Your best bet with non-folding seats is probably porting through the rear deck if you want as loud as possible

Try experimenting with the location and direction that you have the box aiming. I'm not sure how you have them positioned now, but putting them against the seats and firing forward isn't always the loudest.

I would fire them backwards and remove any sound deadening, carpet, or foam between the seat and the brace wall and even try removing the rear speakers to allow for the wave to enter into the cabin

The same worked for me in my last car as well... any way of opening up the rear deck to allow sound through should provide an increase in volume and clarity.

Yea, I'm going to be having the same dilema with my car, I just bought new 6x9's so i'm hoping i wont have to rip them buggers out.. mayb i'll go without the 6x9's and add them into my fibreglass trunk assembly so when i pop the trunk, i can get some highs in there too.. and just suffise of the components up front.
