    Opinions on these for the VXR interior?

    Want to keep things looking OEM+ with the VXR so gonna go for some of these prefab'ed speaker builds for the front doors. Provides space for two 6.5" and one 4" driver.

    Not 100% on finish yet, you can get them trimmed in vinyl that matches the original doorcards or you can get them bare. Most likely I'll be painting them gloss black to match the centre console and my amplifiers, get a bit of a theme going on.

    What do you think?

    Something a bit more classy than MTX mate

    I seem to be in the minority of people that actually like prefab speaker builds. Some look awful but I actually think these look pretty cool, and will look a lot better gloss black and with a couple other little small details added.

    my concern is the large mesh area - is there a pic of them with speakers in them Jimmy? I have only seen the above pic for this product.

    This is the only pic I've seen too. Gonna get some samples sorted out from the distributor I think.

    The grille is removable, and for show purposes they will be finished in such a way to make a nice feature and look good with grille off. The grille will just be on to stop me putting my foot thru the speakers.

    There will most likely be some frosted perspex going on with some subtle blue back lighting....not saying any more than that

    I could go completely custom, but to achieve a finish as good as these the cost and time gets a little out of control.

    Plus from a marketing point of view at the shows it gives people an idea of what you can get off the shelf, rather than going down the full custom route as this does tend to sometimes put people off. The boot will be full custom build, and the front end will be 'off-the-shelf' with some custom touches....covers most of the bases as an ICE demo car.
