Need recommendation on where to install rear tweeter

Hi all, need advice on where to install my tweeters for my rear components. I would like the sound quality to be best up front. It's a 2012 with the 6 speaker system. And here's what I have...
JBL GTO609c- front and rear
JBL 804EZ amplifier
Pioneer AVH4100NEX head unit

I really don't want to drill a big hole in the door panels but I will if I have to. I was thinking about installing them on the headliner facing forward right in front of the rear hatch. Please let me know what you guys have done or think I should do. Thanks a ton!

Need recommendation on where to install rear tweeter

Why don't you just go with rear 6.5 coax? I highly recommend the infinity 6522ix it's what I run and it sounds amazing (with the tweeter boost off and tweeter pointed down not up). they are like the Jbl's but better spec'd. I also have the new 2016 infinity 6x9 components up front

Not really looking for product recommendations, I know it would have been much easier to put coaxials there but I don't like having the tweets that low on the door. Plus the SQ from components is slightly better.

Whatever floats ur boat but I'm telling you its stupid and a lot more effort not to just do direct drop in replacement coax.

Is it stupid? Why, because that's what you did and everyone else should do the same? I'm installing components for a reason, I already tried coaxials there and was not satisfied for several reasons. It's stupid to recommend your setup when that's clearly not what I'm asking.

What brand ? What model? What were the specs? Did the tweeters on the coax have a built in adjustable cross over? Were they angle adjustable? Just curious, maybe you should try a more sensitive / higher quality feature rich coax. Otherwise just cut a whole where the Harmon Kardon system has the tweeters on the rear door and mount yours there.
