I like  :smiley: Wonder how they sound being housed mid A pillar? Got my tweets at top of A pillars on angle so hitting the headrests. One of the best sounds ive heard.

That looks great.

If you are lazy like me you can get some free tweeters though from the standard Mark 2 GTI stereo.

All you have to do is remove the covers of the speakers in the dash, then cut the sub part of the speaker off leaving just the middle................ta da free tweeters :D. You dont need any crossovers or anything either  :smug:

Only do this if you have door speakers for the mid etc of course, oh and I am not saying you will win awards for sound quality here but they sound pretty good.

Nothing better than a free mod  :laugh: :kiss:

Certainly makes it look easy enough. I might have a go on mine at some stage, possibly housing them a little further down the pillar though as the strength of the tweeters in my focals is high enough as it is! Maybe a little trip to the scrappy is in order.

thats the best mk3 ive seen..ever! its just clean and subtle.. :cool:

Great idea, although it depends on how big your A pillars are. I just got a couple from the scrappy, but then realised that it won't work on a mark 2 Golf as they are nowhere near wide enough, part of them are also covered by a rubber seal. The only park that be wide enough is at the bottom and to the inside of them, but of course down there it's too low and the sound will be going across the front of the windscreen toward each other instead of towards you!

It is a great idea that! I suppose it would work for gauges as well  :huh:

Ive done this to several of my other cars. But ive ended up painting mine rather than covering in cloth. With the mk2's take the standard ones out and raise them using some ply would and angle them to where you want and use some filler to curve into shape :D
