gady i know there is probably a thread on here somewhere with someone with the same problem as me, i have an xf ute and i'm wanting to put 6x9's up back i bought a pair of boxes and they seemed to fit in fine behind the back of my seat until i sat in the seat, and my head was pushed up against the roof, i'm just wondering if anyone has any idea on where to put them? i don't wanna put them in the doors because i have 6.5" splits in the front of the door and it looks like the 6x9's would prevoke my windows from winding down if i put it in the rear of the door at the bottom, also dont want to put them between the seats either as there is a sub there any idea or suggestions will help absoloutely wracking my brains trying to find a solution to my lame yet probably popular problem.
Cheers Paul.

Easy fix - cab extension first, then you will have heaps of room for big speakers. 8-)
Check my gallery or ute build thread for pics of where i put my speakers.

just a thought..... 6x9's, 6.5 splits and a sub....... might be too much noise for the cabin space. If you install heaps of speakers inside a ute, the orchestrial sound will vibrate off all internal barriers of the cabin and sometimes it sounds worse than having just one pair of speakers. I would sell the 6x9's on ebay with the boxes and if the splits are not that good quality spend a good couple of hundred ( say alpines high grade at about $400-$600 from memory) on a new pair and leave it at that with the sub. If you are really keen on the 6x9's I think there is room on the xf's b pillar dressing, or maybe you can shape your boxes to mould into the b pillar covers....... amped ( hopefully) 6x9's right in your ears...... that will send you deaf :?

I had an XH van, I put 6x9 2 ways in the bottom panel in front of the fuel tank.
They were there for base and worked quite well.

12 inch sub and splits are all you need in an XF..

i had a 12 inch sub running 480watts RMS through kenwood amp
and VDO dayton brain vibration Splits running 150watts RMS in the doors..
mounted Tweeters on the dash.. just above the side air con vents

Do yourself a favour and spend up on sound deading and you wont regrat it the door splits will sound awesome and you wnt look back Dynamat rocks..
