    rear fill 5x7 question

    Hey, I still didn't finish my system install, but i do want rear fill just because ive always liked the way adding rear fill sounds, plus for rear passengers. But i dont want to amp the rears, I have spots for 5x7 speakers, What would sound good and not distort with just deck power? Because i dont want to get speakers in the rear and then they get distorted at high volumes and totally destroy my sound. I dont even need co-ax's, Just mid bass would be fine back there. What should i go with?

    No you need a decent coax to not ruin your sound, having only a mid in back would mess things up IMO. Also you can use your fader at high volumes. How do those AQ's sound???

    I'd spend around $100 and get a Boston, Rainbow, ID or something along those lines. The higher the sensitivity the better since your running deck power.

    Above 89db at 1w/1m or 91-92db at 2.83v 1w/1m. 40w power handling is fine.

    Something like these look fine

    Something like this cheap full range driver might work for $40, but I'd just run a coax for rear fill.

    Re: rear fill 5x7 question

    I would reccomend some infinity reference rears, they make some VERY nice sounding 5x7 coaxs which would probably run you around 50-60 bucks. Theyre also 2 ohm, which means theyll get louder off just deck power, assuming youre amping the comps you have up front. Also have 93db sensitivity

    Anyone have any input they would like to add to that? Doesn't 2 ohm sound dirtier than 4 ohms?

    Ive never heard that theory? My infinity rears sound just as good as my comps up front. They actually have alot more midrange to them which is a good thing too. They also have an adjustable +0/+3db silk dome tweeter which sounds very clear and not harsh at all. They should be at your local best buy, thats where i got mine. Go listen to em, dont pay retail though

    Re: rear fill 5x7 question

    I have the infinity reference speakers. The fronts are amped at 50 watts each which sounds incredibly clean the rears are being played straight form the speaker connections. They are 2.65 ohms, which I didn't pay attention to, but they never distort. After breaking them in they lose a little bit of punch. I bought one pair from crutchfield and got robbed, the other pair I bought from amazon **** near half price.

    Don't just sit there looking at it , GET IT DONE !
