Thanks DJ...the rear speakers ruin the sound stage. We have it pretty close to perfect for the driver....with the source (vocals and mid bass) sounding like it is in front of you. As an example...you don't attend a live performance and turn your back to the stage.
looks awesome! i know what you mean. didn't know if you were keeping the rears on for any mid range (which, honestly, they're not needed).
i take if you are going for quality over quantity!
Sound Quality was the goal. We tried to put an Eclipse SW9102 in the stock location (250 ounce magnet sub)...missed by a inch or so. They could have done a better rendering on the "Z"...but I didn't ask them to fab that and they didn't charge me for the work or materials.
