a plank & spacer ring/s should help. ask your installer about it.

@ Sathya - There is. In my Optra I got the rear speakers mounted on slope like thingys. But, there is some drilling involved.

you can install the speakers in the doors, but depends on the car.

to install speaker most car manufacturer give space which has 5.25 and 6.5 inch as standard but if you want to install a 6x9 some car does come with that size but if not with that size one can use a MDF wooden spacer to mount them...

Hmm. Dicky door. I have seen few installations like this but how good and reliable is this?
Can this be done in Indica?

Um, before we go off on a tangent, why don't we wait for Sathya to enlighten us on which car he's talking about first?

Sathya
here is a pic of how i have installed it in my old car
its done with an MDF spacer ring on the sides of the booth.

i have found this arrangement very practical since it requires no MDF rear parcel tray and hence gives you a lot more bootspace(meaning you can stack up luggage over the level of the seat)

Also you need not worry about spoiling the speaker wire connections while loading luggage close to it

Also as the speaker is loaded within the car walls this acts like a kind of enclosed box itself.(this is my NOOB opinion dunno what the gurus wud think about it)

u can use the 5 th door in the rear to accomadate the Rear Speakers.
But it might need to pierce the rear door protectors to place the speakers.
But the bass is not rich.Parcel Tray installation is good idea for GetZ.

@Magma's suggestion is very practical.

An alternative is to mount an MDF box above the wheel well projection - the speakers face the boot. Bass would be a factor of the size of the speaker you use. You could even think of using 6x9s there.
