    wimpy compared to some, but its exactly what i was looking for/lacking. so i followed the diy for the rear speakers in the reg cab a little while ago. my mounting system sucked so i redid those today. i also noticed that since the speakers were firing into the back of the seats, they were a tad muffled. and i was still lacking my lower end of the spectrum. so fast forward now to my new finished product. just finished up about 20 min ago. do give the 6.5's a little more ooompf, i bought a kicker kx200.4. 2 channels to the speakers, and 1 channel going to my 8" kicker sub. after about 30 min of balancing everything out, i love it. still have the factory front speakers and headunit. excuse the mess in this pic, i still havent finished hiding all the wires yet.

    crap bolted and welded together....
    line outs are a easy way to go with a factory headunit. But really if you get an aftermarket HU you will notice a difference. I suggest looking into a new HU and ditching the factory. But none the less, very nice install man :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    ya i never originally intended to go this route so i never thought to upgrade the head unit. still dont think i want to yet, not long ago i bought the ipod hook up for the factory radio and hooked it all up
