Shaker 500 Vs Standard CD Radio

I installed a Shake 500 and bought 2 door panels with big bass speakers. Is the plug in the door for these speakers and do I need additional OEM amplifiers? If so where are they?

There are two additional amplifiers (in the doors) that you will need to install the speakers and no, I don't think the harness is in the door if you had just the standard radio.

Correct, the harness is not there. I replaced my speakers that had just the generic radio.

Shaker 500

As a correction to Bigkzilla, those subwoofers amps (2) as in the diagram, are located above the driver's side kick panel...not in the doors. They are bolted to the car body. There is one for each subwoofer...left and right. Each amp has an electrical connector (as in diagram) at both upper and lower ends of amp.

The Shaker 500 system has 8 speakers total. Two rear, one subwoofer in each door, an additional enclosure in upper portion of each door with two speakers in each.

As others have said, I would expect you'd need additional wiring harnesses to complete the Shaker 500 system.
