Default New rear speakers hit the body panel

99 vert..replaced rear speakers but they are a little too deep and hit the panel in the well by 1/2 inch. They sound much better..way more bass..any probs you see with this. The fronts dropped right in and the whole thing sounds much better..next is replacing the head unit.

A 1/2" is a ton though. Adding a spacer may cause issues with the trim panel going back on. Food for thought.

Yup..plus added insulation tape on both sides and they just hit the grills..but that shouldnt affect them..once i balanced them with the fronts and deadened the area around and in the cavity..and poly fill..they sound ok

Yeah..its not the best system..3 band parametric eq only goes so far..i put it all in because i couldnt stand the st ock bose system any more...im used to middle high end audio..ill just tear it all out and put in something real..for now im going to upgrade the suspension..have to keep upgrading or i get bored...over the winter ill start buying better stuff..hell..might as well just copy what you did..cant see doing any better..
And you know exactly how it will all work out..why reinvent the wheel..

Meh...my stuff is good...but not the best. I have learned that my sub choice was a poor one. I love the W7, but NOT in a corvette. It just doesn't work. Corvette needs shallow subs...13TW5's...or 2-3 shallow 10-12s with TONS of power. It's a rough cabin to tune around. I'm just happy that my failures can help others not make the same mistakes I have.
