Like it says. What does your audio sound like? I have two 6x9's (one in the dash and one in the package tray) and two 6" round speakers (in the kick panels). Honestly, I don't mind the hollow sound much because I listen to music generally pretty loud. My wife is getting really irritated that it doesn't sound crisp and "normal".

I have thought about getting 2 8" subs and installing an amp to all speakers. Problem is, I know these cars aren't built for sound and the speakers don't have the proper enclosures to produce good sound.

So my questions is, what are you guys doing to get the sound right and is it working? A good comparison would be to my 2007 TBSS or my 2003 Silverado. Both have the Bose and both sound great. Also, If avoidable, I really don't want to cut in to anything.

Speaker quality is one thing but THE thing that sets all speakers apart is the enclosures in which they are mounted.
Your rear mounted speaker undoubtedly sounds better than the dash speaker because the trunk is acting as an enclosure of sorts.
The best speaker money can buy won't sound decent if it isn't in a tuned enclosure.

I have the classic sound blue tooth radio with a 6x9 in the dash. It sounds pretty good. Hey where can you mount 6" speakers in the kick panels? The ones by your legs? Does it look stock? How about the package tray next to 6x9 hole there are 2 more holes for maybe 6" speakers?
