Thanks for the advice...keep it coming.
In case there is any confusion about the ohm load on the factory deck,
it doesnt matter to me because I am switching it out for an Eclipse
5423 and later something even better than that. More specifically,
what about taking off the front door panels to install the front
components, anything about that I should know about that?
