No, it is truth. It'* not your speakers, it'* how your ears hear the sound. Rear sound is only rear fill, that is it.
Go into any SQ comp car. You will see most only have a nice set of 3-way front components(or more sometimes), and a sub. That is it. And if they do have rear speakers, they are generally either the stockers, or something basic, definately nothing expensive. Why would you focus your sound behind you? When you go to a concert, do you stand with your back to the stage, or do you face it?
BTW, turn off your caps.
