To all Stealthbox users, here's a rear fill idea...

I've been going through some of the stealthbox related posts, and most people are concerned w/ the loss of the midbass/midrange in the rear deck for the purpose of "rear fill".

Now, people (including myself) have argued that rear fill is really unnecessary, because all we really want is a great front stage. Some people don't buy that argument, and are still concerned for their ocassional backseat passenger who will have to listen to bass and nothing else...

So here's my question/idea. For those of you w/ the HK system, the stealthboxes replace the round 6 1/2" woofers, but not the 6x9 original subs. Since the stealths replace these subs functionally, they become rather useless. So why not replace these speakers w/ a 2 or 3 way 6x9 speaker? This way stealthbox users can have some sort of midbass/midrange drivers in the rear...

For those of us who didn't opt for the HK system, I've read that while we don't have the actual speaker pods for the 6x9 subs, we DO have the template in the rear deck. All an installer would need to do is punch out the template and fabricate some speaker pods...

Has anyone done this? Am I smoking crack? Would this appease all of you looking for rear fill?
