Time alignment Front only ok?

Hello
Time allignment front only or do you need rears also?
I have played a bit with time allignment in the past but some recommendations would be helpfull. I am considering a front only time allignment to expand my soundstage. Is this ok or do I really need to include the rears (mounted low in door) . What about the sub?
The plan is for separatefront midbass (low in door) and tweeter (sail or A pilar) time alignment with electronic crossovers
thanks

Rears are unneccesary. It's nice to be able to include the sub in with the time alignment if possible.

That is exactly the problem - the woofer is significantly farther away than the front end. The general process is to delay the entire front end so that the bass arrives at the same time. I guess technically you're not actually using time delay on the sub, but you are including it in the overall tuning.

Not if you are using a coincident source driver. If not, then yes.
