I can't believe that they would do that after so carefully and kind of stealthy hidden the strip light in the grill. There is plenty of room for speakers and the Rumber woofers/speakers to go behind the grill too. As far as them facing the way they are, I think I've seen them mounted with one forward and one sideways in Chargers. Guessing that is for forward punch and intersection coverage on the Rumblers. Either way, that looks bad...can't say I like the way the speakers or LIN3s are mounted on the front bumper either. It would be different if there was a PB up front.
