Hey Dave, I didn't see any smoke to the southeast, so I'm assuming you got yours highs up and running? How does it sound?
Well it rained on Sunday, so I couldn't finish them then... and I was busy all the rest of the week for my trip to Vegas (from which, I just returned...)
Still gotta figure out how to put those Adires in the doors... It ain't gonna be easy!

Hey ladies, and gentlemen! The doors are wired, the Adires in their new homes! While not fully EQ'd yet, the present results are promising, and will be PLENTY loud for me. Again, for the power in the system, others may say "Why doesn't it get any louder?" but for me, the guy who is forever on the SQ quest... plenty loud.
Bob, (Dave, Rob, Jeff, et al...) the Adires went in the doors with the spacers I had made. No modification to the structure of the doors, (as was feared) I did however have to completely lose the map pockets (inside the door panel). Pictures will follow, just have to resize them from the 5.1MP down to something a bit more manageable.
Looks like Dave is buying new door panels when he sells this beast, something he desperately wanted to avoid!

Well, the windows hit the magnets... I was on the way to the grocery store this morning, and damned if I didnt want to roll the windows down...
BANG. Right into the magnets. Only about 3/8 of an inch high, so I think I'll have to live with it, but DAMMIT, I thought I had it all figured out.
(Dave scratches his head...) Maybe I can grind a notch out of the window glass...

When installing a set of Koda components in a Chevy S-10 Blazer we would put a spacer on the window track to get the extra space we needed. It worked like a charm. You may be able to do the same. They are unfortunately a deep speaker. But you can't get any shallower with that kind of excursion.

Already put a spacer in... a 1" thick spacer! That was just to keep the magnet from touching the brace in the door! Can't go any deeper, as I am already VERY close to the inside door panel. What's that about excursion? Mission accomplished! - Page 4 -- posted image. Can you say "hitting the surround"?
Oh, and for those of you interested? I've never heard anything better in the doors of a car than the Extremis 6.8... Get 'em! You won't go wrong, you CAN'T go wrong, if you can fit 'em in! Mission accomplished! - Page 4 -- posted image.
I have them crossed in at 80Hz @ 48dB, right now, and I almost don't even need any subwoofer! Fast and articulate as well! AWESOME drivers!

Dave what about grinding the magnets down? ( Just kidding ) My guy Jeff, who built your pods will be in tomorrow. He and I will do a little brain storming to see if we can come up with an answer to your problem. I'll be in touch.
There is no such thing as free installation!

I second that. I continue to be impressed with my Extremis loaded home speakers (Exodus 2641s and Exodus 61s) on a daily basis.

I like the oak leaf in the first image, looks real nature like.
That last image shows some interesting dynamat patterns, sort of a mosaic lookMission accomplished! - Page 4 -- posted image.
I must compliment you on those speaker rings very nice. Good to see your project came along in a timely fashion. I may be looking at some glassing for my subs now.
Nice David!!
