Has anyone here installed mid-woofers in the rear doors and also tried coaxials in the same spot. Myabe it's just me but I would like to have some treble coming from back there. My subs and front doors cover the bass pretty well and I just feel more range from the back will really fill it in.

Rear door speakers are neither supposed to have much low end extention nor high end detail. They are simply there to enhance the overall sound image. If you want you can simply leave your stock speakers in there. If you want to amp a set, then just get some coaxes, they are cheaper and still wont put out much sound if you tune the amp right.

I agree, They do need to be more rounded, mine are mid-woofers and they sound so muffled.

Maybe 800hz to 10khz range...I am thinking

Nah, I would say anywhere from 150-2k hz. Either way, have you looked at parts express.com for a decent set of mids? Find a 6.5" set, does not have to be expensive, just reproduce the sound, and handle the power. I would still just use stock speakers if it were me though.

What do you have as your mids/subs/amps?

2007 Rockford Fosgate T400-4 400 Watt 4-Channel Amplifier runs the MB Quart PCE 216 Premium Series 6-1/2" Components up front and the MB Quart RCE 164 REFERENCE SERIES 6.5" Mid woofers in the rear doors.

The Subs are a pair of Rockford F 8" P2's wired in a 2 ohm load driven by a TREO Engineering amp..I had to turn the gain down to less than half, it is so powerful and the bass was overpowering

Any speakers I get will run down to 150hz but I will likely cut it off around 800to 1khz since my ear just does not like a lot of mid and the PCE's up front can make up for any of that.

Maybe I will do an octave band measurement next time I need a meter for work. I am going to do an analysis tomorrow to see my equivalent sound level exposure over a 15 minute drive to some AC/DC.

I put Kappa 6.5 coax in the back doors. They seem to do the job without too much bass. They are just driven from my Alpine HU.
