I have a jvc h\u 6 inch speakers in the doors and 6x9's in the shelf and it just distorts at pretty medium levels and it has no bass at all, i broke the wire connector bit of the 6x9s a little but it was only the bit where you slide the thing onto so i just wrapped the wire around it and duct taped it... i dont know if that has anything to do with it.
My suggestion is try using electrical tape and make sure you wires are not making connection with other wires or any kind of contact with the chasis. That can sometimes mess with your sound quality and can cause your speakers to act up.

You MAY be driving it too hard. If you are sending large bass pulses like from a drum machine to this, it may be overdriven. Check if the clip light is coming on. If it is coming on, back down the volume. If you can't live with the volume at a level that doesn't clip, then you need to get a bigger speaker. This is a 12 inch which is really not suitable for running drums through. Good for vocals and some instruments. When you run up to clipping level the gain is cut in the electronics to protect the unit and that results in a distortion or fuzzie sounds.
If your shelf system is not producing sufficient clean audio power you'll get distortion, which can kill a speaker faster than excessive clean power. Muffling is something else altogether. Are the tweeters working?
The symptom you are describing is exactly what is known as a "BLOWN" speaker or the voice coil has "shorted", this is caused from the volume being up to loud, heating up the voice coil and frying it, in the future if the bass/sound is distorted then turn the volume down just enough to stop the distortion and this will save the speaker.
As far as getting a replacement speaker, you will have to contact the manufacture to get a replacement.
Good Luck !
Sure, it's OK as long as the new 6X9's are the same impedance as the door speakers.
Unless there are already wires and cutouts for rear shelf speakers, the installation will be pretty involved. And while I'm not sure of the Holden product, it's sister versions, Chevy Lumina and Omega, does not have such cutouts or wiring.
Wires going into the door interior for window controls, locks, and speakers will all be in a bundle and go from the vehicle frame into the door through a flexible rubber connector with grommets on both sides. You'll need to run your wires from the disconnected door speakers back through the same grommets to avoid pinching and damaging them. After you get them back into the vehicle interior, you can run them under the trim or carpet to the trunk area under the rear shelf. If you have never done such work before, I recommend you get someone who has to help you. You'll need to make an appropriately sized cutout to mount the 6X9's. And depending on the material, you may need some kind of reinforcement and/or spacers. Also, look out for anything underneath the trunk lid that may come into contact with the speakers. There's usually 2 metal rods than span the width of the trunk and run almost directly under the shelf. They will have to clear the speakers in order for the trunk to open and close properly.
It's more work than a simple speaker exchange with a good pair of aftermarket speakers. And the benefit is minimal. A really good set of 5 1/4, 6 1/2, or 6 3/4 Alpines, Bostons, or Infinitys will sound better than a mediocre set of 6X9's any day and you don't have to cut everything up to install them in most door openings.
you should install 2 8 or 10 inch wooffer on the back seat install mid range and tweeter its not very expensive it gonna sound great with that trunk you can do anything you whant 6x9 its sound like crap even the expensive one
I guess the question you need to ask yourself then is how much money are you willing to spend? If you are looking for a sound quality system then it WILL cost a lot more than a DB all out BASS system. The system that you have picked out isn't a bad one but as with all systems this in only half the story. You will need to have it installed well to get the best from the speakers that you have chosen too. If you want to have the stealth look in the cabin then it's pretty simple, but you will not get the best sound quality or should I say imaging as the OEM locations usually are no good for this.
I would suggest that even though you keep things looking stealthy in the cabin apply sound deadening to the doors as Asian cars are generally quite tinny unlike German cars. This will make a big difference in terms of overall sound quality & help keep out the road noise so you can hear every little detail of your personalised system.
