    To start 6x9's would never fit in the back doors of the new body style chevy's and the door panel would look like hell to hack up, the only problem i see here bro is the fact that you want to run 2 amps off the stock deck which will work but you will hafta run a hi-level adapter for one amp and either a 4 channel hi-level adapter for the 4 channel or run 3 hi-levels altogether and if you do that you will be extremely unhappy with the sound quality of everything, i would honestly change the deck first but if you dont wanna just do the subs first because again all those hi-level adapters on the deck will make everything sound horrible, also if you are planning on doing the install yourself make sure you get the remote turn on from the ignition wire in the ignition loom under the dash and fuse it with a 5 amp the new LAN based systems are sensitive and you dont wanna damage it. other than that i would say your audio equipment you want to use is fair but just from being in the industry awhile i would do polks or infinity reference if you do want good sound calrity in your high's and mid's. Let me kno if you have n e other questions!

    Real good info on this site! I just got 2 new sets (4 speakers) of Alpine 6.75 speakers for $80.00. I also purchased a Square Trade warrantee for 10.00. Shop around, measure, ask questions, then just go for it!

    Good Luck!

    ya man i would go with rockfordfosgate or menphis audio. and for a crew cab they make custom boxes to go right under your seat and go with 10's sound great and hit hard. Amps is personal prefrence i would personaly go with the alpine or rockfordfosgate.

    is the truck the bose system? My 08 has 6" in the 4 doors but it is the bose system. For a amp try thinking about memphis. I am using a PRD1000.1 on 2 JLw6D4's. It is crystal clear sound and can handle a hard load at 45 hz. Please they have a built in fan to help cooling when in confined space.

    JL Audio the best??? Maybe the best MainStream Sub but not the best. The damn W7 cost over $800!! There are alot of underground sub and amp companys that are worth alot more. JL also sell 1000 Watt amp for $1000! There is one company called SunDown Audio, Now that is quality. All there amps are underrated and cheap compared to JL. You get a 1000 watt amp from them and itll be doing over 1500 Watts RMS.
    Fi, AudioQue, Sundown, SSA, Incriminator, DC Audio, All great companys with quality products and customer service.
    Rockford Fosgate is probably the best MainStream Amp Company. They got some badass amps.

    I have been in the car audio industry and if you like you said in in the first post I would go with a set of
    08ks652 that is the kicker KS series 6.5 inch components for the front doors
    08ks650 for the read door they are the KS 6.5 inch coax speakers
    07cvt102 that is the CVT 10 inch dual 2 ohm sub, run 2 of them under the back seat up firing
    I would just run a 08zx1000.1 for the subs and like a 08zx350.4 for the door speakers

    Square Trade warranties and service contracts are the bomb. With one exception, they've really helped us out a lot.

    10 Chevy Traverse LT AWD
    02 Chevy Trailblazer LS (110K+ miles - loaded except for 4WD - WRECKED!)
    99 Chevy Cavalier LS (105K+ miles - commuter car)
    78 Chevy Suburban Silverado (454, 3/4 ton)
    62 GMC 3/4 ton Pickup (350 police interceptor)
