Thank You Sir. Trying to get back in the game !!!
OK. Working with a couple of mixed drinks, a measuring tape, a couple of test dummies, and some VERY well recorded music ...
I have completely reset the angles of the tweeters.
Both were raised up over the hump of the dash and repositioned more on Axis.
Not necessarily directly to the driver, more like the driver's side tweeter to the passenger's ear and the passenger's tweeter to the driver's ear.
Amazing difference !!! The stage and Image is VERY pronounce !!! Deep onto the hood and beyond the vehicle's side mirrors where everything should be !!!
I had a question if raising the tweeters would create any separation between the tweets and door mid drivers, but I have not heard anything anywhere close to separation.
Thank God this is not the case with this application.
After the new year when I get time, Plans are to remove the A-Pillars and have them fiber glassed.
Hopefully after that, I can get back to work on the doors for proper treatment. For now, I simply just don't have time to work on this.

Alright Bitches !!! Front Stage UPGRADES !!! Trying my best guys.
Please remember, nothing is set in stone and I'm constantly testing and tuning.
This will be a 2 way passive front stage 6.5" driver and tweet setup.
One of the cool things I really like about this Avalanche is the tweeter placement. Not the angles of the tweet, but the actual location in reference to the mid bass driver location.
According to the good ole measuring tape, it all measures out so that I can time align mid and tweet together. Thank God !!!
This location is almost the same as the 2002 Ford F150 Supercrew I was working on.
So for testing purposes, I took the stock tweeters out and apart and installed the pods out of the Ford and directly on to the BOSE grilles.
Sorry for the night pics.
I know guys, that's not on axis or off axis. Those tweets are on adjustable pedestals and THIS is where the Stage and image sounds best to me.
No "tricking or notch EQ'ing" here. Left and Right separation seems to be Dead on Balls Accurate as is.
I may change the angles a little more on axis, might help, we will see. But with this truck, they will stay in this area and not go onto the dash.
After a couple of SQ comps, I think the A-pillars will be ready for Fiberglass.
As for the doors. Nice baffle with a 6.5" driver for midbass.
Deadning and MLV ??? As soon as I can afford it guys. Unfortunately, working on a very tight (closer to none at the moment) budget. What can I say, Shit Happens.

This is what they called a "Phantom Dually" back in the 90's.
3500 Series GMT400 Fat Rear Fenders with monster "Pro Street" style Rear Wheels and Tires.
Random pics found on GOOGLE.
This truck has a long wheel base bed where as my truck will be a Short Wheel Base bed and actual Dually Wheels and Tires from a 3500 Series GMT400 Truck.
Most I remember seeing were short wheel base trucks like mine. Should look Really Nice.

Got to do some more work on this build:
In this post I will teach you how to reverse mount speakers and also how to use threaded inserts:
I found the threaded inserts at my local hardware store, I have also seen them at Home Depot, Lowes, and Menards. I really like them as you don't have to be concerned with stripping out the wood if you have to remove the screws to remove the speaker and put it back in. They are very easy to use as I will outline in the video at the bottom of the post:
Here is a picture of what they look like once mounted fully, I chose to use a washer as well to have more of a surface for the screw to hold against.
With the reverse mounting I found this configuration to be very appealing to the eye. I really like how you cant see any of the mounting holes, just the outer most part of the surround.
In the video below I outline how to install the threaded inserts, as well as how to reverse mount a speaker. Enjoy!

Hello to all the followers out there I've been watching CAF's vidoes for bout a year. now just saw a new one and found out about this website from him and decided to join. My father got me started with loud stereo systems when I was 10 and I've been doing it ever since.
