Ok; now I have to figure out where to put these new Boston RC520 component speakers. (Y'all'll still help me, after buying Boston, right?....lol......) After listening to these for two days, I've come to some conclusions.
1) Man, they're bright!!!!!
2) Man, they have no bass!!!!!
3) Man, mid-frequencies are very directional!!!!
So, number one I can live with. Number two is to be expected given they're 5.25" components; I'll just hafta get a sub a lot sooner than I thought I would.....bummer. Number three.... Well, I don't think I can solve this problem in this vehicle; at least not for my first instal. I may pull 'em out and maybe make some kick-panels so I can aim them later on.
Now, the main problem is tweeter placement. I have the surface mount kit, which I don't really want to use because it'll stick out too much. I also have the flush mount kit, which I'm leaning toward. I also have an angle mounting kit (since they don't swivel ).
Now for reasoning. Why use surface mount when I can flush mount?! So that leaves me with flush vs. anlge. (I'll attach pictures in following posts, so refer to them while reading.) The flush mount will probably work just fine and will definitely look the best. However, they will be pointing straight at the opposite doors instead of at me. The angle mounting kit would be the best choice since it'll angle the tweeters at my head. However, it adds a lot of size to the tweeter, which makes it look worse and a lot more susceptible to gettig knocked off. (Also, I don't understand exactly how I'd mount the angle kit...)
So, look at the pics and tell me what you think I might should do for tweeter placement.
