We're going to turn the rear doors into sub boxes (deadening the crap outa them) so these for the rear doors--

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N5 ... 1GR2JZZ5T6

AmpPro connected to the factory radio https://www.crutchfield.com/p_541AP4GM6 ... rface.html

Cory found this amp on Amazon for half price so ordered it..

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B4 ... UTF8&psc=1

Of course I'll be deadening all the doors and putting Fast Rings around all door speakers.

The Saturn Vues had that sort of setup. Midrange 6-1/2 n the front doors. 6-1/2 subs in the back doors. Piezo tweeters in the front windshield posts, just above the dash. Great sound. All powered by the head unit.

Going to sound great.

I'm looking at your sub box door idea and first thing that comes to mind are that those "mini subs" want a sealed enclosure and about 150 watts RMS of power each to be happy. The doors can't be sealed due to the window seal, handles, lock rod and the drain holes. You will never realize their full potential. I imagine you plan on running the amp in this fashion to fit your current plan.
Channels 1 and 2 for the tweeters (dash)
Channels 3 and 4 for the mid range speakers (front doors) These will be mid pass defeating the fact the JL's have a tweeter.
Channels 5 and 6 for the woofers (rear doors) These will be low pass.
The woofers will be underpowered. You will lose rear fill also with this set up.
I just don't want you to have false expectations.

I was just looking for rich rendition of jazz, blues, and classical. I wasn't into thump it. It was more than good for me at the volumes I wanted.

If you need louder, go for it. There was a shop in Ft. Lauderdale whose motto was, "If you can't thump it, dump it!"

I'll be perfectly honest with you here....I'm no audiophile (although the guy I'm working with from here is) we talked several options.....I don't want a sub box under the rear seat....I also don't need "thumping" bass....I want good clean sound....doesn't have to blow anyone out of the truck....he's considering other speaker options for the rear doors.

Thanks for your reply.

Consider Focal for clean sound. I've been messing with the brand for a bit now and they are fantastic. The dash speakers in your truck can run on head unit power while you amp the door speakers. The dash will keep up unless your going for some serious high power in the doors. The front channels of amp will play more evenly with the rears by keeping the ohm loads the same. You could consider components in the front door in sizes 6.5 or 6x9, they make both. You would be surprised at the vocals the dash adds to a set of components. I would have kept mine except the dash speakers are about 2 ohm so I was worried about that load on my aftermarket head unit. The factory head unit is designed for this load on those channels. The rest of my system is rather loud so they needed replaced in my case. Also go for silk dome tweeters for a richer sound. "Hard" tweeters can be harsh.
