    Sounds good, although 8in sub provides some bass a 10in would be better

    Ive replaced the factory 6x9 door speakers with some JBL GT7-96
    I would like to put a pair in the back too.
    and with a sub would be nice

    I see in your pictures they look like 6x9s ...Are those 6x9s in the rear deck too?
    Because every one says there only 6.5" speakers in the rear deck?
    Please help clarify the mystery...
    Did you have to cut that hole for the 8" Sub or is it factory?
    I think with a 4 channel amp wired mono to the sub and stereo to a pair of rear deck speakers would sound Awesome.Please respond !!

    So for my 2015 I have following

    Door panels (2) 6x9
    Front dash (3) 3.5in
    Rear deck (2) 6.5in and (1) 8in sub w/o enclosure
    (2) Rockford amps (1) for door, dash and rear deck and (1) for sub and both amps are tied to LC7i audio controller

    They did not have to cut anything for the Sub but could not fit an enclosure like originally hoped so it is open air flow. Decent amount of bass but there are some frequencies it just can't handle

    Hope this helps

    * Quite a task. You must have the B.A. 6 Speaker set-up as I. You should be aware that the B.A. System is a 2 OHM impedance, not 4 Ohms. The 2 Ohm provides more power but the separation is not 'stereo'; mostly monoaural. I was a radio tech for some time (trouble shooter). There is a great deal to contend with. I researched for over six months and decided to leave the system alone. Naturally, if you are inclined, be prepared to make a huge amount of changes. If you have sirius, that poses another issue as all electronics are tied into the steering wheel. There are far too many variables and the cost is not worth the effort.

    Know what you're getting into before jumping the gun.
