    $99 on Amazon and totally worth it. You can really tell just off the stock head unit. Still doing aftermarket head unit so should improve further.

    Also have the Kicker 6x9 and 6.5 DS series still to go.

    Easy to pry off clips and plug and play on speakers. Did not have to take side panels off like in some YouTube videos

    That is the same setup I had without an amp. Kicker tweets and kicker ds speakers all around.

    Put in the 6x9's and 6.5's and they sound great on clarity and the highs. The bass is not as good as the cheap factory speakers but this is due to them being powered off the stock head unit getting low power. Next step is to upgrade head unit and then the subs.

    Nah. Now that I’ve had a few days I’ve notice my driver side is defective and sending back for a new one. Will report when done

    I got the kicker 3.5 coaxial and use a razor knife to make the hole the original 2 3/4 bigg enough for the 3.5 it will only fit with one bolt and you have to splice a few wires. but the front staging is incredible in my truck I also use the boom matt to make a little cup for the 3.5 to sit in as a housing And replace the factory 6x9 that ties together with it

    So I replaced the 6x9's this morning because one was defective. Crutchfield was and is excellent on shipping for returns. Here is the link for speakers https://www.crutchfield.com/S-jKeDZe5cU4B/p_206DSC6904/Kicker-43DSC69304.html

    Here is my back speakers https://www.crutchfield.com/S-ci077VeK4Wu/p_206DSC6504/Kicker-43DSC6504.html

    Here are the tweeters in the dash: https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Subaru-H631SFJ101-Tweeter-Kit/dp/B00PV6F8I2

    Anyways do not use boom mat in the doors....it ruined the sound. I did a test this morning with it out and wow it was wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better. My bass came back and the sound did not sound choked. Now my truck sounds really good. Next step is head unit and subs

    Here is the link https://www.crutchfield.com/S-DyOjwYnLBel/shopsearch/Boom_Mat.html It sounds night and day difference without it!
