Callyman , that looks a good system :-)
What I'm really looking to do is to put speaker upgrades in behind the originals . Ill fit my amp & sub in the boot for bass .

I also have full alpine system in the van, alpine stuff in cally.. Also have PA, vintage hifi and various studio monitors pretty fussy about the sound coming together tight.. even if the gear is costly it has to time together or the sound is not great. This can get costly to fix.

its hard to find a budget 6.5 which does the damage.. once road noise is high... so you need something like the hertz 100 RMS cones mark uses. The main problem in the calibra though is the kick from the door speakers is swirling around the footwells and has lack of focus. I got round this in the van by installing the mids above the windscreen.

in the calibra it was fixed by a single 6 by 9 vibe which just fits in the stuff holder in centre console. they can take 100 watts steady with the kick frequencies. the kick range stay right in the centre of the car and the sound is tight club sound now.

Disconnect the tweeter from this middle speaker as the doors will handle that. the door and mid speakers may phase clash but you can tune this by filtering kicks out from the door speakers..

its not hard to fit 6x9`s in the rear behind the OE grills....and a sub in the back lol

sony tweeters in my old cally

Image

6x9`s in the rear...i made some better brackets for the top...and filled the gap behind with sub box wadding to quieten things down like road noise.

Why didn't you install them using 3 of 4 standard holes, like on pic below (stolen fm cc.com)?
