The regular door and deck speakers are just 25 watter’s, with the HU delivering about 22 watts max to each of those. However the door woofers are special 1 ohm dual voice coil units. The shaker amps are high current devices that are designed to drive those ridiculously heavy loads with 10 amps or more. So the door woofer power gets up to around 100 watts each side (I haven’t had the parts set up on the bench to get exact numbers). With the unique design of the woofer/amp combination if you substitute one you have to substitute the other too, i.e. the shaker amps won’t deliver any more power into a standard 4 ohm woofer than the HU could. $7,000 sounds nuts though, no matter what they do. You don’t mention what year your pony is, but it may only blue book for a few thousand more than that total.
