    basically it looks like ill be needing to install some lind of plate to mount them in. anyone done this before?
    this car came from the factory with just front speakers
    the hole is approx 9" top to bottom

    Weight is a BIG concern! the struts arent that strong

    for what purpose?

    If you have a front stage and want something in the hatch area for a more full sound, you could possibly put an 8" in there.

    You might be better off posting exact dimensions of the whole opening. Also, what exactly are you trying to do? Do you want subs or do you want a rear fill?

    rear fill
    i think a pair of 8" may be too heavy... whats a 4ohm model thats not too heavy...

    prabably will be running a small sub in the trunk somewhere too

    You might be better off going with 6.5" coaxials in the rear lid. Besides, 8's don't look like they'll fit from the shape of the opening.

    i sorta figured i wouldnt want coaxials for the rear, just a midrange, wouldnt having tweeters in the rear fuck up the imaging, its supposed to be just fill i thought.

    if your concern is weight, and you have a front stage, and you already plan on a sub. Dont put anything back there. A midrange wont do anything for you when its physicaly behind a woofer.

    Rear fill is just that, to fill the sound. You won't do anything with the imaging. Remember, fill is played at a lower gain then the fronts. If you want, you could run just woofers (6.5").
