Like everyone else, I think the factory speakers in the D Pillar are horrible. I had read a lot of posts on how people had changed them up and what not, so I decided to take on my own project.

The following is my project, in pictures since I don't like to type lol...

The speakers fit the factory holes perfectly. They sound marginally better than before, but definitely better. As soon as it's warm out I'm going to figure out a way of holding them in place better when they're "extended".

Creative idea with the hinge, I like it, nice work. (y)

Space permitting you could get some gains in the sound dept. when they're swung open by enclosing the back side of those with a cap of some sort.

The speakers are already fully enclosed by plastic. They are marine/hot tub style, so they're made to be waterproof.

I'll probably replace the hinges with a type of torque hinge so it stays in place better, and replace the silver rings with some type of actual knob.

Also the speakers came with in-line high pass filters, which I removed because the head unit doesn't put out a ton of power, and they sound better without them.
