I'm intending to install Focal K2P 165W 6.5 component speakers in my beemer.
Heard from some installers that it requires extensive mod to the panel. Might go even to the extent of cutting into the panel, depending on the mounting depth, also heard that there have been cases of leaking due to damage done to the structure.
Would any of you guys happen to have done it before. If so, please share your experiences or how to go about doing it correctly. Cheers!
I think u can safely put the Rainbow or the dynaudio on the front door of E46 w/o modification or cutting the door.
I have the 6.5" Dynaudio on my front door. But then again, the gap between the door and the panel is only mm away and when u blast it really loud, there will be metallic rattling sound....putting dynamat is impossible cos the gap is too minute..
Anyway, would you like to put a mid bass 6.5" down the bottom and a 4" in the middle before the tweeter at the top? I saw the space on the door panel that usually fits the mid range speaker in the Hi-Fi speaker option. The original size id about 3" but i think 4" possible cos these guys are quite flat.
You mean 6.5" midwoofer at the bottom, 4" mid in the original tweeter location, and dashmount the tweets?
That would mean that the 4" is gonna be closest to your ears... I'm just afraid of very tricky staging because of such unequal distances... "rainbow effect", unless you have very dedicated time alignment?
Can consider... Tweets and 4" mid in custom fibre enclosure, and mounted on A pillar, with 6.5" mid woofer in usual location. Distances will be nicer, and easier to manage.
