Uh......cut, no, cut or damage it or you will need to replace it. It is the barrier keeping moisture from getting inside the car from the door window, etc.

Thanks for the walk through. I might use it when it gets warmed to get at these slight vibration buzzes that occur when the bass gets loud.

Too bad the headliner is nowhere near as easy.

If you remove that moisture barrier, you can just cover the door in Dynamat

great thread. It's spring time and i am looking forward to installing my Focal Access 165 A1 6.5" speakers w/ seperate tweeter.

Do you think there is enough space to mount the crossover switch behind the door panel? or will it have to go somewhere else?

You'll have plenty of space behind the door panel as long as you mount it low so the window doesn't touch it.

any chance it may be exposed to moisture or get soaked?

I don't think so because the factory crossovers are somewhere in there as well (at least in my car). The doors are designed to channel the water so it doesn't build up in the door. I need to remove my door panels one of these upcoming weekends to change a setting on my crossovers so I'll let you know if they were exposed to any water.

when mounting crossovers in the door, would you recommend putting them inside the door (behind the dynamat), attaching them to the door on top of the dynamat and runnig the wires through it, or attaching them to the actual plastic door trim panel?

Actually I'd recommend not putting them in the door at all since you'll have to remove the whole door panel if you ever want to change something. And if you dynamat over all the holes, you'll have to cut that to get through.

You won't be able to attach them to the plastic door panel because there won't be enough clearance.

So...once you get to this point (peeled back the wrap), would changing door handles just require removing a couple of bolts on the handle or is there more to it? I'm wondering how much of a pain it would be to change to painted handles on a VP.
