Umm, that's not part of the modification

Seriously, installing mid/tweet in the a-pillar isn't a bad idea. Well, at least for 1 seat car.
Here's my car FR:



Center is right at the middle of dash. Both speakers blend nicely into the stage. Some people thought those aren't producing any sound

I'll do another setting tomorrow... hopefully there will be an improvement

Do airbags have to be removed from the A pillar if they are present? I have always liked that type of setup but was unsure about the safety if it. Thx

Aight, but don't get underwhelmed with how they look on the outside...

Two of the driver's side during building and one of the passenger's side finished.

As you can see...they are completely stealth and the car looks factory from the inside.

Heres my recent install, still under construction.

I decided to not go with a pillar install because I like this look though the soundstage may be a little narrower than if I did a pillar install I like it though.

That is nice, I got the hsk 165 xl running right now. I'm trying to add a HL 70 too. Your set up is exactly what i'm trying to do.

Whispers. I followed the "Whispers in my pillar" thread and did what Jeff was talking about. They cross to a tweeter in the factory locations in the sail panel.

I dunno if I have any pictures of the speakers prior to installation, but there are some on the Madisound site and Linkwitz's site.

Car is a 2001 Lexus IS300.

Minibox's pillars are fantastic - aesthetically pleasing and musically pleasing.

Winslow's whispers sounded incredible as well - completely stealth.

Pusko - I had saved down pictures from your build log - fantastic craftsmanship - attention to detail.

I'm interested in seeing additional install locations at the base of the pillars - may go this route in the future.

If I had a big set of er, you know...I would have done something larger in the corners of the dash facing up. But I couldn't make them look factory like I did the Whispers. And the last thing I want is someone walking past the car and seeing some speakers, then deciding they wanted whatever was in the car more than I did.
