Not sure about the wagon, but my Delivery has two access panels about 6"x12".
I took the panels out and made a template to fit and hold 6x9 speakers there.

Here's a couple photos of my Delivery.
The speakers are just behind the seats
near the front of the "cargo" area.
Hope this helps some.

Wagon Rear Speakers

victorniner,
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.

Regards,
John

I saw an installation on CT, where the owner placed the speakers under the rear seat and he fabricated a mesh grille across the whole opening.
I have tried to find it on CT, but no luck.

Cheers, Des

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.
