    get splits for the front and coax for the rear (or spend more on better splits for the front and have no rear speakers)

    The dash had to come completely apart to get the deckin and run the power wire for the amp. That goes under the drivers wayyyy up under the dash. Was really hard to find it. But we googled it and found the solution Also I can help you pick out and even sell you some nice equipment. And yes components instead of coaxes

    Id look at some focal speakers personally i like them way better then alpine for sound quality but just my opinion. The performance series like a ps 165 2 way is a pretty good bang for your buck.
