custom door pods

Post by daveyg » Wed Apr 07, 2010 11:49 am

In the near future i am planning on installing some component speakers of the 13cm variety. Tweeters will either be in the A pillar or if i get the guts to do a corrado dash conversion, in the existing speaker grilles on the dash, however does anyone know of where i could purchase door pods that would accomodate the main woofer or if the existing door pods can be manipulated to fit?

Any advice welcome

Thanks

There are custom pods floating about but they are rare. I ended up doing them myself. Take a look at my build thread and if it's what you're looking for I'll forward a load of info

Wow, that looks like you went to a lot of effort on those, do you get vibration/flapping with the speakers being behind the carpet. Very interested in seeing more about this!

Thanks

Nope. The Cloth I use is the utter borricks. It's starting to sag a bit but that's because I haven't strengthened them, something I'll do after the weekend. Component speakers are the way forward.
I'll be at Pod this weekend if you want to take a look
