Hi everyone, long time lurker, first time poster. Thanks everyone for all the information. It made my install go very smooth. Pretty much everything has been covered by other posts so I'll just list my components and a few comments.

Audison Bit Ten
Alpine PDXV9
Hertz 280.3
Hertz 1800.3
JL Audio Stealth Box
Sound deadening in door and trunk area.

I used a busman waterproof breaker at the battery instead of a fuse. Had to cut some metal in the doors for the 7 inch mid woofer to fit. Door speaker adapters were made from 3/4 inch HDPE, super dense and waterproof. Had to cut the tweeter pods to flush mount the Hertz tweeter, it way to big. I didn't feel comfortable mounting the stealth box with only 1 bolt per the directions so I added a second bolt. It's solid now. Alpine amp fits nicely on top of the factory amp, only need to trim a little for wiring. 10 watt resistors were used on all facets amp outputs. Amp and resistors don't even get warm after 2 hours of music. USB cable ran to the glove box for tuning from the driver seat. The system stills more tuning time on the Bit Ten but damn it sounds good at any volume.

Nice selection of gear. The audison doesn't have internal load resistors already?
I know you already mocked up your tweeter mounts, but I've had good luck with them in the a pillar. Brings the stage just behind the Guage pod.

Bit Ten does not have internal load resistors, in the documentation, it states you will need to install resistors. @porkcereal do you have pictures of how you mounted in the A pillar. I bought spare tweeter sail pods in case I messed up.

I don't have any pics on me. I've had 2 different sets. First set just had holes cut then spacers made. I'm actually not using them currently. Second set i bought were fiber glassed into the lower portion where it begins to flare. They were originally for 3.5 in but i made a temp adapter for my tweeters.
