Front door tweeter placement.

I bought a 6.5” component speaker set for the front doors. I am not sure where I want the tweeter to go. I narrowed it down to 2 locations. First one is in the door pocket. It will be aimed up towards the driver on both sides. It fits real well there almost like it was meant to be. It fits snug in the upper corner. My concern is the sound coming from the driver’s side. I am not sure if my leg will be in the way. If it is not in the way I was thinking I might need to use the -3db option for the tweeter on the driver’s side since it is way closer.
The second location is in the triangle where the mirrors mount. Concerns with that are they are to far from the midrange and the sound will be too harsh. I would most likely use the -3db option for both sides in this location. Does anyone have an opinion on where would be the best place for them?

The car is a 2000. See picture.

Re: Front door tweeter placement.

I like them where Ford put them in the Mach system. Where the mirrors mount havent had any problems and the sound is great as far as im concerened.
