I'm currently thinking about planning my speakers out on my rebuild. I'm going to put in speakers to the dash and wondering is it better to create door cards building in my speakers using fibreglass? Or should I create pods to put under the dash tucked in? What's everyone's thoughts?

I've just put speakers in my dash just to save leg space from pods I've some tweeters to install also and hope that will be enough

I’ve got tweeters in the dash where the air vents should be and pods under the lower dash rail with 5.25” mids in, I’m 6ft tall and have no issues with leg room

I’m just doing the same with mine. I’m putting pods under the dash in custom pods just 3d printing speaker rings now. Then need to work out the bass side of things so thinking small sub under rear seat

I’ve used metro mk.1 door pockets that have space for a 10cm front speaker and the original Rover speaker holes in the psrvel shelf for a back pair.   All looks ok but not high end.

I've put a single 6 inch dual voice coil speaker under the dash which accepts left and right stereo inputs along with the rover rears. They tweeters point away from each other to give stereo separation for the mid to high frequencies and share a common cone for the lower frequencies. Did it mainly to get hear the bluetooth hands free from the Pioneer wireless which sends phone calls to the front speakers only. Surprisingly good sound.
