    You would need to seal the vents somehow to get good sound. The air will be directed to the upper vents and center so I don't think it will be a problem. You can also open the window a bit.

    I really like to have someone else input about the sound in my car, for me it sounds good but I haven't listened to other setups to compare, except OEM .

    OEM sounds terrible vs anything aftermarket my car sounds horrible really interested in upgrading all the speakers. I replaced the head unit and it made a slight difference just need new speakers to go with it these ones that fit in the vents is a great idea and look very nice I might copy you.

    I had to make a baffle the mount the driver, 1" MDF the inside+5/8" plywood at the front, painted black. Vents inside are blocked by a sponge to help the seal and protect the driver.

    I know, I switched from Kappa to Focal, big difference. I also have woofers in quarter window in my hatchback which improves overall sound. Reason for vent driver is to improve the soundstage.
