[200q20v] Can we all have 3 pairs of speakers? Was RE: Front Door Speakers ?

How are the rear Bose speakers set up in the sedans? Behind the seat in the
package tray? Do they have speakers in the rear door panels?

The Avants -non-Bose, of course- have a woofer (probably 5 1/4) and seperate
tweeter in the two rear door panels. 

Maybe there was no way to put (larger?) Bose units in the Avant.

Maybe sedan owners should hit the junkyards for Avant rear door panels, and
Avant owners should be looking for front door panels from sedans with Bose.
Then we could all have three pairs of speakers.

Does anyone have a postable photo of a Bose front seat panel?
