Custom Tweeter Location

Car: 2007 v6, EX-L Accord Coupe
I hate where the tweeters are right now, which is here


I want to put them here, like this



Only problem is, the mirror/door panel piece has the main clip right in the center of it (Classic genius honda) and I don't know if you guys know of a way to put the tweeters there.

I'm wondering if maybe the 2009 Accord's door panel would fit somehow, with some small modifications? Any suggestions?

Just out of curiosity, what don't you like about the stock location?

I wanted to do the same thing as you but there is really no way to fit it in that panel with the clip right in the middle. Here is what I ended up doing.

Did you have to remove the center clip? If so, how do you get it to stay connected to the door?

Is the tweeter just glued on or something?

2 screws holding it in its bracket. Mine came with an angle housing and an option to mount it on the door like you.

Did you just use a hole saw to cut the panel? and as far as wiring, did you just wire it to the kick panel speakers with a low pass cross over?

Yeah that is what I used. It made a really clean hole.



Check out the thread below to see how I wired the tweeters. It is towards the end. I ran speaker wire through the door to the crossover hidden under the carpet in the passenger side footwell.

Funny. I'm looking at buying the exact same component speakers and 6x9's by focal for my coupe. How do you like them? How is the frequency response for EDM? Thanks for the tips.

IIRC it was $600ish. Half up front to cover materials and half after install. He had my car 3 days I think.
