Ditto to Ice nyne's.

Sounds great there. I have it's 6.5" cousin in the stock location on some 3/4" MDF. The crossover is on the MDF with it.

I wouldn't mount tweeters in either location...

The high mount is too close to your head, it kills the staging; too low, and your pants legs/carpet absorbs the highs.

The lower end of the a pillar sounds much better. You really want them at arm's length, ideally; and a way to fade them to match volume at your head.

My Alpine has the ability to change the timing of the signals to the speaker (time domain correction), and it makes a major difference.

Put them wherever they sound good to you, but that's my $0.02...

My brilliancy when it comes to computers prevents me from posting my tweets, but they are on the upper A-pillar, I have been thinking about adding another set behind the seat wear the hook is to hang hangers...Has anyone installed a set there?

I agree with installing low on the door panel, I could not install them low on the A-pillar because I have the triple gauge pod. Wish I could set you guys up with a pic.

I think all those locations are nice. But the part most of are missing is the fact that when you move the tweeters away form the midrnge speaker they start to sound like 2 speakers not one. That isn't good for staging. To make them sound the best you want both of the units to sound like one. The farther you move the tweeters away form the mid the lower the crossover point of the tweeter. So I would think if you really wnat good sound to keep the tweeters close to the mid's. I think you should be able to get real nice sound with a set of 6 1/2"s or 5 1/4" 's in the door and the tweeters located inside the door next to the mid. If anything then the tweeters are hidden from view and you can test the sound before you put the door panels back on. That way you can adjust the tweeters for the best staging.

yeah I know after the fact of mounting mine that I mounted them too high, it doesnt sound bad but Im sure if I mounted them within the suggested 6inch range it would sound even better. I need to find some new pillar plastic (from the door to the mid ceiling plastic that goes up the pillar) and then remount my tweeter there.

i have 5.25 components in kick panels on the floor in the corners[obviously] sounds like the sound is up high. IMHO that is the only place to get proper imaging as the distance is almost equal.
