Anyone have suggestions on where to mount some tweeters in the front of an '89?
Sounds good, but most aftermarket gauges are 2.25", while tweeters are typically .75 or 1 inch. Assuming you're willing to fill the gaps, youd' then have a problem finding passenger-side pods. I don't know if they're sold for the JDM or UK markets.jmart said:Maybe a custom tweeter mount can be made from some small gauge pods that mount on the A pillar. Then they'd be well aimed.
The same could be said for power mirrors. The mirror trim panels are about as high and far forward as things can be on the door.downest said:You could get really fancy and install power windows, and then use the crank holes as the speaker holes.
Not as such. Power mirrors were optional in other markets, so you could get a set imported from another LHD country (using RHD mirrors would aim the mirrors at the passenger seat). '90-93 Integra mirrors can be adapted to fit the CRX with some careful grinding.JLAudioFan said:Are there power mirror kits for CRX's?
You can use sedan mirrors, if you transfer everything over to the CRX mirror shells. Jmart bought the ones I had, but I can definitely get more if you're interested. If you sent me some CRX mirrors I would even be willing to swap the sedan internals into them to make you a bolt-in kit.JLAudioFan said:I had a 2000 SI that had the factory tweets, and that was a great spot to mount them. Are there power mirror kits for CRX's? It'd be pretty sweet to put those on then mount the tweets where the mirror adjustment is...
I thought of mounting the tweets like the 99-00 Si(also 96-00 Ex) have but your gonna be hard pressed to get tweets mounted in that trim piece on the Crx since there is not as much room as there is on the later civics.JLAudioFan said:I had a 2000 SI that had the factory tweets, and that was a great spot to mount them.

You can get em for the RHD cars to fit over there. When you contact a company that offers pods, just write/call them and tell them you need the RHD one.youd' then have a problem finding passenger-side pods. I don't know if they're sold for the JDM or UK markets.
I'd really like a pic of this setup, sounds very cool!zerocool1014a said:i mounted my tweeters at the top of the pillar on each side.. its not super clean but i ran the wiring through the weather stripping but it sounds great and is directed almost perfect for the driver and passenger gives really clear highs... i will try to get pictures.. once again not the prettiest but im sure with a little fiberglass work they would look alot better
No offense taken, i had stated before it was rought and also i wasnt the person who installed them.. it was the guy i bought the car from.. as for the connectors they were red i think.. just sun bleached and they are mounted with an external mount that is screwed into the plastic.. once again not the cleanest look but im sure it can be done alot better than that, i just havent had the time to make it look better and i have never worked with fiberglass or anything else so... but i can totally understand where your coming from i wish they were cleaner too.. just gotta find the timeNeil said:I would start this comment by saying "no offense, but........", but I can't even do that.
How you gonna mount tweeters up there (which is unique place for them), but just tuck the wires in the plastic instead of going through the plastic? Not only that, but you had to use BRIGHT PINK connectors? I hope these pics were taken DURING the install, and not after finished product. I'm usually not that critical about other people's cars/work, but dude.............
Are the tweeters mounted, or two-sided taped on there?
I'm sorry if I'm being a d--k, but it's the first thing I thought after looking at the pics.
