    Marv,

    I see you mounted the crossovers for the Front speakers close to the amps on the amp rack/sub box.

    Is this the best location for them? If so why?

    I have seen them mounted within the doors many times. This also alows for using about half as much speaker wire ($$$) because you only have to run 1 wire from the amp to the doors?

    Authorized Hybrid Audio Technologies Dealer (www.hybrid-audio.com) ARC Audio amplifiers, subs, processors now available! Helix Processors now available! For you super high end guys Brax amplifiers will be available soon! (PICS HERE and new website coming soon with Subwoofers, Amplifiers, Wiring Kits)
    I prefer not to mount them in the doors due to possible issues created by moisture/constant shock from door closing (I've replaced many with loose components on the boards as well as corrosion) etc and although it might cost you 4-5 bucks extra in speaker wire that's a lot less than the cost of a new crossover!
