Unhappy Help wth Rear 6X9 install!!

I'm having a hard time getting my aftermarket 6x9 speakers to fit in the rear of my '00 V6 Coupe. It seems Honda put the trunk torsion bars right underneath the speakers. My new speakers have a greater depth than the stocks and is hitting the bars. For those of you who have replaced your speaker, how do I get it to fit??? please help. Thx.

u should gotten spacers witht he speakers, if not then try ur local circuit city or best buy for some spacers, check the roadshop first maybe they can get u some free ones, i work for circuit city and we give away those things all day. but it wont effect the stock grill, i have infinity kappa's 6x9's in my trunk, it fits fine with a spacer everything mounts perfect, if u need more audio help just pm me.

about how much space between the frame of the speaker and the car frame do you have? Measure that distance and build a simple spacer out of MDF.. the spacers from circuit city are probably made by Metra and they usually come in 1inch depth sizes.. which might be too much to fit the stock grills over.

grab the bars and bend em
also, put friction tape aroud them
OR do what i'm doing and completely remove the suckas for some bass ports
with decent comps in the front, high-passed at 110 and the sub low-passed at 110, i dont need rears
besides, soundstaging comes from front anyway
and i rarely have someone sitting in the back anyway
if u dont drive with your rear seats down, ur gonna need to cool off your amp

also, the bass in my trunk distorts the 6x9's anyways, so its either build a baffle or take em out

Damn Lou... you have your front stage components high passed that high?? What's the F3(Fs) on those midwoofers!? I think you couldve lowered it at least in the 80ish range and brought up more upfront midbass... lemme know

I think 80 is too low, but thats from my integra days where I was closer to the rear speakers and pretty close to the trunk... i had comps x'd at 100...and the rears at like 90 with the sub in the middle (but I dont listen to a lot of rap or anythign like that..)..

As long as the upfront midwoofer can handle the lowest frequency in it's range without audible distortion.. I say go that low. I'm crossed @ 40hz upfront and 40hz for my sub. Upfront bass amazes everyone who sits in the car without subwoofer playing... a dinky 6.5 wont play 60hz and below with 90db authority but it's presence is felt to a point of providing a much more full range sound when crossed quite low.
