9 speaker hifi system

I have the 9 speaker hifi system. Can someone tell me exactly where they are. I can only find 6 of them. The tweeter and normal speaker in each front door and a normal speaker in each rear door. Where are the other three???

Thanks Berk, I definitely don't have any behind the rear seats on the parcel shelf. I have split fold rear seats.

The standard (base) system isn't available in USA, luckily for you as it's absolute crap! You get hifi as standard.

More speakers and an amp, still not a huge improvement but tolerable.

I went a combination of both BAV Sound and Focal, but the reality is you do need to upgrade your amp if your going down the path of just speak upgrades, from my experience.

BAV Sound have an $500-600 upgrade kit that plugs into your car for a noticable bump in sound
