Default Where to mount Speaker's Tweeter (6 1/2 components)

I know alot of people on here have either 5 1/4 or 6 1/2 component speakers in their fairing, I am looking at some ideas/pictures of how you mounted the tweeter. I don't want to cut a hole in the grille cover, just for the reason of the speakers I have are not water resistant, so I want to have them mounted inside to help a little from getting rained on. I will be putting in Kicker KSS65's.

wow that's a tough one seeing youre not wanting to modify the grilles. youre gonna have to make a bracket and probly use the screws to inner and front fairing as mounts.
if I was you id mount them in the grilles and just use quick disconnects for the tweeter so when washing the bike and what not you could easily remove them.
either way good luck

That is a good idea about the quick disconnects, and I was thinking of making some sort of cover, ie a cut plastic bag, that I could put over the grill if I am at work or somewhere and the bike will get rained on. I know that I have seen some pictures on one of the million threads about amps/speakers of people making their own brackets, but I can't find them anymore.

Well, speakers are mounted, still need to paint the bracket but that might be a winter project. I used the Scosche VW adapters for the Kicker 6 1/2 components. I didn't have to file down some of the adapters because the rubbed against the fairing and made noise going down the highway. Sounds good, but a Soundstream amp and VTwin Audio amp bracket, will be going in over the winter.

I tapped into the power wire for the iPod plug. I think it was red, but don't quote me, it's been a while. If you have a volt tester, just touch the node to the pin inside the plug and ground it out. Make sure you at least have the acc turned on!
