Got some free time to update this thread.
So these are what the pillars looked like after 3 layers of 1.5 oz mat and sanded with 40 grit paper on a DA.

Then I added a layer of Rage Extreme. Very nice to work with and super easy to sand.

Then I painted a few coats of SEM texture paint.

And here they are in the truck. I'm not sure what I want to do with them next so for now they are staying where and how they are.


You can kinda see how far they project out toward the middle.

So....first impressions....AWESOME! I only have the three-way Hertz front stage in and minimal rear fill. I still need to finish the sub box, paint it, and install the woofers. But with the volume about half way up the truck pounds hard. I am going to back off the input to the mid woofers on the cross-overs once I get the sub woofers in. For now everything is flat and I still need to get off my butt and tune the amplifier. Also with all the deadening I put in, there are still some rattles to chase down with the volume up. For anyone doing these Chevy/GMC's you need to put some silicone around the switch/control plates in the doors! With the midrange and tweeters facing each other I can't tell with one side dominating the other with everything balanced. I wish I lived close to someone who could sit in it and tell me how to improve it but to me it sounds incredible and I am totally happy with it. Once the sub woofers are in I think it will be plenty for me. I'm into quality rather than loudness so I think this system will fit the bill nicely.

I need some help guys. Some asshole decided to help themselves to my stereo and the hertz 6.5 and the rear 6.5 and my amps. So I need a replacement 6.5 Woofer for the hertz 163 components and an 8” suggestion for the rear components. Needing 4ohm to go with the existing crossovers. And I need amp recommendations to power the two front components and the two rear components. I believe the rms of the hertz components is 150 and the rear the same.
