I am in the midst of installing new front components and an amp for them, but it just occurred to me after being in my car that I have no idea where to mount the crossovers for the front components. Who has done this that might have some ideas for where they mounted their crossovers? I dont' want to put them in the trunk because then I'll have to run midrange woofer and tweeter speaker wire from the tweeter all the way through the car. I'd rather mount the tweeter somewhere in the front. I'm open to any ideas. Thanks for the help


my crossovers are HUGE. I wish they were smaller. I had a set of speakers made by rambow that had tiny crossovers, about the size of your index finger!
Anyways I took some pictures of how I did it, but photopoint is down at the momoent, so I"ll post pics later. They look really messy right now, but I'm not finished with the glove box just yet. All the wiring will be hidden, and the crossovers will look sunk in because of a false floor.
I chose the glove box becasue that thing is HUGE, and I'll still be able to show off the crossovers. If you want to hide the crossovers, then under the seat would be the best solution, then wroute the wire under the carpet from one of the bolting points (or heater duct) to the edge of the car by the door rail and right up to the speakers. By the way, running new wire to the tweeter pods is a PINTA.
