Alright.. perfectly what I was wanting to hear.. I'll go ahead and keep it down at the 6x8 standard for the doors then.. I had remembered hearing about the differences of stepping up to a 6x9 from a 6x8 and heard it was a good step up if you had the ***** to do it to your truck. I'll keep it simple though!
My full plan, is to get 2 full sets of them and plug them straight to my headunit for now.. I've got a 54x4 rms on my headunit right now so the preamp is decent enough to not need an amplifier right away. But eventually will look into a slim amp for under the seat.. or perhaps removing the pop out seat behind the driver.. since no one will ever sit there with me driving (I'm tall, so the seat is all the way back) and then mounting an amp in there with some jail bar reinforcement and security.
