    Had to make my own tweeter baffles... I used some type of cardboard...( dont remember the name )

    Simple, trace and cut.. Not the cleanes cuts but it worked.

    I had done the same in my IS300 (same baffle/speakers) initially till I got a tool I could make wooden baffles out of. Works pretty well.

    yup..i resused the stock tweeter to mount my front tweeter to. looked a little ghetto, but once the door cover was back on, couldn't tell.
