    subs and speakers

    For the tweeters in the doors, 2 way pioneers. And 4 way pioneer 6.5. Same thing for the sail panels speakers. And the rear hatch 5 way pioneers. I have a JVC hu and the monsoon amp.
    For the subs I was thinking 2 Memphis 10 inch shallow subs with a 1000 watt Memphis amp. I wanted to put them on the ledge behind the rear seats.
    I would love your guys opinion on this.

    I don't know much about the newer pioneer speakers but I've always stayed away from them in the past. Aside from their head units. As far as the hatch speakers if your running subs i wouldn't waste the money. If you ran a decent component setup in the front doors i don't even see a real need for the sails. I am by no means an audio expert but I have had my fair share. I've had 3 camaro's and had the prefab sealed t top well boxes in all of them but I barely pull the t tops.
    I don't know much on the memphis shallow mounts but I know the pioneer shallows are amazing for the money.
    If funds are available I would ditch the monsoon amp. My first 2 camaro's had the monsoon setup which for stock was really good even with aftermarket speakers. My current z has stock speakers with a rockford 300/4 and for stock speakers I'm amazed backed by 2 alpine type r's on a 1000 watt rms amp.
    It all really depends on personal preference and what type of music you listen to. What is your budget and what do you like? That will really help decide what would best fit what you want

    If it were me - and I'm planning to do it .... amplify the front 2 6.5's with a non-Monsoon amp. If that Memphis amp is 4 channel, you could drive your 2 subs with 2 channels and then use the other 2 channels on high pass filter for the 2 fronts.
