Default Factory 4 Point stereo in a Kingcab?

I was just doing some online browsing and noticed that this brochure photos seems to show rear speakers mounted on the back wall of the cabin.

Does anyone have these in their truck? Really interested in finding out details so I can replicate it. New Zealand kingcabs came with no options beyond A/C and Power Steering (which is strange as the single and double cabs had heaps of options), so I won't have any luck finding them here.

The speaker bracket threaded holes should be in the back wall on the king cab, all you would need to do is get the brackets and grilles. The speakers that will mount in the brackets most likely will be a real shallow speaker.

Awesome, thanks guys. I'll have to have a look at replicating the setup with things some shallow mount speakers and similar brackets. I drive with my leg against the door, so I can only really hear one speaker at the moment, I've been looking for ways to increase the sound without having speaker boxes floating around on the rear floor.

I'm planning on sound deadening the cab at some point, but it hasn't happened yet.

After adding them to my own truck, I wouldn't advise it. It is nearly impossible to get a decent speaker in the bracket and still allow the rear seats to fold down. Even if you don't care about that (I didn't think I would), it is flat out impossible to get a speaker to sound good back there. The bracket has only enough material to hold the speaker in place, and gives the speaker zero separation front to back. This means you cannot get a reasonable amount of midbass out of anything you put back there. My advise would be to save your money and put better speakers up front, and perhaps even amplify them if you are looking for better sound. You can also add insulation (as Nissan used nearly none at all) and make a PROFOUND difference without even changing speakers. Honestly, I'd advise starting there for the "bang for buck" factor. Then no matter what speakers you add, they will sound better.

Yeah? That's pretty interesting. I'm not in a rush to make changes, so I'll take that on board. I'm currently sorting out an under seat sub, I can wait until that's hooked up before making up my mind. I'm not really looking for bass (from rear speakers), just more of a "full" sound than I get from the front left corner of the car (RHD). I recently changed to component speakers with Terrano (pathfinder) A-pillar tweeters, which helped too.

I also have some old school clarion speakers which are a fairly shallow mount, might try these first.

I recently installed component speakers in the front doors, with the tweeters up high, it made a big difference and sounds really good.

ill second that the biggest imropvement you can do for sound in our trucks is to keep the outside sound and heat OUT! Insulate your rig and you wont regret it at all. I did it all with the best military grade stuff in about 3-4 hours and only cost me about 250-300. I did the doors too, which is absolutely a must, but uses a fair bit.

Do you have a link for what you used? I might be able to get the same thing in NZ, or sent from Brissy.
