Great idea Josh!

This will make it easier for me to decide on a sub setup down the road.

which postition gives you the most sound without rattling?
I have had 2 10s back firing as well as 1 12 both up firing and back firing. The upward firing produced considerably more rattles than the other 2 setups.

So far the rattles are not bad. I was not happy with the excess amount of voice sound from the rear. I was using an inline converter with the stock speakers connected. I am kidding myself in thinking I am not gonna spend 5k like the last car. Unhappy I tore into the doors. I was expecting to have to do a lot of Jerry rigging but not the case. I took the stock Clarion speakers and gutted them. I cut the basket and cone from the outer ring. My MB Quart 5.25 fit perfectly on the ring. I screwed them on with large nuts to grab the ring. I left plug in place which lined up perfectly with the terminals. I soldered the terminals to the inside of the plug. Now the unit attaches with stock fasteners and plugs right to the harness. I could not fit my big tweeters in the mirror pods easily so I left the stock tweets for another day. The non Blose system has 2 Ohm front speakers so it works fine up front. I removed the rears and those suckers are 32 Ohm, 32 why the **** they are 32 Ohm I have no clue. So the now modified 6 inch MB Quarts will wait for another day. It may be awhile because with the rear speakers disconnected using only the subs and the MB Quarts in the doors it sounds great.

I built my subs into the pockets formed by the Luggage Finisher (hump where the rear speakers sit) and the Rear Strut. I finished up last evening and want to thank Toykilla his Head Unit install. I think I had the center console off three times! Sounds great and I'm pretty much happy with the final result.
