It's really not complicated, what I did. I measure the diameter of the speakers and subtracted an inch. Then cut a hole that size in my door panel. Then I drilled holes to mount the speaker, added some spacers between the speaker and the door panel(breathing room and so the covers will fit.) then mounted. I soldered wires onto the subs and ran them through the factory grommet on the door to the undressed of the dash. It's really basic and I think when I actually get around to hooking them up, I'm gonna add some foam or something so they don't rattle as badly with the base.

As for the Amps, they are different from the front and back ones. The back ones came all assembled with harness so I could just just off te James's and run my own wires. The front amps require the harness because they don't come all busied together like my rear ones did(hence my idea to just get a single aftermarket one to run both subs.)
