^have had that solder gun myself for a few years now.

SemcoMike (since there are 2 Mikes in here) - excellent pics of the JL install! I am debating whether to do quick connects or solder small lengths of speaker wire on the woofers myself.

So on the tweeters you just glued them in place in the factory foam mount and did not need to reuse the plastic mount correct? Should eliminate a potential source of rattles.

Also, very interesting that the woofers were 2ohm. Wonder if the rear woofers are also 2ohm? If so, our theories are out the window as we were assuming we were doubling impedance on 10 speakers and we may only be doing that on 6, and yet halving the impedance on 4 so the amp should not be taxed much more at all. And since these drivers are more efficient no worries there.

I'll get the rear midrange sizes up for you shortly with a few pics.
