I installed Dynamat on both doors and the difference is amazing! Much less ambient noise. I will post a new RTA soon. Blocking the white noise coming in from the doors will make your interior music less muddied.

Also, Dynamat will increase the depth of any speaker system you put in the car. Allowing for a warmer tone quality because the attachment point (your car door) isn't just a metal plate.

Amazon has the door kit for around $50 which is about half of retail. Kind of a PAI install but you will be happy with it when you are done.

Originally I was going to go with a 5 channel amp. So far, I changed all speakers to the Infinity Reference speakers and am getting more punch than I originally thought because of the Dynamat on the doors. I will probably still want more down the road but am quite impressed with the Dynamat and 4 speaker set up.

Just my .02

I have the base stereo equipment so I'll have to run new wires. What kind of subs do you recommend? Powered/non-powered, size, brand, etc...

Thanks for this! I think this is a little bit lower on my list but I think it would definitely help out!
