Default Alternative place for rear speakers?

HI All

Just putting in some Titan rear draws and they cover most of my 6 inch speakers in the rear folding doors. Anyone got some crafty ideas/pictures of where they have mounted theirs?

Cheers!

Phil

6" midrange speakers are designed to work in a large volume area, so putting them in a sealed speaker box is not ideal. The volume of a door is pretty good, so I would mount them in your rear cabin doors.

Thanks, they are not in a sealed box but rather in the rear doors. I would try and put them in the back doors but I am not sure? I would have to cut the metal holes...

I mentioned the boxes, as it is an option for you. You could make boxes to mount them on a cargo barrier or on the front of the drawers. However, it will effect how they sound, as they are designed to operate in large air volume. Having said that, it could be done with some experimenting. The rear doors is a good spot, but as you say you need to do some cutting.

You will find that most audio lovers will have their midrange speakers, which is what a 6" speaker is, only in the front of the vehicle. This is the best position for them, not behind you. If you look at some big dollar car audio systems, this is how many of them are designed.
