    Let me see or read some ideas that y'all have done or seen done to replace the 4x10's in the rear with some better speakers. I'm thinking 6 1/2's but would probably need to do some cutting and modifying to make it work.

    What have y'all done? :popcorn:

    If this topic has already been discussed please post the link here and I'll go read. I was unable to find it via that search feature lol

    I was just thinking the same thing. Im new to these a nd assumed they would be 6x9, very disapointing. My car electronics guy said throw all the money at the fronts and just run some rear 4x10s off deck power for filler. He said memphis and kenwood both make some.
    He also suggested running two 5.5's in each side for a total of 4. Custom mounting bracket ofcourse.
    Im very curious to hear what others have done.

    In the car audio world u spend all the money on your front stage and don’t have rear speakers. U want the sound to be coming at you and not behind you. U want to feel like your at a concert listening to live music and not surround sound like watching a movie... but to each their own as everyone hears differently and likes different sounds
