Default rear speakers and subwoofers

i plan to purchase a scorpio VLx. i have planned to install the following JBL system in my car:
FRONT: GT5- 650C
REAR: GT5- 963 (6" X 9" OVALS 210 W)
SUB-WOOFER: GT5-12 (12" 1100 W, IN BOX)
AMPLIFIER: GTO 4060 (4 CHANNEL AMP)

i wont purchase a head unit because i am pretty satisfied with the unit mahindra provides with USB slots and CD receiver.

i have heard there are no slots in the rear door (2nd row) for the speakers. the rear speakers are fitted on to the tailgate! i wish to place the rear speakers somewhere near the 2nd row seats for maximum effect. also, since mine is the 8 seater variant, i plan to install the subwoofer behind the 3rd row seats. so do you recommend me to cut a slot in the door panel for the speakers or is there any alternative arrangement?

Why not the GTO607C in the front and the GTO 937 at the rear?
Sub and amp choice is ok.

I don't think the stock Scorpio HU has the required preouts. It certainly does not have a any sub level adjuster etc in it. When i tried to get a sub installed in a friend's scorpio SLX, all the shops here recommended a HU change.

what you need is an amp with speker level inputs and a level control. Many amps have this. see if you can find a Blau PA 275.
