Hi all,

just wanted to share what i did last weekend. I have Hertz HT 28 (1.1"/ 28mm) tweeter and i was originally putting it on original tweeter location. Reading from Audiofrog article about beaming, I am determined to get tweeter on axis. I was looking at pillar A option pods and the best that i could find was the one from Germany on ebay for $75+ $20 shipping + tax and long delivery time.

Well, doing DIY and saving money are always my goal, so i was looking at Amazon and find below item. Its rear motorcycle turn signal. the opening is 50mm and my tweeter is at 48mm which is perfect sizing. I just put electrical tape around my tweeter and it fits perfectly.

anyway, I drilled another hole to mount the pod at an angle since its fixed, i could use adjustable ball mount bracket but i think i am not moving this around so i just drill new hole.

the screw to hold the pods is hollow, so i am able to get cable to get through cleanly.

Next i drilled hole on my door panel and voila. its done.:) I think it looks pretty nice even though the back of the pods looks like an egg ;)

what do you guys think? not bad for $12 + tax and 1 day shipping

Looks perfectly pro to me ! Good job. Not always easy to source something like that. The hollow bolt is key as well.

thank you. yeah, hollow bolt was a must to make it as clean as possible. next is to find what fits HL70 3" midrange.

Damn, this changes everything. I’ve been combing over Crutchfield trying to find out what tweeters most closely match my car and wondering how much fabrication I need to do. Totally inexperienced at that. Those look great and it seems like such a simple solution.

Got a link to that article you mentioned?

here's the article.

in summary, since my tweeter will carry 4K-20+ Khz, I will have narrow sound dispersion at higher frequency which made it crucial to have tweeter "on axis" instead of against windshield.
