    upgrading tweeters to bigger ones

    ive just finished puttin in my crossover and woofer into each door n/p
    but the tweeters are bigger than the factory ones
    they are the vibe SE-K10 and they have the metal surround i want to use, but have no idea on how to mount it onto the tweeter panel

    any ideas?

    if i understand you correctly you either have to mount them on the surface because i dont thing the tweeter pannels will be deep enought or remove them from the mounts all together and fit them in the original mounts

    pop out the grille from the panel, mark up were the surround will sit around where the grille used to be, cut that out with a dremel, stick the surround in wtih tigerseal or sikaflex, mount tweeter, wire up, bobs ur fathers borther.

    thats the most important bit - you can make it bigger with sandpaper but its a lot harder to make it smaller (have to back fill with fibreglass, smooth an paint).
