I also added speaker rings to seal the driver's to the door panel and Speaker Tweaker Set (Anechoic Pads) behind the mid/woofer.

Looking good, any subs? These are some of the natural sounding speakers to my hearing.
No sub currently. I'm not a bass head and the 650 is sufficient for my tastes. I've run a sweep with room eq wizard previously to see what my measurements are.

It is not about bass. E650s are very fine mid-bass, very detail but cannot go that low. I am crossing mine at 80HZ but I feel they struggle going lower and they are dedicated midbass in my set up. But if they work out in your case then that is awesome.

Is that MLV lining the outer door skin in the 3rd photo?

I've been slowly working on finishing everything up on the driver's side. Covered both inner doors in CLD tiles with MLV on top. Strategically placed CCF to prevent vibration. I tried to cover the whole inner door from the window seal to the drains. I put in some dispersion pads and added fasst rings on the driver's.

I also tore the whole back of the car interior out. I'll have to take more pictures. I coated the whole rear of the car behind the front seats in CLD, MLV, and multiple layers of melamine foam. I also have to install 3m thinsulate 600L in the car.

Trying to cover up all the seams and holes in the inner door skin. The seal design uses the inner door trim for the second seal. Might try a mlv ring on the inner side of the trim to get rid of air gaps.

My first attempt at deadening was tracing the inner door skin on MLV. Needless to say it didn't fit and I messed up my cuts. Gave up and used it as a vaper barrier. I'll shove in either melamine foam or 3m thinsulate 600L in the panel.
