If you are going to be driving the car most of the time i think you should get front comps, a sub and a 4 channel amp. Spending 10k on 6x9 will be a waste IMO

If i were him, i'd add the 6x9 or something at the back.
He's not putting a sub remember. ( 6x9 would give the added thump)

Thanks DerAlte for explaining it. I am still learning every little bit of car audio in our forum, i had read that any joints contributes to signal loss.
So the converter even though its designed to convert speaker outs to RCA outs it appeared to me as another joint of connection which could cause signal loss.

Even while getting done concealed wiring for home audio the electrician by mistake cut the wire(he was not aware it was routed for audio) to which my Interior designer was not happy. That was another occasion where I came to know that any joints that come in way as far as possible are strictly no no for audio.

In general, yes, one has to avoid joints as far as possible. But that is because we tend to be careless about how a joint is made - 9 times out of 10 one would twist the joint and tape it up. That itself does not harm anything, but over a period of time such joints weaken and oxidize, leading to a higher resistance connection over which the signal drops.

However, a line output convertor cannot be classified as a 'joint', since on both sides the connections are made properly. On one side is the RCA connector, and on the other side one is supposed to either solder or crimp the joint.

The existing tray is just a thin plastic one. So i'd have to install a wooden tray behind and then cut it.

My decision to go for a 6x9 is only because i wont get any low end bass from any components i put in the rear. Hence I don't really have an option. The reason I am avoiding a SUB is because it will increase the cost of the full system too much. If i'd put a sub then the cost goes up by a good 20k! (10K for monoblock & 10K for Sub).

A monoblock is certainly not necessary to power the SUB, you can bridge a amplifier like the 1004 which gives 300 RMS @ 4 ohms.It will do the job pretty well and skip the rear speakers.You can look at subs from JBL/POLK/GZ.
