im looking to do a little upgrading to the audio,been looking around and noticing a alot of people saying the rear speakers are useless and just do a good component up front and a sub.wondering has anyone done this and if they like it better.
I ran front speakers only in the Monte Carlo due to a bad amplifier for about a year before I sold it. Only downside I really noticed was decreased volume compared to when I had all 4. I'm not sure I would have done it by choice, but it was fine by me.
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
The front is what creates the better sound stage. If your just looking for a simple speaker sway to increase volume, I would do all 4 speakers, but if your really getting into it, focus on the front stage. This being said, I would still replace the 6x9's from stock, but the focus on better equipment should be up front. I personally don't like NOTHING for rear speakers

i upgraded my fronts and amped them. I left the rear speaker stock and left them connected to the factory amp. I am fine with leaving the stock 6x9s, but i am going to upgrade them eventually just because i have a 4 channel amp powering my fronts so i have an extra 2 channels..
If i was you, i would first do the fronts and see what it sounds like. It could save you time and money if you are satisfied with just the fronts being upgraded.
