    Mount Tweeters below woofer or in the back pillar??????

    Situation:
    i have a 2001 Chevy Tahoe. For the rears, i have Diamond M661a components. the 6.5" woofer fits in the rear doors. the factory stereo had the rear tweeters mounted in the very back rear pillar (near the trunk door). should i mount the tweeters below the woofers (in the back doors) or in the far back rear pillars (where the stock tweeters were).

    a guy at a car stero install place told me to just mount the tweeters below the woofer in the rear door, he said the tweeters HAVE to be near the woofer or the sound will be all messed up. another guy at another car stereo install place says its fine to mount it in the rear, because the stock tweeters were there. where should i mount it??

    another quick question:
    is 75w enough for the Diamond M661a components? the site says they need 100 nominal. im using a JL 450/4 (150 x2 fronts, 75 x2 rears). doesnt JL underate the wattage?

    I would ditch the rear fill myself...having too many "point sources" coming at you ruins a good sound stage.

    Re: Mount Tweeters below woofer or in the back pillar??????

    but then my passengers wont get to enjoy the music .

    having only front left and right speakers in a SUV seems kinda.... lacking. rear speakers cant make the sound that bad can they? if it really messing with my sound that much, ill just turn the rears down a little bit.

    anyways, where should i mount the rear tweeters? bellow the woofer or in the far back rear pillar?
