    How to get the best Image

    Me and my dad and restoring a 71' SS Chevelle. For the front we have a set of kickpanels for 5 1/4"s. They came with some cheap kenwood speakers. For the rear, the stock mounts are for 6x9's. We have no problem with making new mounts for the rears. My dad bought a set of pioneer 3-way 6x9's for the rear, and those wont be used. He's wanting to use the cheap *** kenwood 5 1/4's though.
    What size speakers should I use for the rear to get the best image? 5 1/4"s or 6 1/2"? The fronts will be ran at 65 watts, and so will the rears untill we get a sub, then the rears will be ran at 26 watts fron the deck. I was thinking of getting some CDT coaxils (5 1/4 or 6 1/2) for the rear and maybe 5 1/4 for the front.
    lmk what you think, my dad doesnt want to spend much, but will spend what's needed.

    If you want good imaging, don't put anything in the rear. That's one of the worst things you can do for imaging.

    Is that true? That means it sounds better cheaper and without putting rear speakers?

    live music is played in front of you. the goal of many audiophiles is to re-create the music how it was intended to hear, or originally heard. if you run a rear fill, it takes away from your front stage.

    Imaging is only one aspect of the sound in your car. If all you have is 6X9's and 5.25's running off head unit power (no subs, no amp), then a good set of 6X9's can add a whole lot of midbass and impact to the overall system. Imaging will ****, but that might be better than tinny sound from weasly 5.25's up front and no bass.

    The trick will be to get as much from the 5.25's as possible... the better they sound, the less you'll rely on the rears and the better the imaging will be. Reinforce the kick panels with dampening material. Use a good set of components and a 50-75 watt amp if possible.
