Upon further examination, doesn't seem to affect anything to have it offcenter. I didn't have the bandpass tight enough, from 40-200these things put out some bass for their size. I can't make em fit though, which sucks.
I had one installed (sort of) and the other was just playing in the trunk, which wasn't a good thing. In an attempt to determine the cause of the distortion I looked at the physical properties and noticed how far off the surround was. I played them both in the same environment and it appears all is well, but I still couldn't make them fit the way I'd like without serious adjustments to the car, so they're out. Guess it just wasn't meant to be.
