Re: Dash Speaker Pods

Interesting! It's probably easier to find a 5x7 speaker than a 4 incher. In my mustang I replaced the 3 inch dash speakers with tweeters, they reflect directly off the windshield. With that setup the tweeters are at ear level, quite a pleasing audio experience. What other audio components are you ru...

Knock Knock - Xr4ti Project and intro

Hello Merkur fans,

I bought a roller XR a few months ago.

The plan is to put a 302 into it and turn it into a two door XR8.

I've been shooting videos of the process, but I don't know if external links are allowed here.

Great to be part of this community, looking forward to chatting with you all
