I have some Infinity components that I installed today. I put the 6.5" in the doors and they soud nice. I want to put the 1" up front in the dash location. When I removed the oem tweeters, I was dissapointed that the oval shape was the speaker housing and not a bracket that I could mount my tweeters in. How do you guys fill in that oval so it looks nice? Is there anywhere I can get a mount so that my new 1" tweeters fit?

There was a good post about installing tweeters in the stock location a while ago. I think he basically pulled the stock tweeter out from the top, dropped the new tweeter in, and siliconed the oval cover back in place so it looked like stock.

Sorry about not searching...I literally had only about thirty seconds to play around on the net the other day. I did read the sticky though.

Unfortunately the platic rim around the tweeters cracked upon removal (the ring that sits flush with the dash and the screen is mounted in). I was hoping there was a replacement that would fill in the oval. I might have to buy new factory tweeters just to rip them apart. :(

Why it may not look 100% stock you certainly could get 1/2 MDF trace the factory tweeter. You then cut a hole in the oval bracket you made for the tweeter and stretch some nice black tweed over it ( like the stock front speaker grilles have on em ).

Not a bad idea. That may be the ways to go. Right now what I did was press some Sculpey clay into the area. After removal I baked the clay and sanded it down a little. I going to use that for a mold for some carbon fiber I have laying around.
