I'm quite sure the amp for the subs is right in the radio itself. I think the rear speakers are the same for the basic radio as well as the shaker 500 or pro - they are fair at best.
I already bought a 2014 GT Base and there was no option for a better stereo(not that I wanted to pay any more $ for a stock stereo anyway). The Shaker 500 comes with the Premium as standard and the Pro was optional on the Premium.
However, I want to upgrade it a little and was looking into a cheap way to do it for now with stock parts. What I really want to know is what I need besides the door panels to upgrade it to the Shaker 500.
