Has anyone flush-mounted tweeters where I surface mounted mine?

Default Has anyone flush-mounted tweeters where I surface mounted mine?

Just trying to see if this is possible, since I like the way they sound where I placed them (no signs of separation from woofer and tweeter). I would like a cleaner look (which is why I am seeing about flush-mounting them).

mine are a bit closer to the windshield, but they are flush mounted there. I think they look factory. I personally was unimpressed with the sound from that spot though, which could be contributed to the lackluster tweeters (alpine type r) I just replaced the components with boston pro 6e's and left those mounted on the woofer, much like a coax speaker. i like the sound a lot more, but i left the tweeters in the spot where you see them, just not hooked up.

No! Why you just didn't order a set of tweeter pods.

Mine are mounted like RedRallyeZ's are. They sound good there IMO and they look like factory for the most part. I think what helps is the ring that goes around the tweeter so you don't see the hole where the drill ate away at the pillar.

But they're behind you. Why would you want tweeters behind you?
