    I have the film getting developed down at the drug store.

    So far, I'm running stock amp & head unit, with an Lc2i, Morel speakers and Skar sub.

    Ahh... so you're going that route... Ok never mind that won't work lol...

    So I'm guessing you are just adding an amp for the sub only? Morel's off of the factory amp?

    You are going to need some 18ga wire to run the door connectors if you want to mount the crossovers in the door. This is unless you are comfortable butchering the the stock harness at the stock amp or the kick panel to interrupt the stock speaker wires.

    Here is what I did to run new line. You don't need to double it up like I did since you only need it for the tweeters. Look for the empty holes in the connectors and make sure there isn't a dead ended pin on the door side. My front drivers side had 2 empty pinned spots. Than use like a pick tool to widen the hole a bit and shove the wire through.

    Yes, the Skar come with it's own amp and enclosure. The Morel's I plan on running off the factory amp, the tweeters in the stock location. I had planned on putting the crossovers in the rear and run line just for the tweeters.

    Hopefully I don't regret not going all in. I mostly listen at low to medium levels. I just wanted to add some fullness and clarity. I was actually pretty happy with the system once I wrapped the sub, and was tempted to stop there, but you always want to fiddle a little more!

    I’m very curious on how it sounds,
    Once your done. Really just curious on how those Morels sound on the stock amp and head unit power.

    What version of the Morels did you choose?

    I got the Morel Tempo Ultra 602 from Bruce @Hush Car Audio. I'll defnitely let you know. Member @GCATX put them in his truck and was happy with them. He's the one that helped me make up my mind.

    The Morels you got are really nice speakers. I've never once heard anyone complain about them. They sound like really expensive speakers and can pound out some midbass easily.

    I’ve been considering these. Really wasn’t sure if I was going to use them in bandaid mode with the stock B&O system, and hope for decent improvement in sound quality. Or maybe weight until I revamp the whole trucks system. So very curious to hear about how they work with the stock system.

    They work well with the stock system but will be handicapped due to the stock tuning from the B&O system. There will be a decent improvement to justify the purchase. It might make you want to see what it's full potential can be though since this improvement is pretty decent. It only gets better.

    I can't believe how easy it was to pull the sill plates! i wish all the panels in the truck came off so easy.
