A first time poster on this forum and I need advice or suggestions.
My system is installed in a 2008 F-150 Pickup. The speakers consist
of 2 sets of DB571 5"x7" coaxials mounted in the stock locations in
the front and rear doors and a DB 1040 sub in a sealed cabinet in the
middle of the rear of the cab. The main problem I'm having is with the
imaging or soundstage. It seems that I'm "looking down" on the music.
Any suggestions on how to pull the image "up" towards the windshield
so it will be more "out front". I've considered several things to try.
1. Would removing the tweeters from the coaxials and mounting them
on or in the dash help ? I know you probably think I'm nuts for even
suggesting this but I have done crazier things. Also if I did do this
would I get better results mounting the tweeters flat in the dash and
bouncing them off the windshield or something like on the pillars
and aiming them more directly.
2. Adding a set of tweeters (db1001?) and mounting them in one of the
3. Switching to components and mounting the tweeters as above.
Just looking for ideas / suggestions before I get too far in this.
Thanks in advance.
