in order to have surround sound you would need to get a surround sound headunit.

well, surround sound is a very specific thing....


however, if you dont mean surround sound like you have in your home theater, then yes, i do know what you mean.

I honestly prefer my stereo without any rear speakers. I have tried several combinations of having speakers in, out, amplified, driven off the headunit, etc... and the config i like the best is to remove the rear speakers.
However, i do have subs that make up my lows, and without subs, 6x9s are a must to produce some of the lower frequencies

My taste has changed some over the years, I have alowasy had rear fill, now I have to have, when kids in car subs off, use a switch to tunr of the remote wire to sub amp, and then some times yo ujust want to relax, no bass, so to me rears are a needed evil.

Nice setup you got there. I love the rear fill but after gaining the confidence of making my own Gauge pod, im planning on bringing the front stage up and making custom tweeter pillar pods

I would do the rear, it will give you a fuller sound. And I dont know what people are talking about, you can still hear behind you and having sound come from back there sounds better then not having any. Just my opinion I guess

when i first started playing with stereos i liked having lots of sound behind me, but the more i played and the more i learned, the more i realized that to my ears the presence of rear speakers USUALLY has a negative impact on SQ and imaging

If you picked a sub that required a smaller sealed box...ie. instead of 1.3 cu ft chose a sub that requires a .3-.5 cubic foot box trunk space wont be an issue.

I would be able to fit a hockey bag in any of my audio set ups.

= .8ft^3

maybe if you want a small box you should consider a 10" sub
