Best place to mount tweeter?

ok, I have some CDT HD62 in the front on my 01 accord coupe now. but, I need to flush mount the tweeter somewhere and still have it sound good! I'm useing 3m double side tape now to mount them near my mid. but sometime when I slam my door they come losse. my question is how far away can you mount the tweeter from the mid. and still haveing it sound good? What is the best place on an 6g accord coupe door to mount tweeter other then kick?

you might try them in the top of the door, like maybe by the mirror(just try differnt spots with some double sided tape.... maybe in the dash firing against the windshield.... just have to experiment

No not really, you can mount them near the mids, up in the doors on the corner near the steering wheel sorta is where mine are or even in the A pillar I have seen them, just test what gives you the best imaging with the tape.

Just move them around and see what sounds best to you. Everyone is going to have their opinion where they think it will be optimal, but the reality is that you are going to be the one listening to it, so you should be the one deciding. My tweeters are mounted in the stock tweeter location for a 95 gsr, which is up from the mid range about a foot. Just use the double sided sticky tape and move them around and enjoy.

yes, the general rule of thumb is to keep the tweet as close to the mid as possible.
But in some cases its not the easiest thing to do unless you want to do a good big of modifying. If this is your case, then like was suggested, just move it around and see what sounds good to you.
see ya

i mounted mine, flush on the door panal near my door lock. personally i think that it sounds better, and sounds cleaner. mounting them by the winshield seems 2 hav some probs because the soundwaves cancel and distort the sound. but thats just my 2 cents

well i have the same car you do

and the ruleSSSSSS actually are mount them as close together as possible or as far apart as possible

i use to have tweets in my door rignt on TOP of the midrange speaker, i used plumber's tape(the middle strap with holes) and positioned it right over the speaker

right now i have both the tweets and mids in the kicks and my staging is LOW

next up is to put my tweeters in the A-pillars firing along the windshield, you should test that out, it'll bring the soundstage up

I've put mine at the top of my door card nearest to the dash as possible. You want them high up but not level with your ears or you'll be only hearing the tweats....
