arrangement for tweeters on the dashboard

hello everyone i'm searching for a predisposition of new tweeters in my civic type S. i saw there are some adapter for the corner of the window but i don't like them because they're not so stable and i don't find where to buy them... i'm thinking about those two triangles on the sides of the speedometer because they are directed towards the driver, anyone knows if it's possible?

thank's you very much for the help

no one answered me then i'll answer myself
those two triangles are not empty behind, they have a thick plastic grid so it is impossible to make a hole to fit the tweeters... however the material of almost all the dashboard is not hard but soft then i don't know if is proper for sticking a tweeter support on it, if any one has an experience to share i will be happy to listen him

What is wrong with updating the OEM tweeters like many others have?

Not sure why you don't have the OEM tweeters, all Civic's come with them. Yours is a 2011 plate so there should be OEM tweeters there. Just replace them with the tweeters you want. If they don't fit then make them fit, all part of the fun!

Yep, tweeters are located behind the plastic panel near the wing mirrors, behind the circular bit with the tiny holes punched in, to be precise.

Front Tweeter Kit

Here is what you need. It's for a Type R however the parts are the same size for all civics.

The locations you have shown are not speaker grills or any kind of mesh grill.
Try contacting Cox motorparts for a price and see if it is a full kit for both sides.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think he's only looking for the housing therefore no need for any mesh or grill as the speakers that will be purchased will come with all this.

Yeah so you're only looking for parts 4 and 5. Contact them using the "Contact Us" form at the bottom of the page. Give them both part numbers and you should be okay to go.

For the pictured he used on post 1
They are not grills so if he wants to add a speaker their it will be no use since the sound will be blocked.

I know but I'm assuming he want's to remove the ones he has in place for the housing that actually has a space for a tweeter therefore there's no need for the ones he has shown in post 1.
