semcoinc is on a distinguished road
Got my Vifa/Peerless mids today and was able to get one installed in the front passenger door.

All I can say is that this, to me, is a "PERFECT" sound improvement over the 8ohm Founteks. The Vifa mid has so much more punch due to its 4ohm impedance and possibly quality. Whatever, I'm thrilled that I went this route and pulled the 8ohm Founteks out.

I'll get the driver door done tomorrow and the Amazon mids are due to arrive on Friday.

The Vifa/Peerless fits nicely into the E46 front door cup holder mount (as well the same cup holder mount in the E53 rear doors), however, I had to grind down the alignment ridge inside the cup and the fit was still a wee bit tight. Without grinding on the cast Vifa frame I could only get the Vifa down to within about 1/2" or so of the bottom of the cup. Works for me. Other approaches are free to achieve a more perfect insertion.





I should have the other Fountek out tomorrow and will contact Clock when that's completed.
