I have not used the MS-8 as of yet. However, from the information I was told, it best to installed it after the factory amp for 2 reasons. The first, to make sure all data going along the Hi-Speed Can bus is intact and second, the MS-8 can work the eq, crossover points, etc as it was designed for. I am still trying to confirm weather or not the first point is a must or an aftermarket adapter could work to eliminate the factory amp. You can use the internal amp on the MS-8, a combination of aftermarket amps and the internal amp or just pure aftermarket amps.
As of now I am still debating on which processor to get. Alpine is due soon, Rockford Fosgate will be out next year, the Audison bit one is still the premier one to get and of course their are others out there.
Get back to the MS-8, it will make a impact on the sound quality in JGC with the existing speakers. As always, if you change out the sub and front speakers, a dramatic difference will be heard.
Best for now.
