    rear tweeter location

    i know a lot of ppl here are adamantly opposed to rear fill . however, my friends landcruiser has no rear fill, and riding in the back pisses me off. i feel like i'm missing out in the music experience that the jerk who took shotgun from me, is getting. therefore, i'm putting rear fill in my car, so everyone can be happy . plus i already bought the gear for it.
    now i have a wagon, with tweets goin into the dash firing up into the windshield and the rear speakers are in the back cabin/trunk area by the rear window (firing up). they are 6x9"s that are being replaced by 6.5" components. so my question is, where and how should i mount the tweeters?
    my install guy advised me to mount them in the rear pillar behind the passenger's head.
    whatchya'll think?

    It really doesn't make a difference, granted its overkill. The idea is to keep the tweet as close to the midrange as possible. I would recommend putting them very close to each other. Ideally you would have them in kicks, but if not just make sure they are turned down quite a bit. If executed correctly you won't be able to hear the stage being pulled back, and the rear passengers really won't be able to as well, will just fill in gaps left by the fronts (That is why comps are overkill as rear fill). They will be turned down extremely low...
