my car came with the nicer stereo tweeters on the a pillars and such but only speaker that works is the front passenger footwell speaker is it possible the wires in back of deck are just lose cuz i figure if the rest were blown ude hear it. but its like none of them are hookjed in


allso in terms of upgradeing can 6x9's fit where the old pods in the back are? i was thinking about getting a premere deck and some better footweel spealkers and eiterh nicer 4inch or try and do 6x9's in the back with a 10 inch sub inside a bandpass box would this sound good?

First of all, as far as sound quality is concerned, bandpass boxes are terrible. Fitting 6x9s into the rear deck isn't worth the trouble. The stock hole is a 5.25", and it would be much easier to fit a pair of 6.5"s back there. You'll get almost as much bass, however, you'll get much better sound quality. The kick panel speakers in the front are also 5.25"s. You could replace the fronts with some nice components and mount the tweeters in the pods in the A-pillar. If you're going to get a sub, I wouldn't worry about getting anything larger than a 5.25" in the back. My advice would be to get two sets of components (5.25") and a nice amp. Rewire the entire car as well. A sub and sub-amp will be easy to add to the system too.

www.carmedia1.com has really good prices on car audio. If you're going to put a sub in the back, it isn't worth the time and effort to upgrade to a 6.5" in the rear parcel shelf. I'd just get 2 pairs of nice coax 5.25"s

ON my old e30 I took the rear speakers completely out and left the covers on, so the sub would be able to go right through. Also, the sub's vibration would also override the rear shelf speakers, giving a horribly distorted sound, or none at all. No one hears the back speakers anyway. Your best bet is getting good componets for the front, and 2 10's for the back(what did)

i tried this with the audi but the gas tank is behind the seat and before the trunkand no bass got through so i just put the bazooka tube behind the passenger seat on the floor worekd ok but i figure if the seat is the only thing in the way of the bimmer it wont sound to bad

Well.... I do have 6x9"'s in the back of my car, hehe yes, it was a lot of trouble putting then in the back, but the sound is terrific, in the front you could accomodate easily 6" just like me for the subs, I have a Planet Audio 600 for 4 12" subs. I had a problem, and the problem was that the rear speakers were a lot louder than the front ones, but I've fixed the problem rewiring every speaker in the car.

Have a Nice DAy
