It's not *too* bad, the speakers are easy to get to and there's loads of room in the boot.

I had an Alpine 7893 Audiocontrol EQL processor...and a DLS Ultimate A5 amplifier.

I disconnected all the rear speakers and fitted a set of DLS UP5 components up front - mids in the doors in the stock locations, and tweets mounted on the dash, aimed at the rear view mirror...and an IDMAX 12D4 in a 1.3cuft sealed box in the boot too.

Sounded nice - stage was good, and the tweets did sparkle, although they were a bit bright, so I ran them attenuated by 3dB and used the EQ to trim off the really high stuff. The only problem was a lack of midbass from the UP5s, and the only way to get around this (the A5 only outputs 85w RMS a side, tops) was to increase the range of the sub, so it was playing from about 100Hz down, which isn't ideal.
