6x9 rear speakers install help

i did some searching around but i could not find a good write up. i know it should be some what simple but i know im going to have to buy a amp.

my main concern is that what do i do with the amp that is already there (im guessing the small black box in the trunk is the amp)? also i cant find component 6x9's only 2 way coaxils. would this work? or would it blow out the tweeters in the 6x9 sinse there is no crossover?

Re: 6x9 rear speakers install help

You're thinking about the acoustic feedback system (box in the trunk going to the stock speakers)


Something that is better for the audio section. Try searching in there for what you're looking for.


Otherwise - I'll be honest; The stock system sounds great as it is!!! I have everything aftermarket- 6.5's up front, new tweeters, crossover/splitter in the doors, 6x9's in the back all with new wire and a double din headunit. I still think the stock system was far superior in sound.

If you need help by passing it just search radio and find my thread with all the wiring diagrams.

Keep the rear speakers stock man, I'm telling you...
Get top of the line fancyness for the front, a good amp and sub, but leave the back alone

Re: 6x9 rear speakers install help

The main problem with getting a sub and amp for the rear is the fact that the AFBS system will perceive the extra bass as coming from the rear speakers (It won't know there's a sub) and will cut out ALL the low frequencies from the rear speakers, basically rendering them nearly useless. I took my box out and am just using some high quality components up front (Alpine Type S 5.25" coaxials, running in parallel with some Alpine tweeters in the stock locations.) Crisp, clear highs, amazing midrange, and plenty of bass. I think it sounds better than ANY stock system I've heard (including that Bose crap they used in the RSX.) Just use high quality speakers and a nice deck and amp, You'll be golden.

Re: 6x9 rear speakers install help

This is all assuming your rear speakers aren't toast. mine were completly rotted out where the foam was.

Re: 6x9 rear speakers install help

the 6x9 in back are somewhat limited with their depth due to the bar that helps the trunk close. i bypassed the factory amp and put 6.5 components in the back instead with an adapter plate. i originally was installing kicker 6x9 but these ended up being too deep.
