I've been searching around on this section. I can't find where anyone has tried to mount 6½" subs in the rear doors. Here is my thought:

I found some nice 6½ woofers - Specifications: Power Handling: 70 watts RMS/140 watts max *VCdia: 1-1/2" *Impedance: 4 ohms *Re: 3.6 ohms *Frequency range: 38-800 Hz *Fs: 38 Hz *SPL: 83 dB 1W/1m *Vas: .41 cu.ft. *Qms: 2.65 *Qes: .47 *Qts: .40 *Xmax 13 mm *Dimensions: A: 7", B: 5-1/2", C: 3-5/8"

If the mounting depth isn't too much on these, I thought I might be able to baffle them in the rear door location. I'd also Dynamat the door. I'd set them on a LP filter off of a 4 channel amp.

I prefer my sound stage up front anyway, and do not like anything but lows coming from behind me. I like the way a good 6½ woofer setup sounds. I’m just wondering if anyone has fit them in the rear doors.

The depth on those might be a deal breaker unless you are OK with windows that won't roll down all the way. Is this for an early d-cab or an 05+?

It is an '03. I'll be the pioneer of the project I guess. I'll just pull the door panel and measure my depth. Maybe if it's a bit shallow, I can compensate with an MDF spacer. If it looks as if it will clear, I’ll just keep the panel off for a week until the woofers come in (so I don't have to remove it twice).

No matter what you do to to make it sound clean those door pannels/windows/switches are going to rattle like crazy, but if you turn the music up loud enough it should not be a problem. Why dont you want to put them behind the back seat? room?

I also have a 03 D-cab and in the same position. There is room to mount subs behind the rear seats. You have to get a custom box made or make it yourself. They say you can only put 8" behind the rear seats. Right now me and my brother in-law are working on mounting 10" behind the seats. Got a couple ideas up my sleeve right now. I keep everyone posted on what we come up with. If you do go with the 6 1/2" in the doors dynomat the hell out of it. Its going to be like a baby rattle back there and personally that would annoy the hell out of me. :D

Mini-subs in the rear can sound great.

In a different vehicle, I did the same and added fiberglass matting and epoxy to the metal door skins to reduce resonances and to keep the bass tight. It was nearly a perfectly sealed enclosure except for where air may be able to excape via the window interface.

if you do decide to that, make sure you buy component speakers for the front because you'll need mids and highs to balance everything out.
