The deck simply does not have enough power to drive the door speakers and produce quality sound. I made my own speaker mount out of 3/4" PVC board. The mounts from tacotunes are just way too expensive if you ask me. Making my own cost me like $20 I think. It didn't take a lot of time either. I made them for the front and rear.
Where did you buy the PVC board from?

3/4 x 8 x 8?

8 inches or 8 feet? If 8 feet, I've got a project that will be perfect for.

8 feet long. I think I bought a 6 footer to do the four doors. They have a bunch of different lengths and widths. It's pretty easy to cut and drill. It had a wood grain on one side IIRC.

I'm with this guy. your ears aren't back there. and even if you had passengers sitting back there, it wouldn't matter. but if you want to waste some money to fill up those blank holes, do it.

if you were to spend money on your stereo in steps, I would recommend it in this sequence:

1. stereo
2. front speakers and sound deadening material
3. amp for fronts and possibly sub
4. subwoofer

that is just my opinion. I have a dcsb, and I will not be installing new speakers in the rear doors when I upgrade

looks sharp!

I would install new speakers anywhere you want to make it sound good. Adding rear will fill up the space behind you nicely. Good thing you don't have a double cab otherwise you would have one good set up front and a crappy one in back.

The '14 Access cab is the same, no door speakers in the back! Time to start cutting and install 6.5 alpines.

Rear speakers do make a difference. If everything was wired correctly, with the right amt of juice to power the door speakers than sound quality will be improved. Got a double that had stock head unit but amps, woofers and door speakers all around and the quality was decent. Once I swapped in the 2014 navi unit the quality was so much better. I adjust the woofers down and the infinitys in the rear doors actually so much clearer and the bass was really there compared to the original stock head unit.

Next on the list is a better line out converter.

Might sound good but looks awful. Breaks the lines of the door trim; style does not match, sticks out, eye sore, etc... I'm a pro audio guy and though I agree that there should be rear fill it could be executed much better. I'd seriously consider making a custom trim panel with gray grill cloth that matches the shape of the panel. It will take some time and patience but it will improves the aesthetics 10 fold.

Personally, In a car imagining and time alignment are your 2 best friends if you know how to set your sound stage, Sadly not a single SQ competition setup uses rear fill but allot of Home audio and Pro audio( thats set up correctly ) can utilize rear fill adequately depending on the focal point. For our trucks, rear fill is really and i mean really a massive last resort option, even more so with Xcab.

Spend the money and upgrade them front speakers, quality speakers that can take power. Bridge a class AB amp And feed those front speakers the power they deserve. You won't ever Wonder or think about rear fill!

Now if you want to use your rear swing doors to include a sub per side thats a different story
