        If you're willing to do some custom work, consider some build-out 
panels for the kick panels.  You'll get better stereo separation, and 
you should be able to fit a pair of 6 1/2" or 8" mids in them (one 
on each side), with room for tweeters as well.  Alternatively, you 
could put the tweeters low in the doors, keeping them close to the 
        Another advantage of kickpanel speakers is that you don't have to 
run wires into the doors, cleaning up the install a little bit.  I 
would recommend an external amp, since all convertibles are noisy, 
and MGs with Monza exhausts are noiser than most...
