I pretty much know nothing about audio systems, but am looking to put one in myself. Where do you hide the crossovers that come from the soundbar?

The crossovers for the rear soundbar speakers are under my radio, behind the climate controls - there is quite a bit of room there. I ran all new speaker wires, so they run from the amp under the dash to the crossovers behind the HVAC panel and then back and up to the soundbar.

Yep, Pioneer TS-D1320C: D-Series 5.25" component speakers. I would certainly recommend them paired with the Nalin brackets - the sound is not even comparable to the stock setup...

I have a stupid question and I don't even know if you check this thread anymore (good threat btw) but did you mount the crossovers with screws? Or zipties? Or just let them rest on something? I have the Nalin kit and install is going smoothly except for me not knowing what to use to mount the crossover.

I have big monkey hands and it would seem very difficult to get up in there there with a drill. Any advice?

I screwed them in with self-tapping screws. I tried to get good pics of the crossover locations, but I'm not sure if you can see their exact locations well or not. Getting a drill up there wasn't as bad as I expected, though I do have quite a bit of experience with tight spaces because of my job... zip ties are perfectly acceptable so long as they are tight and the crossovers don't slip around once cinched down.

I don't have components but my Infinity Kappas still have a small external crossovers that have screw terminals for hooking up the wire. They had slots in them for a zip tie so I zip tied them to a dash piece.

I think zip ties will be fine. I've used them to mount my amp under the steering column and they hold without any issues.

I've seen screws, zip ties, tape, and self adhesive velcro all with reported success. It boils down to where you want to mount the crossover.
