    Ya i know about tacotunes...but would it be worth it making some? i have 1/4" MDF leftover from my sub box. I'd rather not pay and wait for more stuff..

    sounds like you already have the answer then...


    my tweeter baffles were not near that thick though so idk if 1/4" will fit. I guess it depends on if you mount the baffle on top of the metal braket or behind it.

    i make the tweeter baffles i sell out of 1/4 mdf. I know your already done but just saying. I'm very interested in why you were using 1/4mdf for your sub box though?

    I used 3/4" MDF for the box, but i created the maze pattern inside for the air to get out out of 1/4" MDF. And thanks everyone!

    Thanks for bringing this up. Not to hijack OP's thread, but I just looked and my SR5 has the covers but it sure looks like there is nothing behind them. Thought the reason I couldn't hear them is because they just kind of suck... something new to look forward to upgrading. Have a day!

    Thanks Bro. Actually I intended on mounting them in the A pillars, but didn't want to risk damaging the airbag. Anyway, I went with the Polks MM6501's. But, the Infinity series are a nice set of components also. Infinity is known for being crisp and clear. I'd like to see your install. Post a picture if you have one.

    they do say, for best reproduction of sound the tweeter should be as close to the mid as possible, with in 7" usually
