    Default rear speaker suggestions

    I finished a restroration on a 71 442 convertible. I didn't want to hack up any of the new interior panels. I have after market kick panel with Polk db651 since they were the only ones that would fit due to the depth and can be changed back to stock panel with a few screws. I fitted a Kenwood KDC-X794 in my 8 track housing. I pre ran RCA jacks from the head unit to the truck as well as the remote wire and power feed to the battery. I just picked up a Polk PA D5000.5 and a db1212 sub that I plan on mounting in the trunk. I was wondering if anyone would have any suggestions on a pair of 4ohm bookself speakers that I could use to put on the rear seat. The other alternative would be to use 6x9 with enclosures. I want to go this route so I can remove the rear speakers if I go to a car show and store in the trunk. My first choice would be the bookself if they were small enough.

    Thanks
    Dave

    Nice!

    Your car should have factory holes for 6X9's behind the back seat. You mount the speakers pointing backwards towards the area for the convertible top.

    Pics please... those 442 Cutlasses are one of my favorite cars. Hopefully you have the 455 version?

    I will post some pics of the car when I get back home Sunday. Viking bllue convertible with 455 dual gate and W-25 induction hood. It was a 5 year body off restoration on a numbers matching car.

    I was looking for a better spot then behind the seats forward the top well. I think they would be muffled back there.
