    not to mention there will be a slight improvement in clarity because all speakers will color the sound to some degree. So the fewer speakers you have producing the same frequency ranges, the fewer variations of the same sound you have, and so in the absence of random reinforcements of the signal, tuning becomes a little easier and the music will be made more clear.

    For example, think about when you're listening to a choir sing. If they're good, they're all singing the same notes, but it sounds loud and seems to be filling the room coming from everywhere. When they all shut up and let the soloist do his/her thing, you can tell right where the sound is coming from and clear as a bell.

    There are other reasons for the clarity as well... delays, resonances, etc... both very complex things to figure out inside a car.

    Hope that all makes as much sense outside my head as it did inside it.
    that sounded good enough for me.

    also; if you feel you need rear speakers, if you make your mounting rings out of 1/2" mdf that'll give you some extra clearance right there.

    can you fit the mids in the side panel? that may sound better then having them on the rear deck

    i'm kind of curious why i don't see more C-pillar pods. That'd be pretty slick.

    I hope you aren't catagorizing all Pioneers to be "horrible".... or you're just talking about the stock ones that came with your car.

    I've got Pioneer HU, pair of 6x9's, pair of 6 1/2's, 2 12" subs, amp and it bumps.

    Okay, this is all great info.

    So if i wanted to separate which sounds are coming from where, how many different speakers can I have to do that? From what I understand there's the sub, the mid-woofer, and the tweeter.

    If I have components up front (mid-woofer and tweeter) and sub in the trunk, what fills in the sound gap from the rear? I'm trying to get a multi-directional, clear and separating sound.

    volume

    actually thats a trade off. you can always run speakers back there and just turn them on when you have back seat passengers?

    subs are supposed to be omnidirectional, meaning you shouldn't really know where its comming from, it just fills the room with base
