Hello, My Friends!

I just came here to tell about how I installed a pair of tweeters.

1. Get a pair of tweeters with an integrated case to embed it.


2. Remove the door cover in order to remove the mirror cover


3. Remove the little foam protection


4. Drill a pilot hole with a 1.5mm drill bit at the center (left/up side of the left/bottom square)


5. Just a check the center hole :)


6. Drill a hole with a hole saw or forstner bit (in my case, a 35mm)


7. Check if the diameter has a good fit


8. Remove all left materials


9. Confirm the fit


10. Lock the casing


11. Do it again to the left side :)


12. Connect the cables to the door speaker and cover it with some foam tape


13. Put the mirror cover back, checking if has a good fit and no cables are exposed


14. Very nice :)

Hello, my friend!!
Sorry... no photos :(
I just split the main cable and soldered new wires with a shrinkable rubber tube.
