Has anyone without the Premium sound package added speakers to their rear hatch? My girls can barely hear any music when they are in the rear facing seats, so I want to put some in there. I'm hoping the wiring is already there for them!
Thinking about this, it would be nice if these hatch speakers were included with the jump seats. You really can't hear music back there.
If you do not have the Sound Package, is that speaker on the rear liftgate just empty? And if so, is there no shielding, etc in there?
I'n asking Bc thinking of trying to install Fastrak transponder in that grab handle under the liftgate speaker--Autopilot cars have windshields that totally block transponder signals and Tesla Tech Support said the rear glass is the only glass that works.
Chris TX upthread is probably our local resident expert on tolltags here. Maybe he can comment if he has done any tests in the rear window glass.
In a recent rear laser shifter and rear DVR cam installation exercise, I found there are actually wires run for those speakers even if you don't have the HF sound package. I was going to run some new ones, but I'll try to utilize the factory ones.
That is interesting. Any pics to help get an idea of their location? Let us know how your install goes.
Personally, I wondered if speakers were in there and now that I know there are not (and Artsi's contact doesn't feel they would be worthwhile), I wonder about repurposing that with an LED strip tied to the light on the hatch. I will be adding two LED strips (the ones Artsi mentions from SuperBrightLeds in one of the trunk lighting threads) under the parcel shelf mounts soon.
You could put fans in like I did so the rear facing seats have some ventilation.Sorry I can't offer any information or help but I'm still following this thread and hope you continue to share what you learn. Maybe someday, I'll get around to putting speakers in. Sure would be nice at the drive-in.
