I just picked my '99 Sierra extended cab up tonight, and was pleasently suprised when he said "oh I forgot to mention", and proceded to say that he replaced the speakers with jensen units and put a powered sub in.

SOOO I get home and see that the front doors are indeed replaced, cool, but the rear door speakers are still looking awful stock and the "powered sub" is just a cheesy 10" bazooka that's been spliced into the rear speaker wires.

This sounds "OK" but I'd like something a little nicer. I want to KEEP my stock head unit, not a Bose, simply because I like the look of the stock one in the truck. I'm going to brand match the rear door speakers to the fronts, and I also have an older Rockford 600 or 800 watt amp that is collecting dust in the house somewhere.

I was thinking along the lines of cleaning up all the wiring, tossing the rockford amp in and running either a 10 or a 12 in a subthump single box.

Do you see a problem in my plan anywhere? Which sub do I go with size wise? I'll probably end up looking for a more affordable sub before a top performing one, as stereo's aren't all that important to me, just want a nicer sound. I don't play alot of bass, but when I crank it I want a good mix of bass, mid, and treble... right now the bass tube is just trying to distort alot.

either will sound fine with that much power, I'd swap the jensen speakers for a low end mb quart or something though

word on the 12"....just gives you a more full sound compared to a 10" IMO. Although the 10" can sound just as good and sometimes better than the 12"

thanks for the input guys, I do like cajundragger's setup alot. I'm content with the junk that's in there for now, there are some other things I'm wanting to attend to first.
