in the door, or how do you plan to finish this off?

Hey Scott,

No, I've never mounted to the door, only the card.

I don't think I'll be sealing it to the door; the air space is shared in many places, so it would be a fruitless attempt.

I mounted to the card because of the speaker depth...the vert is a real b*tch!

It's finished, except the door card won't seal against the door yet. I need to replace a door bolt with something shallower, or flip it over. Not sure yet what's going to work. It's the one at the bottom of my cutouts...it just barely hits the magnet.

Just haven't had the time.

Simply removed the rubber magnet cover and the door panel/card fits fine again.

System sounds awesome, waaaaay more mid-bass than the CDT set. Blows on my left pants leg as I'm driving down the road!

Have you cut a hole in the door to allow the speaker to vent? Or is it all fitting in front of the sheetmetal?

After having to dremel the card to install a much shallower driver, hats off for getting that tank to fit!

Is there really a difference between the coupe and the convertible? I was hoping to use this method to mount my Boston Pro's to the doors.

No I believe there is no difference.

If there is any difference at all, maybe there's some extra bracing in the door of the vert. But that is totally a guess, and I think they are the same.

That link is a sedan, and those doors are different. There's a brace in the door of the coupe and convertible for the window I believe that you have to avoid cutting.

I hear the Pro 60s have killer midbass! Let us know how they sound.
