Default 2015 Chevy Colorado...Early but need ideas.

Ok so I traded in my WRX for this truck and as always I'm looking to upgrade the stereo. I have pretty much everything that I took out of the WRX and I'm still debating on how much of it, if any I want to use. I sure could use some help and opinions on what to do.

Equipment available:
Audiocontrol LC2i
PPI deq8
(2) PPI 900.4s
PPI 1000.1
Morel 6" mids
Morel integra 402 point sources


First thing is the sub setup, as you can see in the pics, I don't have much room at all.

First option, I'm thinking about maybe doing 6.5" or 8" subs ported firing towards the front windshield with some grilles to protect the subs.

2nd would be a couple of slim subs down firing under the rear seat.

Next problem is the frontstage. I'm not sure if I can fit the Morel integra 402s in the dash, if not, than I might have to just do a 2 way frontstage with the tweeters in the dash. I don't really want to put too many holes in this car yet. The front doors hold 6x9s and I might be able to get away with fitting my Morel 6" mids and a small 3" mid on the same baffle in the doors and throw the tweet in the dash for a 3way. Any suggestions?

Finally mounting the amps, processor, and LOC.
The audiocontrol I'll have to install for the preouts. It will be ran off the front speaker level outs of the stock hu. The rear speakers will stay running off the factory hu for rear fill and I'll just turn the fader to the front if I want it off.

PPI amps barely fit under the seats or behind one side of the rear seats. I think I can fit two amps behind the rear seats. I might just have to go with a 6ch amp and sub amp or 2 5ch amps if I go with just a two way frontstage.

Here's some pics of what I'm working with.

The pics of the amp is the sub amp which is a little bigger than the 4ch amps.

Thanks bro. Sorry I didn't get vids of that last build.
So the start of this build will begin with an arc audio xdi 1200.6 6ch amp. Still trying to decide what else I want to get for this truck and trying to figure out what I should do for the substage.

Monday I'll be getting some tint put on and within the next couple of weeks I'll get a leveling kit.

I might have missed it but did you choose your front stage?

Not yet. Still debating whether I want to go 2way or 3way, I would have to figure out where to mount my tweeter though. Probably on doors sail panels.

I agree with Silver-N-Black, I would definitely keep the ppi's as they are great amps.

So I got a few new amps today. Arc audio xdi1200.6 and xdi1100.1, I got a great deal on them. Here's a little comparison with the PPI 900.4.

Still debating on going 2way or 3way active frontstage and whether I want to do a single 10 in a fiberglass enclosure in the passenger footwell or maybe 2 10" shallow mount subs under the rear seats.

Getting closer! Just need to get some wiring, deadening for the doors, prefab underseat box, and the hybrid audio imagine 6x9s should get here sometime next week. Here's a link to the box I'll be using and I do have both dayton subs already. They fit the specs of the box perfectly although I will get some polyfill also.
