Lowers or Passenger

If you were looking to add speakers to the lowers or upgrade the passenger speakers in an Ultra which do you get the best bang for your buck,if all equipment was equal.

Lowers. You will get more out of them than speakers that are behind you going down the road.

Not trying to be a smart ass cause I was thinking the same thing, but the lowers are below you and by the engine and road...

They are still in front of you with a slight angle up toward you. They will cut through the road and engine noise a lot easier than speakers behind you.
