I never finished those in the pic bc of the sound issues I had. So I decided to rethink it, and in the midst of redoing them. I'm going with sealed pods (approx .25 cubes) attached to the plastic panel, similar concept as my first, only I'm taking the door cavity out of the equation.

Here's a pic of where I'm at so far.. Base mold

If I could do it all over I would do it the way you are thinking, it's much simpler and bigger airspace to work with, but since I cut my door panels up and like fiberglassing, it'll be trial n error til I find what I like.

From what I have been able to find, it seems they work "best" in sealed (.25 - .45 cubes) off-axis, with tweets on-axis. But like I said alot of the info is mixed.

So your first attempt was to just attach them to the door panels and not the door?

yes thats what he warned you about when i warned you, your first idea of mounting them to JUST the panel was no good, But if the MDF is secured to the door and speakers thru panel secured to MDF you would have a better sound with less rattle.

Yes, with the motor going into the oem speaker cavity, and into the metal door cavity. However I didn't have a tight seal between the plastic panel and the metal (like BC is saying), if I had, I might of been ok. but rather than half ass it I decided to just redo it.

Good, glad you're on the right track! Want to see what you come up with.

Ok I did some test fitting of the speaker rings / spacers. I like the way it fits and its very solid. Next is to fit the door panel over the speaker by trimming it little by little to try my best to make it fit well. Oh and repeat these steps to the other side. :)

Here are some pics.
