I think you'll notice a difference. But if I were you I'd ditch the rears and bridge two channels of that amp for the front. Then you'll be like "Oh my God"...LOL

I would agree with the above, but to really hear a diff ditch the factory HU. Trust me, Ive been where you are and after getting an aftermarkey HU its night and day.

- Bingo.

That's the first thing I would recommend. I know they make adapters for factory head units to work with after market equipment, but in many cases they are just band aids and not a cure. Coaxes with an after market head unit might sound better than the factory radio with expensive component speakers. You need to get over it and buy an aftermarket unit.

You would notice a difference but probably not what you want.IMO You can keep the rears or ditch them.IMO You need to use the money you where going to spend on the comps and either get a new HU or get a RF 3sixty to keep factory. I would get the HU.IMO

You can get a 3sixty if you search around for a decent price. Now if you go trying to by a 3sixty.2 then that another story. You can get a palm pilot used for cheap. So you could do this set-up for about 400.00 or so pretty easy. There are a lot of awsome HU that are cheaper that would give you everything that you need and more for less.
