I've also been trying to come up with a rear speaker plan for my wagon (4-door). I'm taking a little different approach by using surface mount speakers for the rear (Pioneer TS-X200). I have front kick panel speakers (3-way) as well, and I plan to put a Retrosound subwoofer under the front seat to boost up the bass a little. I have a Retrosound Model 1 Stereo, which seems to work quite well. Even though I still have a long way to go finishing the paint, etc, I did hook up the speakers to try them out. With just the fronts and rears (no sub) it sounds pretty good. One of the reasons I like the surface mount rears, is that I can flip them around with the gate open to provide some tunes if I'm at a show or something. Here is a picture of them sitting in the back of my wagon.
After trying for years using different speakers mounted in boxes we talked to a stereo guy and he suggested to remove the rear speakers and concentrate the sound around the front only. We have a dual dash speaker and amplified home made kickpanel speakers, works a lot better now. good day.
