    i used the door kit which i had laying around. gives you 12sq. ft for about $80 retail. just enough to do the 2 front doors with a little left over. i need to get some more for the rear wall so when i put my stealthbox in i don't have any issues.

    it is definitely an improvement especially in the high end over the stockers. i would not recommend powering them with the factory radio. an aftermarket one will be ok but to really get your money's worth out of them you will need to run them on an amp. i will hopefully be installing my 75w x 4 alpine amp this weekend. then they will really sing.
