Nothing back there works really well for me. It's cheap, too.

I don't have any rear speakers in my car. I removed the factory ones to vent the bass into the cabin better and even if I had left them in they wouldn't have been connected to anything. Why would I want to have a mediocre or even a good speaker color the sound of my excellent front speakers? The money I didn't spend on the rear speakers could be better used on other parts of the system. I can assure you that I don't miss having rear speakers at all. I've never had an upgraded system where I had erar speakers, in fact.

This guy thinks just like me :) But he knows a lot more about car audio than me too.

as far as the mb quart they are ok if im thinking of the right model but nothing spectacular. Also when you talk about rear fill generally theses guys are right generally rear fill doesnt do a bunch i did my install in stages and added my rears last and even though it does add some as far as imaging its not totally necessary. So theres another honest opinion from another car auidio nut.

thanks,

Actually it might add ambiance and make the car sound like a bigger space, (but only if there is delay put on the rear channels) but it really can only hurt the front image and add peakiness to the over all frequency response because of differing path lengths.

I agree, NO rear speakers what so ever is the best bet. If you want ambience get a processor or a deck with an onboard processor.
