    One thing to keep in mind is the lock and window setup your have. I have the elec. window/lock cars can be a pia and each application will take a different location. I reall want to do it, but am pretty timid in trying on a elec lock and window door

    Take you time and figure out some type of box or kick pannel to put them in. I ended up just cutting holes at the bottom of my doors, just to get the speakers in. They sound ok but if I had the time and money, I would have done something better.

    Hey Eric
    I'm getting ready to install some door speakers 5 ¼ components and I'd like to do some thing like what you put together. How did you get the stereo wire into the door? Right now I have lines that are coming from the rear bench
    seat area up to the firewall. I see rubber hose that is attached from the door to the truck but don't know how to get to it.
    Do you have any tips on wire routing for me? Thanks for the help.
    Anthony
