So yesterday after I got off work, I went home and installed the rear door tweeters in my non-premium sound setup. I skipped taking pics since the how-to thread has plenty. It didn't take too long at all, maybe an hour, and I've never taken any door panels off in my life. I must say, it sounds SO much better with the fade set to +2 rear to balance the sound out. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If anyone is thinking about doing this, my words of advice are geared towards removing the clips around the sides and bottom of the door panel. I used a microfiber cloth over a flat head screwdriver to prevent scratching to initially loosen the clips slightly, and then wedged the clips off by getting the screwdriver between the rubber ring and the door (sans microfiber). Rotate the screwdriver side to side to loosen the clip from the door and it'll pop right out. To make putting the door back on as easy as possible, slide all clips back into their holds in the inside of the door panel first, then line up the door lock peg with the top against the window edge. At this point, slide the window control clip through the hole where the handle is and try to rest it against the edges so it doesn't slide back under the door panel. After that, push the top edge straight on the clips, and finally work your way around the door panel with sharp blows with the side of your fist directly over each side and bottom clip individually. Hopefully this will make things easy for whoever does this in the future. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emcocktl.gif" BORDER="0">

When i got my Daily Driver Jeep the upgraded Boston Acoustics system was so disappointing. My first mod to the car was Dynaudio 3 way Esotec components up front with an Audison Amp. I just took the rear speakers out as i felt rear fill was un-necessary. Sounds killer now! Dynaudio FTW.

Re: (ForceFed Motorsports)

I think I blew my front tweeters... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> They make some crackling noise if I try to turn it up to my normal volume. <br>How much did you pay for your Dynaudio volvo tweeters? Where?
