    Wait a sec, am I dumb? Replace front or rear speakers?

    I have a 94 grand cherokee, with the infinity gold system...Well, I just got some Infinity Reference speakers, but only 1 pair.

    I was wondering, should I replace the front or rear speakers? I planned on replacing the rear, as it sounds like more bass comes from there. But really, I hear the front speakers more, as im sitting in well, the front of the vehicle.

    keep in mind, distortion will kill the speaker(s). the purpose for speakers is definately not "bass" but mids/highs/some lows?. subwoofer is for bass

    and heres another vote for fronts.

    Distortion doesn't kill speakers
    x2

    And if anyone says that too little power will also kill speakers, they're getting e-slapped
