Mt attempt at SQ

Hi all,

Been a while since I posted. I have done lots to the my car in the past 2yrs. I still own my Monte. Been busy and what not.

With the recent changes in the DBDrag and me losing interest and my wallet losing money I decided to give up trying to get more SPL and go aim for SQ. I don't work in a audio shop or a body shop. I do this as a hobby. I decided to add a few things to the front stage. The first thing is my A-pillars. I added Dayton Audio 4" mids to the the stage.









and done and installed:





Now I am working on my front doors:

Bought a used set from a junk yard....









They are currently all sanded and filled twice. Now to resolve the speakers depth issue I have and then it will be e a final tweaking to the speaker rings and smooth it all and then it goes paint.........fun stuff.

Thats an amazing amount of work and looks great.
How does it sound?
Nice car too. I stuck with the stock location in my Monte, just modified/fixed the plastic mounts, but had to modify window bracket to get a little more depth.
