    ICE install in progress. Opinions required plz (and there's a poll too)

    To cut a long story short check out my biography for whats happening. The really short version is where to mount a set of 5" components.
    I have thought about mounting them to the furthest edge of the stealth shelf, but then have thought about the magnetic interference caused by the subs.

    So here's my choices:
    Shelf (on the edge, or raising the shelf at an angle to increase gap between the cones)
    Rear doors

    Any other ideas welcome.

    Here's a quick pic of it now

    mines a coupe but in the back you just want unamped rear fill with the fronts doing the driving,id put them either next to the shelf or in the back doors,then if there components you can mount the tweeters up on the b post facing back to raise the stage for back seat passengers,.

    I have mine built in to the c-pillars, though they are 4" components, not 5's.

    I like that. What kind of work was involved?

    Fair bit. MDF rings fixed to the c-pillar trims, then built up with fibreglass & fillers, then retimmed it in Alcantara.
    Similar to the way you would do tweeter builds on the a-pillar, only on a slightly larger scale.
