What year do you have? Mine will be exactly the same as any 92-95 with the 5 1/4 component speakers.

I've got 6.5 components in my 01 ssei. Also got 6.5 componets in the rear deck 6x9 cutouts too.

Why didn't you mount the tweeter adjacent to the woofer Taylor? It would fit in the 6x9 opening. Are those sealed from the trunk so bass doesn't push them?

Well the tweets are mounted there because it was easy cause the Boston Pro 6.5 comps came with couple different mounting plates and one is to mount it with the 6.5'* frame, great for those with no tweeter hole. Don't really care about how the rears sound since I have them fadded almost off. I personally dont car for rear fill AS LONG as the front sound stage is good. I have no problem with rear fill on cars with out a full system, those speakers are needed to get am acceptable sound stage.

You can take it than that that the rears are not sealed form the trunk. However though my subs are firing forward and are more forward than the 6x9 openings, so my trunk isn't really getting loaded with SPL so the rear speakers aren't being pushed too much.

Ah, i find i don't like having only bass in the back, rear fill is nice, especially for the backround vocals or guitar etc, that are much much wider on the soundstage.

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

Ah yes, people say, what just two tens? I say yup. Go JL.

Sound quality will get you more volume then brute force.

I know LOTS about imaging, my Hi Fi gear is perfect, and where my heart lies. Tou should come to MN sometime taylor, we could go for days about audio gear.... Atleast come in march! That'* a neat thing for the JL amp on the fronts as well. I don't follow new stuff in car audio too much.

SQ is the way to go, ya I ONLY have 2 TENS. lol

Don't know if I'm going in March, still tossing the idea around with the girl friend, see how are Reno trip goes. Are you coming to Bonneville fest in Rockford. I'll be there for sure, only 30 min from my house, How convient. Don't have a problem giving stereo test drives to who ever wants one. Performance test drives too, I WIll have my "list" done by then. Ya know I need to spend as much in performance as my strereo is worth. Than I might submit my car to a magazine or too. Probably call the article "GM sleepier, Import guys, lets listen to him." lol

Yeah definetly some cool stuff you can do with that. The subtle things like the raised JL in the back that aren't gaudy, but still look relatively stock are nice. dual 10" JL'* unite! lol, I hope to be there this summer.
