My experience has not been good on using the fader. If moved 2-3 points to the front, it is bearable, but move it 6-7 points to the front and the rears completely loose the mids and the vocals dip.

fronts: some bronze coloured pioneer 4"
rear: JBL 936

The rears and the sub are powered by JBL 1004.

the jbl 936's must be a lot more sensitive than your fronts, and hence the huge mismatch.
EDIT : and to make it more imbalanced , they're driven by an amp.

some unknown pios ( are you sure they're originals ?) I dont think its worth amping them, even if you did , not much of a difference. A better option would be to get a pair of decent 4" comps . kicker/illusion make them. that should help restore the front/rear balance

Sorry I just saw this.

If you have a pair of high quality 4" coaxial speakers then it is a great idea to amplify them, provided you cut them off at least at 130-150 Hz using the HPF on the amplifier.

I have JBL 4'' GT0 427 & GTO 937 at rear. I also have a 10'' bass tube & JBL 60.2 Amp. My head unit is Pio 7950. I am planning to remove my sub to another car. I am looking for clean sounding system with tight bass.

so here are my options.

1 : Getting a 4 channel amp like JBL 60.4 connect the front & rears.
2 : Using JBL 60.2 to power there front 4'' & leave rear GT0 937
3 : Connecting speakers directly to head unit (no amps)

What are best amp 4 channel in 5-8k range?
