If this does not cure your itch, then you can put the C2's in the rear, put a better set of separates up front and add a second amp to run them.

Most people will tell you the JL's are over priced, this may be true, but my car sure sounds good to me. If you need any specific pointers on how to wire in the LOC's or anything else, feel free to PM me. I have all the wire color codes for what is what at the two factory amps.

Thanks for the info and offer on help. I may need it. I'm not a stereo expert but I love listening to music.

I don't want to get rid of my trunk space though. Really I'd like to pick a good to great setup inside the car. And if that can be done without swapping out the amps that would be cool too.

Do you think just doing the front door speakers with one of the ones I posted would be good? How much better if I do the rears replacement? I know a lot of folks said it wasn't worth it but its hard for me to imagine that replacing them wouldn't be better than stock. Not sure though...
