    Is it worth replacing 4" speakers

    Ive ripped out all of my old monsoon garbage (and replaced), except I left the stock rear 4" speakers in tact. I have new 6.5 midwoofers in the sail pannels and dont want to put coaxials there.

    Should I bother replacing the 4" with infinitys? just to have the rear channel work? or is there a better solution?

    I dont think replacing the 4" ers in would be a pain, I just wasnt sure if they would even sound ok. I was thinking about using 5x7 or something bigger, which would require some cutting

    that's what i did, hence PITA b/c you have to cut it all out, but leave enough plastic to anchor the speaker to; ps, mount them from BEHIND

    What size was a good fit for this area? 5x7 6x8?

    if you're running a subwoofer you could keep the 4 inchers and just get a crossover of some sort, even something as simple as bass blockers and pick a speaker with a good tweeter/supertweeter for higher mghz. now if you're not running a sub i think it'd be worth it to upgrade the 4s to something with more mid range capability.

    up to you -- unless the fronts are nicely amped coaxials or components -- many (the majority?) prefer the "rear fill" that audiophiles will advise against.

    that looks great! are they mounted to MDF then anchored to the panel?

    I put some 5x7's in mine and just ripped out all the plastic except a little bit to keep it anchored with

    Yes. I know I could have filled in those holes to make it look a little cleaner, but I always have the grills on anyway. No big deal.
