That is some weight back there.  Not sure how long the 6 12s will stay, i might drop down to like 4 8's or something in the future.  It's just SO HEAVY with that box (100% 1" Acrylic) and the 6 monster b2 12's.

Time to start thinking about the door panels.  I am doing 2 sets of B2 Audio "Mani" (aka ReferenceI 3 ways.  I could pretty easily do one set of 3 way's but i figured making it more complicated and stressful was more fun and entertaining SMH lol :D  Remember, ALL OF THIS is subject to change.  I don't even want to post about it yet but i started cutting the panel.  Might as well.

 

 

Something like this. And no, i can't put tweeters in my A-pillars. I have boost and also a AF sensor gauge in the driver side pillar (for the Turbo's).  So i have to keep it all in the panels.  It's ok, it will sound good, probably.

This grill definitely doesn't come in and out easily.  Just out. And it was a bitch. Where is my saw?

cardboard and some ideas

the holes do NOT represent where the speakers are going to be.  They are going to be mounted to the door and this will actually be a screen. I just cut holes so i can reference what is happening and where the speakers will be (but in deeper).

the little curve going into the pocket was kinda tricky. I hope i can pull it off.

time to make something to mount the speakers to the door in.  These will be sunk in and the previous cardboard will be a screen (as stated a few times)

the door panel is butchered up pretty good in order to fit this (there will be at least 3 layers of .75) but i got it to fit good.

the door panel has an uneven surface so the 3rd later is offset on the back side.  It will be sealed up soon along with a bunch of @Second Skinon the door panel.

tweeters will be going up top either in the spot where the factory 3 was or in the sail panel.  I don't have a lot of choice in the matter. All i can do is try to do a good job. Stay tuned ill post more when i have more!

So.... are those speakers going to be sticking that far out where the cardboard is? 🤣 just kidding. 

Dude, they already look good! I wish I had somewhat of a decent vision for my doors like you do. I like how they tuck a little behind the template (I know, that's subject to change. I think it looks cool though... but then again, who am I 🤣) keep up the good work!
