No idea but it is special!

Mine had nothing there but inner door skin. These are the mysteries that people who buy not build there vehicles never discover! Plug something in and see what happens?

You have got a lot of water in there, any idea how it got there? I had a little there on my van but could not find a way in - my best guess is around the side trim.

I left all the drip runs clear but my thinsulate is gonna be getting wet if your door is any indication.

Wet because I had the door open for a while when I was distracted by another problem that came up. Van had a lot of water everywhere outside because of snow melting when it warmed up last night followed by heavy rain. All you see came from dripping above while exposed. Sadly I have no covered workspace to work in. It has been below freezing weather until today. Adds to the fun of it all

I wouldn't fiddle with it too much until you confirm that it isn't the side impact sensor for the air bag system.

That's a good guess. My van has the base vinyl seats so no built in airbags. Buffy does yours have seat airbags?

That I couldn't say. They weren't identified as a feature of 10-pt leather seats.

Just discovered another mystery. Thick wiring harness thru floor board to compartment under driver's seat. Two sets of females, quite large, all appearing to end at nothing.

Trying to find out now is if anyone has stripped the driver area down far enough to expose metal floor. Starting to think I need to be talked off the ledge. Can't expose the far reaches of the floor matt without loosening dash it appears. Where did you stop with sound insulation?

You are talking to the wrong person to be talked off the ledge lol. I stopped short of removing the dash but removed the seats and kick plates on both sides. This allowed me to flip up the floor on both sides for access.

Revisit my thread for details, its all there!

I've practically lived on your thread at times but I'm left with unanswered questions.

I'll post over there, starting to feel weasily about hijacking the tweeter thread.

Those wiring harnesses are part of the optional upfitter wiring package. Check the BEMM for more info.

Once again thanks for the help Michael. What a horror story. I'm coming off the ledge, I'll sound insulate what I can and not go rabid on the matter.

On other matters I was getting ready to fabricate a mount using black ABS to achieve what Manga suggested as a good way to mount tweeters. Had already cut some short pieces when I finally withdrew the cross-overs from the styrofoam block they were packaged. Lo and behold under them I discovered Hertze includes angled mounts for the purpose. The included booklet depicts mounting them just as he advised. Aim the one on the driver side at the passenger and vice versa.
