i put mine in the doors right next to the mid. it might not be the best place in the world as far as acoustics go. but for normal listening and stero comps but it works great for me. i just used a hole saw a tad smaller then the tweeter and used a file to make the hole a little bigger at a time. i'd put the tweet in and check the fitment. that way it is a really snug fit.
