yeah i had front pods for 6.5s and liked them. you have to cut the grille in the door panel to add these so once you add them you can't take them off (unless you want an ugly door panel and open screw holes)

i like the rear door panel pods... and the rear deck pods.. **** it i like them

These speaker pods with a closed driver's door, you're still able to pull the release and pop the hood?

I can't imagine a time where I popped the hood sitting in the car with the drivers door closed, or wasn't eventually going to open the door and get out to go look under the hood?

Not even from the outside of the car with the driver's window down? I've done that at countless car meets and even wrenching in my driveway.
