Anyone put 8"door subs in a base V6?

My son has a base V6 that we have changed out both the door and rear coaxials to Pioneers, still very little bass. Just wondered if anyone has removed the door panel and discovered whether the wiring harness for the door subs was there or not like it is on the Shaker 500. If the vacant harness for the bass modules is there, it seems to me that installing the shelby kickers with a mono amp would be quite easy. Any suggestions?

Yeah installing the shelby kickers would be easy enough. You would need an aftermarket amp for the shelby take offs. They are like 200 watts at 2ohms or something. The stock Shaker500 amp would have under powered them. Also fabricating to fit in the doors...

But if you were going to add an amp to his system, I would just recoment getting a 10 or 12 inch sub for the trunk. I have a 10 inch sealed sub in mine, and its just a little louder than my shaker500 8's were. Plus its a small 12x12x12 box that fits right in the right corner with barely any trunk space lost. It sounds way better in sound quality to the stock 8's. A 12 would be good if he wants louder than the shaker500. Or a 10 inch in a ported box might do the trick.

Also for fronts I used Alpine Type R 6.5 components. Mid bass has impressed me quite a bit. Another good set is the Image Dynamics CTX 6.5s. They are supposed to be a great speaker set. Probably still not going to replace a subwoofer regardless.

I was originally only replacing my front speakers. But got so carried away that I ended up changing all my stereo components, except for my rear speakers. Lol goodluck

Thanks for the advice gentlemen, I think the trunk sub is the way to go, less expensive and sounds better.
