    to rear fill or not to rear fill

    i am planning to put a set of 6.5" comps in custom kick panels in my 91 suburban and i was wondering if it would be worth it to have rear speakers too, normally i know its not that necesary but with such a large car it might be good to have them, also if it is a good idea then should i get 6.5" comps, 6.5" coaxes, or 6"x9"s

    Re: to rear fill or not to rear fill

    don't do it. All the highs should come from in front of you. It's annoying to have high freq. behind you. ok for subs, you can't tell where low bass is coming from. 2 mids and 2 tweets + bass is all you need. If your without a subwoofer. and have factory 6.5 in the rear , look for a couple free air 6.5 subs. . I think JL make 6.5w0s or kenwood . crutchfie;d has the kenwoods for like 30 each i think. ANd that would sound good, you would need a crossover though.

    Re: to rear fill or not to rear fill

    normally i say no to rear fill... but in such a big car im inclined to say yes. the jl's are a good idea, but dont run them too high... im not sayin that they coulndt, simply that it'll be more transparent.

    You Definetly need rear fill in that car. In the back seat the passenger wouldn't be able to hear anything. Components wouldn't be a bad idea, just make sure it is faded a little bit foward and it should sound fine with minimal imaging screwed up.

    Re: to rear fill or not to rear fill

    i also just remember that Cadence makes 8" coaxes, would these be better than the 6.5" comps for the rear fill?

    Re: to rear fill or not to rear fill

    I'm serious bro it's annoying to have highs coming from behind you. One set of 6.5 components givin enough power is enough to fill any car. As long as there in the right place. . Or even better get a 3 way component set. If you were at a concert, the sound would all be coming from infront. Should be same in your car. Take the money you were gonna spend on rears and buy 1 set high end components and a 100-150x2 amp. If your not going to use an amp and are just replacing factory speakers then forget what i said and get some rear coaxs.

    Re: to rear fill or not to rear fill

    Being such a big vehicle, I would definately get some rear fill. Even if you just get a set of 6.5' 2ways off the head unit your passengers will thank you. If you went with fronts only, could you mount them across the ceiling without screwing up the stage? I know I've seen these ceiling mount speaker packs in jcwhitney, that just gave me the idea.

    Re: to rear fill or not to rear fill

    just get some factory sized coaxils and run them off the headunit and run a pair of components up front. try disconnecting the rear speakers run your components and if feel the need for rear fill just buy some half-way decent coaxils put them in and run them off your headunit.

    Re: to rear fill or not to rear fill

    yeah, DO NOT get components in the rear. Get soem nice 6.5" coaxials...just to fill in sound a lil in the rear of that large vehicle. A great choice would be the CDT cl-6x's on thezeb.com for like $45. Great speakers...wht u need to fill in back there. peace

    Re: to rear fill or not to rear fill

    Midrange/midbass in the rear (no tweet and playing a really narrow passband) and components up front. That is if you must have fill. Think about this, you only had two speakers filling your living room with sound for a lond time and that is a lot bigger space and you were probably running less power doing it. Why would your car, even a Suburban, be harder to fill with sound?

    Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
