Rear speakers in 04 Crew Cab

I have a 04 F250 Crew Cab. The rear speakers are sitting right behind the back of the seat and don't put out a lot of sound. I just put Dynamat in the front doors and the quality of the sound is incredible (much better than before). Now the front speakers are overpowering the rears. I have seen people talking about installing speakers in the door where the ashtray is. Are there any other ways to put these in?

Re: Rear speakers in 04 Crew Cab

I installed Infinity Reference 5x7's in my rear doors They have an aimable tweeter. They are plenty powerful.

Re: Rear speakers in 04 Crew Cab

Can you hear them better that the stock speakers? I have heard that Infinity's are too "bright" - do you agree?

Re: Rear speakers in 04 Crew Cab

I found Eurekaboy's write up on how he did this. He cut a hole in the bottom of the rear door panel and the door itself. Then he put in a speaker with a grill. http://www.eurekaboy.com/f250/doorspeaker.htm

I have Alpine S's in the front and like the way they sound. I found these http://www.alpine-usa.com/US-en/prod...model=SPS-13C2 that have a nice looking grill. Could I install these without them getting damaged with normal use of the truck? Or are there other speakers with more protective grill?

Re: Rear speakers in 04 Crew Cab

Speakers are a personal choice I recommend folks go to a good store and listen to their kind of music in the sound room before purchasing. I was surprised that the lower Reference series sounded better than their high line Kappa's to me. There was also a 300 dollar set of Focal's that sounded like pooh. The 1,200 dollar Focals did rock though. I have a full system so I can't say exactly. I have Infinity 6.5" components in the front doors with tweets on the dash and regular Reference speakers inthe rear door. Everything is driven by the amps 200 watt 4 channel which is 50 watts a piece. I think they are very clear without being to bright. Of course I have hearing damage from loud environments. I bought mine 3 years ago so the exact model has changed but these are close. I noticed the ref rear here is listed at 2 ohms That would sound twice as loud vs a stock 4 ohm speaker. Not sure if it would over work the stock radio or not...

Re: Rear speakers in 04 Crew Cab

I don't like jicky looking grills but the door mounted speakers would sound better than the pillar. I might even try to mount the speaker in the door itself and make holes or cut lines like factory does with a router for the sound to come through. It would be more hidden and durable.
