    So I think I finally understand all of this.

    Speakers________________________
    Swap tweeters easily via plug and play.
    Swap speakers on doors easily using the harness that ships with crutchfield and just plug that into the stock door-speaker harnesses.

    Amp___________________________
    Power stuff using amp wiring kit
    ********* amp harness kit. Plug both harnesses to original harness and to headunit.
    Leads of one of the ********* harnesses goes into the amp input's harness. (Attached image)
    Leads of the other ********* harness connects to amp's speaker out terminals. (No crimping or anything needed right???)



    I don't think I'm missing any parts/equipment that I would need, right?

    I just noticed I write "right?" a lot, right? Right...

    So i installed/upgraded all 6 speakers (sans amp) yesterday. I liked the sound a lot. Much better. But I feel like I need deadening. And the rear speakers were not loud at all, and were mostly mids...was hoping for more bass. But the 6x9s in the front are awesome. Annnnnd, I think my next upgrade will be to install the amp I listed, which I held off on purchasing till I heard the speakers with the stock headunit.

    The $250 is a decent upgrade, but I want something.

    Anyway...thats my feedback.

    Yeah that’s why I added a sub. I didn’t think making the speakers louder would do anything except for more mid bass. After I added the sub I didn’t need anything else. Speakers get plenty loud without distortion. I also don’t blare my music any more. A single 10 behind the seat was plenty

    Ah, yeah....I know what you mean about the mid bass. But I was driving around listening to music yesterday, and I gotta say, the 6x9s really delivered some solid bass. I am thoroughly impressed.
