I've been tempted to take one of them out and put it in my truck as it doesn't have subs. (yet.) That or get a shaker 1000 box and hook up some bigger subs in the trunk. Decisions decisions.

As for companies, I've always been a fan of Pioneer products, with a hatred for Sony car products. I think Kicker is overrated, but is still a decent product.
Did you change out the speakers or just amp the factory speakers? After lookin at my shaker 500 speakers I couldn't imagine any more sound being mustered out of them. To get a real performance boost from an amp youd have to change out the speakers to something that can take the added power.
