Best bet, hi-fi coded head unit with L7 sub.
Dont waste your time on fitting these unless you are going for aftermarket amp.
I have 40W at 2R on the bass units, but now the Alpine pushes out 85W at 4R which is over powering the stock ones and will distort upon full volume as I have noticed. Considering the Hifi stock bass is 70W per channel at 4R, I seriously doubt I am going to under power the SWS 8s using the Alpine.
