Speakers in hatch and a lot of dynamat

By auto manufacturer standards I would count this as a 20 speaker system.
2 tweeters in the dash, 2 sets of 3-way 6X9's and 1 pair of 6.5" co-axial in the hatch, and 2 10" subwoofers All Polk Audio, except for the subs which are kickers.

Hatch closed:

Hatch open:


Now when I the hatch and sit there to get dressed for a ride, I can have good tunes. It actually added to the sound in the rear, quite a bit.

Wow- you did this fast. So you gave up on the side panels and went for the hatch- I had thought about suggesting this, but feared that the hatch location would just rattle something terrible. Great Job!

Where and how much Dynamat was used? I have been thinking about using Dynamat on the entire spare tire well and over the area just before the rear seat to try to quite the noise- over some road services it can get a pretty good roar back there.

THANKS!!! -

I pretty much put Dynamat all over the metal under the plastic and anywhere I could get my hand on the outer skin of the hatch. I probalby used maybe 1.5 sheets of a bulk pack. No rattles and the lift is pretty heavy now. If you tap on the outside with your hand, it is solid. I am gonna do the doors, the top, and the entire inside of the cargo area with what I still have left. It's gonna be one solid Compass.

K&N Intake will be here Tuesday and installed either that night or Wednesday. Only thing left is the lift kit and some bigger tires Until I find something else to do to it

Why did you choose to put the speakers so close to the bottom edge? Would they not fit closer to center? Or did you just not like them there?

Magnet depth and I kinda liked them there better. I probably should have went up a little bit higher, but I'm pretty happy with the outcome

I am curious as to why you mounted them so low in the hatch... why not center them?

The main reason was magnet depth and cutting of the metal in the hatch. Also support for the speakers was a consideration. I am considering painting the grills black, I think that would make them look less noticebale.
