I dropped the Morel mids into the dash and they look like they were made for that location! Also, the supplied Morel tweeter mounts are surprisingly perfect to simply mount to the factory grille! Sorry guys, no exciting custom work on the tweets and mids, this was too easy! Lol

Here is the MW6 (almost) in the Metra pod... It is much closer to fitting than I thought it would be. I'll make a baffle for the speaker and trim the opening a little, and that should do it. It's very plasticy though, so I think I'll line the inside with something, but I am not sure with what yet. The outside will get a full cld wrap...

you lucked out, so no extra templates lol.... well once it warms up here i will be doing custom dash pods...keep going bud.
Lol! Not yet!

I am going to see about making these pods bigger... One of their sides has to have a little room to add on to, and I'll put the aperiodic vent at the end of the add-on. Or maybe I'll test them like this, because my JK (after venting) sounded really good and I think the pods are about the same size as these ones, IIRC.

That is a pretty good idea to make it stiffer... I could even give it a layer of fiberglass wrap.

For those of you who buy my used gear, here is one of the things I do to protect stuff while fabricating and installing... Amps are wrapped in a couple layers of shrink wrap and then taped along the edges. On top of that I am really careful, as one little slip or a dropped tool can really do some ugly damage (as we all know).

I got the power and ground wire done... A first for me, I ran the power outside the vehicle with it tethered to the frame with a combination of wire clamps and zip ties were appropriate.
