Hi.
I'm about to start putting some Whispers in my a-pillars.

I'm not competing, so I don't need something to physically protect them, but I want something to reduce their visibility to the thieving scum!

I've seen Justin Zazzi's pillars (I have the same mkiv Golf) and want to do something similar, but as I don't need the metal grill, could I speed things up by sliding a tube over the end of the Whispers that extends enough to clear xmax, then covering with acoustic cloth?

I know there is a risk of diffraction, I also have read the a round over would help prevent that diffraction, but the articles I've read about that suggest a big round over for the frequencies we're talking about (probably down to around 1k, maybe a little lower if testing shows the Whispers can keep up with my midbass)

So do I bother with a round over at all, or just try it with the tube?

Thanks in advance

I'm hoping to make a start on these tomorrow or Sunday, so any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

If the round over is pointless, am I best to have the tube as close to the surround of the Whisper as possible or as big a diameter as possible?

Also, I seem to remember someone talking about surrounding (or partially surrounding) a-pillar mids with something similar to avoid reflection off the windscreen?

As I said, hoping to start soon, assuming the weather doesn't get in the way, or my wife accidentally pulls down another light fitting during housework!
