  1. Dash mounted mids. What would cause this response?

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    Hi guys, im still chugging along with my Toyota 86 build and its sounding pretty great so far, but im curious about my dash corner mounted GB25s response. They are upfiring in the corner of the dash in the factory position with a 1/4in acrylic baffle between 300hz and 3000hz. The part i find...
  2. Mid Range / Highs MUST be placed as near to A-Pillar-Dash as possible?

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    I'm pretty sure place the mids/highs at dash height and on-axis as possible is always a good idea when looking for a nice frontstage stereo image. But... Placing that freqs at kicks will really screw the frontstage? I've been planning a simple SQ system for a while, and up to now, I think to...

  5. A pillar VS. Dash board mounting

    General Car Audio Discussion
    Simple question- Can some of you SQ guru's who have tried it all tell me how mounting tweeters ( and maybe mids too) in A pillars would sound different then mounting the same said speakers in the dashboard facing up and reflecting off the glass? I'm looking to understand how the soundstage...
  6. New Mini, speakers in dash corners?

    Technical & Advanced Car Audio Discussion
    The first time I got in my 2008 Cooper, I ignored the huge speedometer in the center and stared at the round adjustable vents in the ends of the dash. My immediate thought was "B&W 801's".. I pictured yanking the vent housing, and building replacements that would hold a 4" or 5" mid where the...
