Rear Speakers

We upgraded the rear speakers. I got MB Quarts 6x9 speakers online. When we removed the interior covering we found the whole door was empty and had a lot of space. I really wanted to spend the time to covert this space to some usable storage but that would require cutting the sheet metal and making new interior so we settled on just filling the door with insulation and installing the speakers. We considered using reflectix but it seemed like fiberglass insulation would be more effective given all the space. However behind the speakers we were not going to be able to put insulation in so we found some duct insulation material at home depot. Real easy to work with, R value of 3, and only about $1.20/sq ft. The speakers sound great and the door is definitely solid with that insulation added.
