Actually, not a bad idea to build a few at once if anyone else is interested in purchasing.

I am going to buy a set of the new VDP wedges that mount on the roll bar and wheel well area. I had been putting them off because I was not a big fan of the old design. I felt they were just too bulky..

However, the new ones look much nicer and now that I have ditched my sound bar, I am going to give these a chance. With luck, the set of nice Boston Acoustic 6x9's I have might fit in with the original speaker grills.

The new style are the ones in the bottom photo. I plan on getting them in spice to match the interior. I hope they work a bit better for folding the seat back with the slimmer profile.

I actually do have that wedge thing. It seems to blast all the sound right into the back of the sound absorbing seats Luckily I have that giant woof in the trunk.

Underneath the heavy velcro'd fabric, the enclosures are made from marine plywood. They are boxy but padding has been used to soften the angles for a better appearance.

I still would never use plastic enclosures of any kind. Plastic is not good acoustic material. Not going to get any kind of acceptable bass with plastic. Well except for bazooka's.
But bass tubes work on a different principal.

That looks nice! Where can I find some marine plywood?

if you made any kind of plans or still have the dimensions that you used and would be willing to share....that would be kick ***.

Any problems with regular speakers as far as the elements are concerned, or do most prefer to go with marine speakers and radio?

Here is my end result.

I cut out holes in the doors to fit the speakers and used 1 inch spacers otherwise the speakers would be to deep. I put quick connects on the speaker wire leads so I can still take my doors off.

Unfortunately I couldn't put the speaker grills on because the screws I used where too short.

They sound pretty decent when the music is turned up. But I can't bring the bass up too high because it makes my front speakers pop and buzz. So I think I may put an amp under a seat just for the two speakers. That way I can control the bass better.

Or simpler, just put a crossover that drops the lows on the front speakers. But you might need resisters too as factory dash speakers can't take high watts. If you filter off the lows though you might be ok.
