You'll have plenty of space behind the door panel as long as you mount it low so the window doesn't touch it.great thread. It's spring time and i am looking forward to installing my Focal Access 165 A1 6.5" speakers w/ seperate tweeter.
Do you think there is enough space to mount the crossover switch behind the door panel? or will it have to go somewhere else?
I don't think so because the factory crossovers are somewhere in there as well (at least in my car). The doors are designed to channel the water so it doesn't build up in the door. I need to remove my door panels one of these upcoming weekends to change a setting on my crossovers so I'll let you know if they were exposed to any water.any chance it may be exposed to moisture or get soaked?

Actually I'd recommend not putting them in the door at all since you'll have to remove the whole door panel if you ever want to change something. And if you dynamat over all the holes, you'll have to cut that to get through.when mounting crossovers in the door, would you recommend putting them inside the door (behind the dynamat), attaching them to the door on top of the dynamat and runnig the wires through it, or attaching them to the actual plastic door trim panel?
So...once you get to this point (peeled back the wrap), would changing door handles just require removing a couple of bolts on the handle or is there more to it? I'm wondering how much of a pain it would be to change to painted handles on a VP.What I have done on other cars is wait for a hot day, our used a hair dryer to heat it arund the seal. On the mazda and chrysler cars, the sealant has been a tar type substance that would restick after work was done.
Generally, thats the case. I looked it up in the shop manual at one point, but I dont mind the black handles.So...once you get to this point (peeled back the wrap), would changing door handles just require removing a couple of bolts on the handle or is there more to it?

I did buy a plastic speaker adapter. I haven't tried the fit yet, but I am also thinking of getting mdf rings cut from a local wood shop. What did you end up doing for your car?Did you have a tan ring around yours, and did you buy a speaker adapter to fit the aftermarket speaker in the enclosure.
