I have replaced my front speakers with Infinity's. Great improvement.

While fiddeling I pulled one of the rears. They have the same rear cover as the fronts. I there really a mosture hazard? Has anyone had a rear "leak"?

I assume that a longer travel speaker would give better bass. It also opens up other options.

Thanks,
Shan

It should be bone dry back there unless you drive into a lake. :roll: :D

You are limited by a plastic duct on the passenger side when choosing the magnet size of the speaker. I machined a circular rim that brings my rear speakers forward a half inch. Putting speakers with a high frequency response back there is a total waste of effort. They fire into the back of the seats. :shock: Putting dedicated woofers back there with a crossover will give you a buzz. Have fun. :lol:

"Round is good". Long travel is better. :wink:

Be careful with your Insight, Don't want to read your new address as "Kip's" Lake (renamed in honor of a notable oops :!: :twisted:)

Shan:

FYI

The duct Kip references above is the Intake cooling duct for the IMA system. DO NOT modify it any way that could reduce its function else you will shorten IMA battery life :!:

HTH! :)

Thanks for your concern John. We blasted a new road two years ago. Thoughts of the old road still haunt my memory. :shock:
