I always liked rear fill too, untill I trusted my installer and set-up my car for it. My JL 4-channel amp is also made for Front sound stage setups. It puts 150x2 to the fronts and 75x2 to the rears. From what I've learned is that rear fill is Ok as long as you don't hear ANY vocals coming from the rear. When your at a concert the singer(*) are in front of you. On SQ oreanted CD'* like the judges play, in the booklet, it tells you what sounds/voices/instruments are coming from on the stage and where you should hear them in a vechile, when setup correctly for SQ, just one of the man subjective tests. Not easy to do, but I've had a few good role models who have spent some time with me setting it up.
Side story, On New Years met some friends of friends and couple were into stereos, We did a little test listen to each car, first was mine and the guy wasn't impressed by my SQ. He kept asking does it go louder? He thought it sounded good but he tells me his sounds better no offense. None taken, lets go listen to what you got in your 95 caprice ex-cop car. Had all mix match ok equipment and RF 2 15s. So listening to his car, it sounded like loud Azz. big time, sure he turned it louder, distored big time and had rattles like no tomarrow. Ya it sounded good.
I didn't insult him or his car just said I can hear some extra rattles going on back there. And ofcourse 2 15'* ported is going to be "louder" than 2 10'* dosen't mean that extra thump sounds good SQ wise. I did like the low extensions that comes with 15'* and ported. Then we got out and watched ihis trunk flex. whoop-de-doo. As long as he likes it. When we go back inside we got on to performance, he thinks he'll whoop me big time. I agreed that he would and we should put some money on it.
Only a v6 huh?
Some people are so closed minded, mine is better than yours period. Bigger is not always better either. take girls for example :P
