Maybe try to find a pair of pillars at a junk yard. That way you can safely store the originals and go nuts on the replacement ones.
Oh yeah I know that feeling, that's why I called to check how much replacements cost for mine. :wink:demon2091tb said:Good idea, I hope there not too much, Then i'd be able to hack them up as much as i'd like, I just really want to have a replacement set, in case something went wrong, ya know that feeling.
Just a quick one... why do you think that aiming will make a good job of your tweeters freq response and staging? It’s honestly the last place I’d put a tweeter aiming wise, I would always aim down the length of the car more than across as reflections from the drivers side glass will ruin the stage in every car I’ve ever setup for sq... then adjust them back onwards a bit at a time until the stage collapses somewhat and move them back outThat is actually really close to what i was thinking, but higher on the A-pillar, Basically ear level, firing at each other but just a few degrees in towards the windshield. The tweeters i have are LPG 26na with a fairly shallow mounting depth, so i really could get away with something about 1/2" away from the panel if i worked hard enough.
if you have an lkq auto near you,youll probably find some panels from themWell the car is a Scion tC, in a way i doubt the finding of A-pillar panels in junkyards around here, theres not many at all on the road, and probobly less in a junk yard.
super old thread you bumped but if you’re looking at the ones on eBay I would suggest you look at some of the threads on here. Some not happy customers of the aluminum pods.I’m looking for some pre-fab pods that will mount to my A pillars for tweets and mids. I see some aluminum ones online but was wondering if there’s anyone out there that makes them. Thanks
Yes. Most pillars are cheap to replace.I would call the dealer and see how much a replacement set of a-pillars would cost. If they're not to pricey go to town on the one's you have now. I know for my car (2k4 maxima) the pillars are only $27 a pop.
I didn’t even notice 🙈 thread from the decayed and deceased... never mind dead...This is why you don't necro a 15 year old thread. No one even responds to you and just responds to posts from 2005.
