I bought a nice Kenwood DVD double-din unit several years ago. DDX-6019. I bought an amp and a sub box. I then used the radio power for the mids and highs and the amp for the sub. Using the headunit, I can keep the mids and highs from trying to play any bass by making them only play maybe 200hz and up. Then do the opposite with the bass. Believe it or not, if you take the low frequency away from the other factory speakers, they sound pretty decent. There's enough power with the headunit to power them, and they're not trying to play frequencies that are too low. Then let the sub do it's job and it sounds pretty good. I know there are those that would recommend all new mids and highs, separate amps, etc. but this seemed like the easiest and most cost-efficient way of doing it and it sounds decent. BTW, the crossover functions are handled inside the head unit.
