Ok so to get to the point, I made a 1/4 cu. ft. sealed "portable" small L4" enclosure to test different locations in the car. I tested tons of locations and two that stood out are:

1) On-Axis: (right speaker at the right ear, left speaker pointing at the left ear)
2) Window: Both speakers pointing into the middle of the windshield (so middle and center)

Results:
On-Axis: Great width; all the way to the side mirrors. Depth around dash level where steering wheel is
Window: Great depth, almost to headlights but narrower width (to a-pillar compared to side mirrors)


My idea:
L4 (mid-range) pointing at the window with it's good depth
L1V2 (tweet) pointing at the ears on-axis for it's width

Overlapping frequencies so the mid-range goes to 6.3 and tweets go as low as 3.5 so between 3.5 and 6.3 there's overlap. Alternatively, tweets lower down with no overlap but a much smaller drop off slope.

Any opinions or ideas as to what I can do? (this is for competition so it's not for my personal preference)

Hi
I would go with the second option and crossover high so the tweets come in around somewhere in the 5 - 8k region.

;)

Anyone else have any experience pointing the speakers at the windshield?
