Default Comps 6-1/2 Staging/Placement

Ive got a 92 Chey reg truck & was wondering where I should place them?

Doors, or kick panels?

Thought kick panels would be a better choice, but I've got a 4x4 & like to play in the mud & dont want to worry about kicking them or getting mud/dirt all over them.

or

Was thinking in the doors, being thats what I did with a couple other Chevy trucks I had. It didnt sound bad, but I'm sure it could be better!

Just want to get the most of it, what are your thoughts on this...

If kicks aren't really practical then I'd say put them mid-way up the doors as close to the front of the doors as possible. That's the factory location for my door speakers and they sound fantastic.

I would put them on angled rings in the doors. being in the doors will keep them safe but angling them will help a little with the imaging.

Thought about that also, just not sure how to go about something like that. Would I have to have those specially made?

The ideal is to have as close to equal distance from each speaker to your ear as possible. That's why kicks are so popular but lacking the ability for kicks (or in my case, unwillingness to put in kicks due to wanting to keep my setup low key) then the front of the doors mid-way up will give you as close to equal length from each speaker to your ears as possible. Other than those two the only other option that might work would be decent small comps in the dash crossed over at 100hz and decent midbass in the doors from 100hz to about 60hz.

Then I'll stick with the doors because I really dont want to end up kicking or stepping on them some how, I would be semi pissed! Thanks for the response & ill also check on having them angled like SPY mentioned, but dont think ill have the money to have something like that made being I no longer have the tools anymore to do so, or I just could get some messurments & go have the wood cut for me...

I got some nice comps coming in, not the best nor the worst, but they do sound good IMO..

Do a simple listening test with your speakers and see where they sound the best for you prior to mounting, the location may or may not surprise you. Your ears will be the ultimate judge on what sounds good to you.
