So the midranges are in the A-pillars and appear to be off-axis, and you have the tweeters mounted on a different off-axis plane. Any particular reason you did this?

Not nit-picking at all, I come off as such but I'm genuinely curious. Most of the SQ builds I've researched have both the midrange and tweeter mounted on the same plane, with on/off-axis being subjective to driver selection.

Also see it appears you're using Rage Gold! Stuff sands so well! I need a new front stage and fiberglass...

You're normally right about having the speakers on the same plane, but I wanted to try a few things.

While I do prefer a more on-axis sound, I decided the mids would be a little better cosmetically off axis in the pillars... they wouldn't stick out as much. Being off axis also helps them disappear into the soundstage a better. Listening to the system, if you couldn't physically see them, you'd have no idea they were there.

I wanted to get the tweeters as far forward as possible and utilize the factory location. Also, I wanted to experiment with using the windshield to my benefit rather than fighting it. You're actually listening to the reflection of the tweeter which turns out to be about the same height as the mids in the pillars. Each speaker has its own dedicated amplifier channel so i could adjust the levels individually and prevent the tweeters from sounding too bright.

That's what I assumed. Still sounds great. I looked up the Focal Utopia's.

Geeeze.
