i would suggest MTX 9500series subs, they out perform rockford fosegate subs.. they are made better and im pretty sure they had vids on their website to prove it.. i think a 12" sub and a amp to power it cost about a grand.. i would get their 3ways too, i think its cheaper than getting separate mids and tweaters... im not sure on the price of those tho..

Well i put a set of KICKER KS68 in the doors with the factory head unit for now. I lost most of my bass but, they sound more clear and natural. Still waiting on the head unit to come in.

OK, heres the setup so far. Headunit is the Pioneer DEH-P3900MP, Front speakers are a set of Kicker DS680 6x8, the rears are a set of Kicker KS68 6x8. Still deciding on the Amp and Sub...

RF has good speakers and amps. Go with the popular brands (Alpine, Pioneer, Kenwood, Eclipse, Etc.) for a headunit.

I dont believe our trucks had an amp other than the Tremor models.

((The head unit and speaker selections are done.!.)) I dont know, in order for my radio to work i had to plug the blue amp wire for the radios harness to another blue wire on the factory harness side, and if you take out the radio theres a little black box hanging to the left of the hole with a bunch of wires comming and going out of it. I also had two other people tell me that it is a factory amp.

hmm.....well....from what i'm understanding from this previous statement, you need to take the blue wire from the headunit and cap it until you have your amp in. That's the "switch" control for the amp. Tells the amp to turn on. That's if you have your pioneer h/u in....and it sounds like you do. Stock head units have a built-in amplifier...no extra wires going to it, as it's internal.

My suggestion on subs & amps......i'm allll about kicker. In my truck currently I have a 12" CVR 2ohm w/ a 400.1 Kicker amp....had that combo for probably 3 years now....and love it. It's alot.....but not alot......as.........my subaru has a Kicker L7 Solo Baric 12" in it w/ a 800w MTX amp. It was overkill in the ranger ,lol. I am going to replace the CVR12 and amp in my truck with a 12" L7 and a KX750.1....one of these days.

Do you have a reg cab? I can't really tell from the pic. reason i ask, is i installed one of those MTX Thunderform's in his reg cab....and it sounds good. Not as good as mine, but sounds good. I believe you can get them unloaded and empty....just the box.....choose your sub and hook up your amp and it fits great in the back of a reg cab driven by a 6'1" driver.

I cant cap off the blue wire from the head unit because then the speakers wont work. The head unit blue wire HAS to go the blue wire on the converting harness, then the speakers will work. The plan is to eliminate the converting harness form the speakers side and directly connect the speakers to the head unit. My factory radio had a 6-Disk CD changer in the back if that makes a difference . And yes my truck is an EXT Cab.

Well yesterday we installed a Rockford amp and a 8" 200W Bazooka tube. A few little adjustments to the headunit, and man does it sound good. Its not over powering and you really cant hear it out side the truck. I love it !!!!
