I have a question about speaker placement in a 94' 4runner.  If you have one or ever work on them it would be greatly appreciated for your input.  I read that the kickpanels are probably the best place to put your speakers  but in the 4 runner the factory placement of the speakers they have them in the dash about knee high to the left and under the steering wheel, facing the driver and passenger for the . Now I don't mind making or relocating the speakers to the kick panels, but how much of a difference  would it make in sound imaging, staging...etc...

also, because suv's  have large airspace, im kinda having trouble with getting my bass too fill the whole cabin, ( i forgot the terminology ) I know it's coming from the back  in other words instead of having it fill the bass filling the whole cabin.

thanks in advance

Freaky,
If you care about sound quality you should notice an improvement with the move to kicks. How large? Who knows. It depends on everything down to the particular pair of speakers you buy.
To the bass issue. You can trick your ears into thinking the bass is coming from the front a few ways.
1) Try to match (approach) the level of your bass with your midbass.
2) Tweak your crossover point. Bass will become less directional if your crossover point is low and the slope high. Shoot for a xo point at or below 80hz. If at 80hz or higher use a 18 or 24db slope.
