Added new speakers ( New pics )
 
I upgraded my stock system with the kicker system some time back. But in my opinion it was lacking some mids and highs in the rear. I have heard that the kicker sends bass and highs to the front and mids to the rear speakers. My solution was to add some 3" mids and small tweeters to the rear pillars. These will be powered by a 4 channel amp. I plan on powering the rear door speakers off this amp also. here are some pics of what I have now. I will take some finished pics tomorrow since it got dark here before I finished.

I painted the panels black and the speakers as well. It sounds WAY better. I have a pioneer head unit so it has separate rca outputs which gives me the option of hooking up a few amps. I'm using a kicker 4x100 amp that works as two 2 channel amps. Rear speakers are on one side, the doors will be on the other. I have separate gains and crossover points for both channels so I can control the levels better.

Thanks. It does make a difference. I think it an inexpensive upgrade to the factory sound system.

It did come out better than I thought. Well worth the effort. It was really easy to do.I plan on painting ALL the pillars black and doing the headliner in black also.
