Since I'm in the market, and I don't want to start a new thread, Can I get any 4" speakers for the rear, or like crutchfield lists, do they have to be the 4"T? I wanna put Infinity Components so I guess my question is, will any 4" speaker fit in that black nokia case that the stock ones are in?

552i I think, but I dont remember. 525i. Something with two fives and a two. The components are up front. I have coax in back. As for the sound, great mids+highs. Only thing thats missing in them is bass, but you cant really expect that out of of a 5 or 4. Couple them with a sub and its phenomnial.

thanks dude, yeah I have a sub that fills the bass out nicely for my tastes but now i wanna redo the internals...the speakers tend to fuzz up and distort and since most of my sound is outta the back i thought i&#39;d start there, then move to the kick panels...would you say its worth doing components in the back? or just the front?

I say just front. I actually have my rear speakers set to almost nothing. I prefer all my sound coming from the front.

I have the same infiniti kappa 552s in the rear...they are 4inches and they alone sound so much better than the Nokia POSs. Definitely get the infinity&#39;s. However, I came across the problem that only two of the screw holes matched up, but they still fit quite snuggly. They sound amazing still, so its worth it. If you want overall SQ, do everything at one time. If you are like me and like a lot of knock in the back with bass, start with the front components. A lot of bass would kill the SQ coming from the back anyway in the long run, so those shouldn&#39; t be the biggest priority. The front ones are the ones going right to your ears, so I would suggest going for the fronts first if not all at once.
