    Subaru WRX '06 sitting 6"x9" speakers on rear seat deck, speeker sitting deeper...

    Subaru WRX '06 sitting 6"x9" speakers on rear seat deck, speaker sitting deeper... I don't think Subaru thought well about people wanting to put speakers on the rear

    So my question is, is it going to affect sound in any way?

    Here's a quick sketch on how it's looking:



    Because of a solid metal and my inability to do metal bending I have to have speakers sitting deeper, is it bad? Or does it not matter?

    Thanks guys.

    as long as the front of trhe speaker is sealed from the rear of the speaker (air tight baffle) and the speaker is mounted solidly, you are fine.

    Is the stock size 6x9? I thought it was 6.5. Why would you want a 6x9 in its place?

    Actually there's no speakers in rear deck. "rear" speakers are sitting in rear door panels, which makes them too tiny

    As far as "air tight baffle" that is what I was afraid of, it's not like that. And I need to come up with a way to make it so.

    Are all (2002+) WRX/STi's like that? Or is this design (rear speakers in the doors) just for the newer 06's?

    I don't really know for sure. This is my first Subaru. I might try to fit 5.25"x5.25" like this instead:

    Because my 6"x9" are just too big for rear deck and they aren't gonna work well without much modification and possibly metal bending.

    My advice is to concentrate on the front speakers. Place all of your time and resources into creating a front stage. Many of us eliminate the rear speakers all together

    Will, that's hard too Subaru didn't design the audio portion of the WRX too well. You've got to do a lot of trickery to get anything good in the front doors.

    well, my requirements is unique. I actually concentrate on rear since I hate sound in the front, it bothers me. So at all times when I drive I listen to music/radio with around 20/80 front/rear sound distribution.
