yea ive got my 6x9's amped 100x2 and it sounds great. only problem that i have found is that they tend to overpower the front speakers so u might want to get a 4 channel amp and then change the front and rears.

ive been looking at getting a custom box built to make a wall right after my back seats for my 2 10's to save as much space as possible, but idk where to begin or how it would sound.

You can run all 4 tweets to a two channel amp like i did here and sounds great but yes a four channel you could adjust better but anyways my stock fronts are very loud off amp

Check out Ebay and get the factory sub from an LT or SS model Balt and have that installed and wired to an amp. Thats is what I did and I can still take my family of 4 on a week vacation without worrying about lack of space. The factory sub gits into the drivers side corner of the trunk and you loose minimal room. I also Dynamatted the trunk and the sound is awesome. I recently got a compliment on the sound volume and quality from some people at a car show that I went, didnt compete just went for ideas.

Bazooka tube ftw. Small(er), affordable, fills in the bass, and easy to remove and reinstall in a new car. Or get some used Pioneer OEM SS speakers (~$50). I just put a set in the back and its like night and day from the OEM LS/LT ones.

I still have my LT stock. Looking on a way to get a little more bass without getting huge amps capacitors and boxes. I want a little more bass but not loose all my space.

Im eaither gonna swap out for bigger 6x9s and hook up a 2 channel amp using line convertors off the original speaker wires in trunk or get speaker amps if i can find some somwhere and 6x9 swap.

mine's an 07 as well i spent the money and got the install kit cost me bout 100 for the wiring harness to turn the chime's off and on and for the center peice... if you go this route i dunno if it does it to all but i had to turn my chime's off for my amp's to come one.. note this is a full aftermarket stero it'll be ok for stock tho.
