    Default speaker selection help

    I am currently planning on upgrading the speakers in my explorer. I know virtually nothing about car audio so I am not sure which direction to go. I almost certain I want to install the 5250's up front but I dont know about the rear speakers? Should components be installed in the back as well or would a 2-way speaker suffice. I want quality sound which is the reason for the front speaker selection but I didnt know if not using components in the back would make a noticable difference. Any advice anyone could give me would really be appreciated.

    Thanks

    i personally dont like to use speakers in the rear. it tends to pull the image to the back. if your going to do it just put mids there, no tweeters.

    If having a tweeter in the rear will pull the imaging to the back which speaker would you recommend for the rear. Right now I am thinking of installing the MMc5250's up front, an Infinity Reference 7541 amp, and I still do not know what to use in the rear. The two way speakers have obviously have tweeter in them (I know as much as an 8 year old haha) so what would be a choice for the rear?

    The tweeter wont matter because itll be point to the rear anyway or at least across the car. Since tweet's frequencies are so directional, they wont have enough intensity to pull the stage to the rear any.

    For the best SQ, front speakers only are the way to go. However if you want to have speakers in the rear for passengers or just want the added sound of 4 speakers, thats ok.

    As for which speaker, just get whichever Momo coaxial that will fit in the stock mounting locations.
