If you're not going to amp them, Infinity & JBL make good 5x7 2ohm speakers. I replaced all 4 5x7's with infinity 6832's and had someone tap in to the subwoofer speaker leads and run wires to the trunk. Those wires feed a bazooka BTA6100 (6.5 inch 100 watt) sub tube.

This WILL NOT replicate concert volume Metallica, but it's clean and plays louder than I want it to (most of the time).

NOTE: in the Shaker 500 (and I would assume the 1000) the 5x7's are filtered. They do not get low frequencies. Originally I tapped into the rear 5x7's to feed the sub, but you could barley hear the sub. Then I found out that I had to tap the leads from the amp to the subs in the door...

NOW all works as intended.....

2014 - V6 Premium w/ Pony Pkg ~ Boss 302 Strut Brace ~ Infinity 6832's speakers ~ Bazooka BTA6100 Sub Tube ~ Matte Black Stripes ~ FRPP 18x8.5 Matte Black Bullit Wheels ~ Air Raid CAI ~ MBRP S7242304 Exhaust
