It kind of acts like a mini box for the rear speakers, if you take them out they will lose their low end response, at least thats what ive heard [img]smile.gif[/img]

Rear Speaker Foam Cup Myths and Facts


Pay particular attention to Hack's comments in that thread.

When I replaced my rears, the beefier Alpines were never going to fit in those cups, so they stayed off.

Hope that helps!

So, what did you do?

I just took the cups off of mine this weekend. I figured, why hide the Eclipse Point Source 6X9's since the look kinda cool with the clear crossover network mounted to the side of the magnet housing.

The speakers look cool, but the overall effect is that the trunk looks more cluttered, especially since my entry-level (if that) gear is all up against the back of the seat (an 8 inch powered sub in a rectangular, ported enclosure centered and strapped on the "shelf" with a small amp mounted to the seat-back on one side and a distrubution block mounted to the seat back on the other side.)

I'll give it a few days, but I may put the foam back on.

Glad I could help.

I just came back to this thread today. I guess time is scarce when you give yourself 6 weeks to completely gut a house, rebuild it, and then move into it!
