Default tweeter placement oppinions (on the Riviera)

I've been contemplating forever on a place to mount my tweeters while keeping a 'stock' appearance to get better imaging. (lets face it, stock locations SUCK!) anyway, this is what I came up with for the driver'* side, but I'm not sure on the passenger side...



On the passenger side, I don't know where to put the tweeter.. I have two options here. One, I could mount it in the top right vent and aim it toward the driver (which wouldn't really look stock) or mount it in the same spot as the driver'* side, which woudl require removing the dual climate control screen. However, the **** and hte screen are ONE peice, so this is where I run into a problem.. Sure I could mount the tweeter up top, but I have nothing to put in the bottom hole. any ideas? I really don't have any, unless I put a fake 'vent' there to mimic the driver'* side. I think the holes on the passenger side are slightly bigger however, so that could be a problem. I would like to mount the tweeter the same way as the driver'* side so it looks "stock" though. so, any ideas anyone? I don't use the dual climate control anyway, I hardly ever have passengers and if I do, they don't use it. I'd just have to relocate the screen and **** inside the door somewhere leaving them hooked up so that it doesnt' end up throwing any codes on the climate control head unit. Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated. Comments about how the driver'* side tweeter looks too are definately welcome! I am the first Riviera owner to do this so feedback and ideas would be great!

Couldn't you just move the passenger temp screen over into the top vent (unplug, pull wiring out of door, and feed through dash to top vent spot). Then mount the tweeter in the top hole in the door, just like on the drivers side.

i've thought about this same thing, but unfortunately the actual vent holes on the passenger side are bigger than the holes in the doors. The spacing between the holes is also off by 1/4" I think I'll just remove the dual climate control screen and **** and tuck it away inside of the door. It never gets used anyway. I'm just trying to make sure that everything remains close enough to stock that I can just remove everything and put it back to the way it was from the factory when/if I sell it.. Right now, nothing is perminent.

btw, thanks for your idea!
