air flow and baffle question

I have 2 6x9 JBL on an Alpine 200 watts and a sub pionner 10" 600 watts with a pheonix gold x600 and the 6x9 are in the rear, should I put baffles on my 6x9 to avoid to damage them from the sub bass ?

And also, would it be good to make a 4" hole between the 2 6x9 to allow the air to flow from the trunk to the interior of the car ?

Thanks for any input

damage to the speakers might not be a major concearn, but the sub could definatly cause them to distort... so using some kind of baffle to isolate them is definatly a good idea IMO...

try this; Unplug your 6x9's and play your subs as you normally would. Observe the 6x9's cone to see how much movement there is when the bass is pumping. If there is a significant amount of movement, then baffles are probably a good idea. What I've noticed; depending on where and how the sub is placed directly affects the interaction between the rear package shelf mounted speakers and the sub. If the subs are facing the cabin and are firing directly into the cabin, there is little cone movement in the speakers. If they are facing the rear of the trunk or are placed near the back of the trunk, there is much more cone movement. Try it and see. The amount of cone movement is different in every car and type of box used etc..., but it will give you a good idea of how much influence your sub has on those speakers. Depending on your rear deck set up, you may be able to build boxes and attach them from underneath.
