I might give those a shot at some point, but right now I'm going with the standard threaded tube approach. The plastidip is drying now, so will probably finish install tomorrow.

I believe lowes sells the smooth ones.
Check the outdoor underground plastic piping for lawn sprinklers. They have them in black.

UPDATE:

went to Lowes they carry the same kind/brand. No luck there, going to try a local plumbing store nearby see if I have luck there. If anyone knows where to buy these with smooth finish lmk. Other wise its sanding and priming for these babies

Thanks! Great idea and implementation! I'm gonna think about this. Wonder if I could get a ball joint on that mounting post to allow better flexibility of the aiming of the tweeters.

OMG look what I found by Googling "threaded lamp swivel mounts":

Lamp Parts, Lighting Parts, Lamp Glass and Chandelier parts - Grand Brass Lamp Parts and Lighting Parts Super Store

More too, this was just one search hit!

Problem is, threading the mounting post into thin sheet metal is not a very good mount. I wonder if they make RivNuts that large threaded tube size? RivNuts are awesome, I installed 6-32 Rivnuts to mount most of my speakers and I got some stainless steel 6-32 machine screws and washers to mount my speakers. RivNuts are great because then you can have a good machine threaded mount. Much more durable than sheet metal screws. You can take them out and replace them many many times, easily!

I know this thread is somewhat dead, but can anyone tell me how yall held the tweeter onto the pvc cap? I get everything except for how to tweeter is actually held in place. I'm thinking its where you said to wrap it in electrical tape until the tweeter will slide in there but also be thick enough where you can to forcefully push it in there. Definately going to do this for my truck.

Thanks

It really depends on the tweeter being used...

I have created pods for Morel Supremo's that had bolt holes on the frame. My current pods house AudioFrog GB10's that have a treaded hole on the back of the tweeter casing itself...a just drilled a hole in the back of the pod, got the appropriate screw from Home Depot and secured it. If you don't have 'factory' type mounting options then it's time to get creative.

Yes or a little silicone, silicone will peel off later if you do something else.

So you're just putting a little silicone around the lip of the PVC for the tweeter to adhese to? Something like:

Yup and just put a little on and put them in place I only used a dab in about four places and stuck them in and they have held fine and I have 153 db sub stage. Try not to use enough that it squeezes out or make sure you get it wiped off quick.
