    get a different amp for your highs. if you plan on running any door speakers to an amp, get new speakers. the ones from the factory are garbage paper products lol. youll blow them, id get a new air of door speaker and a seperate amp for them.

    Yes. Best thing to do is get a component set that will fit and power them with an amp. But new 4x6's with an amp will make a big difference too. @mylows10 ; what can you do for him?

    You fit two L7 15's in your trunk? As for highs, grab a set of pods for your kick panel and run a component set. A decent 150x2 amp on a respectable set will keep up with a loud sub stage. Check out the PHD vendor forum here fur a nice set, too.

    Singer 310 6 phase 2 runs of Monster Cable 1/0 / Exide g78 AGM under hood and XS D3100 in rear
    Plenty of deadener. CCF and fiberglass insulation in doors... thanks to the advice of keep_hope_alive they sound AWESOME! :-)

    Now that you mention it, OP how big is your box, and what is it tuned to? I think pods might be above what he is looking for, but OP that wouldn't be bad. Highly dependent on the drivers you choose though. Some drivers like ported, others small sealed. Same as subwoofers.

    depends on the power he wants to run and 4x6 speakers as well. i's make or buy adapters and run components there instead
