Need help with my sound stage, to rear fill or not to rear fill?
Well I now have an inifinity 6.5" component set in my fronts courtesy of my friends spare set =) However, now that I have these hooked up Im kinda having a dilema. Basically my rear deck 5 1/4" drivers are overpowering my front 6.5" door speakers. The rear speakers are Kenwood 2-ways but Im only using the driver right now. I have my crossover set up with my 4-channel amp so I have 2 channels for high and 2 for mid. The 6.5 and the 5 1/4 are run off the mid channels and the tweets are run off the high channel. Before I hooked up the 5 1/4's in the rear deck I had a nice sound with good channel seperation, but it wasn't quite loud enough on the mids. So... my question is, should I just say screw it on the rear fill? I think the problem with the rears is that they are too close together producing almost a mono tone to my ears. Also, now that I have the rears hooked up I can't get my mid range frequency to sound right. Is there anyway I could put the 5 1/4 in the dash (they will fit right in) or should I just take them out all together. If you can help me out it'd be great.
