BP5 speaker install / sub under elec seats?

Hey guys,

Looking to do an easy upgrade to my existing speakers - I went a bought a these 5.25 JVCs for $35 but they seem pretty rubbish so maybe I'll just use them in the back doors and get some 6" components for the front.. 

Any suggestions of mounting.. I'm thinking I'd jigsaw some mdf mounts with 6" wide hole and screw them into the metal door frame shell?

 

Also any suggestions of speakers that are good bang for buck maybe around the $100 - 150 mark?

 

 

Also I'd be keen to get a little extra punch from a sub somewhere but don't know if one can be fit under the electric seats?

Alternatively I saw a pic of someone plonking one in above the space saver in the boot... Ideas here?

Ok swt seems the passenger seat has less room with a computer or something there so guess I'll look into mounting above space saver..

Have standard kenwood headeck so haven't thought about how to power it either yet

 

Not sure what Type R components are but with stock HU maybe these http://drivingsound.co.nz/product/fusion-pf-cm650-6in-component- or if I'm better off with better brand a no crossover unit: speakers/ http://drivingsound.co.nz/product/alpine-spj-161cs-6inch-250watts-components/ would be enough for it to power

Use a line converter to get a signal for the amp http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-stereos/other/auction-1189515191.htm  

 

The jvc's will be fine for the back doors. Components are better suited up front 

 

Edit: These are type r's btw (will require spacers) http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-stereos/speakers/other/auction-1192447145.htm

Thanks for tips guys... I don't think I can justify getting Type R's running directly from kenwood headeck but I'm leaning onward n up to these now http://drivingsound.co.nz/product/infinity-reference-6500cx-6-5inch-component-speakers/ and throwing JVCs into the back doors..

Read some good reviews about running them through factory thin wiring

 

Maybe if that's still not enough I'll keep pushing further...

Had them in my old 3rd gen. While they sounded alright coming off the headunit, hooking them up to a decent amp made them soooooo much better.  On a stock Hu I reckon you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between those and some $50 fusion ones. 

 

Whats this computer under the passenger seat? You'll probably find it's for some Jap nav or something that can be ripped out anyway.

Hmm ok so an upgrade to those http://drivingsound.co.nz/product/fusion-pf-cm650-6in-component-speakers/ would still be best bang for $ vs the 5.25 JVCs?

 

Haven't looked into what the computer would be for but I do have the jap nav unit in my car which I'm guna biff and also radar cruise control which I use daily

 

These fusions will do the job perfectly for the front doors running off the factory Kenwood unit. In fact I might get some for myself for the outback.

Ive actually got one of those fusion ones that nearly brand new that i keep meaning to sell if you're in auckland. Only problem is that I broke the remote gain thing but was using my HU ot control bass anyway. I bought it for some extra low in my mx5, it was ok but because ive removed the carpet and its such a light car everything just rattles so it sounds a bit crap.

Those fusions look a pretty sweet deal...I actually chucked some cheap coaxes in the front doors of my BH as the OEM speakers were toast and I (e.g. my wife) didn't want to spend any money on speakers and components are more expensive...tempted to grab those fusions and do it properly.

I'm keen on one of those subs, though at the moment my 6.5s are making the doors rattle so will see how I go deadening the doors before I add more bass!
