hardly call that overboard :)
4" upfront and 6x9 with 6" in the rear doors will sound like shit, and drag your sound stage back...
think about it, if you're at a concert, you want the band infront of you, not behind you.

imo id budget more on bigger fronts with pods, than waste money on 6x9's and 6" in the back... use the existing factory rears

Ditto what tomee said, more is not better!!!, spend your majority of budget on a nice set off 6 or 6.5" splits in pods in your front doors, run on an amp, and a decent head unit.. then a sub if your that way inclined.... Ive got this set up in my mx and it [email protected]#kn pumps....

Have a look on caa.com for info re. car audio before you go and do something you'll regret..

and tommee if your at a concert you shoudl actually notice the sound you hear isnt from infront anyways its from behind the sound rebounds off the walls behind you and comes back..so technically if your lookign for a concert atmosphere your lookign for sound from behind *lol* ohh and my car never came with stock rears *lol* they'd be replaced already...

Been to many a concert metallica, foo fighters, blink 182, taste of chaos..all of them if you notice have a reverb type effect nothign to do with sound engineering its the structure of the concert theatres thats why you'll always notice an echo liek effct due to the sound hitting the back wall, and playign back..thats why the best concerts are the open air concerts liek BDO and stuff at the music bowl etc..because the sound is not reflected...I know many people think all the sound comes from the front but I can assure you the percentages are something like 60-40 or there abouts...my brothers studying soudn engineering so he does know a bit about it..im not claiming to be an expert not in the slightest but its soemthing I've noticed and something that has been discussed before in great detail...

is that serious?? a GE MX6 has four 6X8 's ???
i thought they were 5X7 or something [shizzle] like that.
5x7 is the standard GE speakers (I replaced mine about 6 months ago) but from what the salesman said when replacing mine the 6x8's simply have different bolting holes & fit in the same holes (however this did come from a salesman so take this info as you will)
