1991 MR2 Speaker Sizes

Does anybody know how big you can go on the rear speakers on a 1991 MR2? The regular size is 3 1/2 but the front door speakers were 4 inches but it took 6 1/2.

Thanks

My advice: Don't put rear speakers in. The MR2 doesn't need rear fill and putting something back there will mess up the acoustics. A good set of 6.5" components in the front will give you all you need. I also recommend relocating the tweeters to the kick panel for better imaging. A single 8-10" sub will satisfy most people for bass.

If you really do want to put something back there, you're just limited by how much you want to cut.

Lies!

With proper tuning and adjustment rear fill can make all the difference! The MR2 comes with factory woofers (6.5") behind the driver seat and under the little shelf. Diamond makes a kick as 6.5" woofer that fits perfectly, replace them both and you definatley get a little bass. Its not gonna be something that pounds your chest or rattles the doors, but it will add quite a bit of low end.

Not all models had this subwoofer behind the seats on the bottom shelf. The one's on the rear panels will accept up to 4" speakers. bu like ghosty said unnecessary. The front speakers will accept up to 6 1/2 no problem. I would recommend a good pair of components and tweeters in the front and you will be set. EMSpowered.com has a combo deal right now, they are very well known in the Mr2 community. probably more information then you needed lol
