I've got 4x6 speakers in the doors, mounted using the map

enclosures from an A1 Jetta, and it works well.

It's worth mentioning that I also have 3 1/2" speakers in the dash,

2-way subwoofer boxes with 8" subs behind the seats, so I'm not relying

those door speakers exclusively!

However, it is one way to get a relatively unobtrusive mounting

in the doors.

Take care,

   Adrian the madman also recieves the Clutchfield catalog and
its good to

hear a recomendation..  Anyway, for a caddy, were would locate
the large

speakers, in the door ?? A while back we had a '76 Saab 2 dr with the

speakers facing the seats, lower section.. But the sound was great and ,

possible, I would do the VW caddy the same way, so what do you-all

  Yeah, Best Buy will be glad to help out.  My son got a

  $400 stereo and four speakers for another $200 from

  Best Buy for Christmas.  They were purchased during a

  "free installation" special and the salesperson said

  that they would honor the "free installation" after

  Christmas since they were a gift.  My son goes back

  after Christmas and they want $180 to install the

  system.  Yeah, right!  I went to Crutchfield

  bought a $18 harness and plan on doing it myself.

  Plus, Crutchfield stands behind what they sell and

  provide excellent customer service.

    The easiest way to do it is to go up to best buy or

    a car audio store and buy

    a harness from them. They will probably help you out

    a little with the

    install too.
