 2002 Chevy Malibu Receiver

Hello CarStereo.com, I currently drive a 2002 Chevy Malibu and am looking to replace my deck. Since the deck depth is a small one (6-1/4" space) I know there are only a handful of decks that will fit. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_105KDHDR60/JVC-KD-HDR60.html?tp=5684 is one of them. With the 2002 Chevy Malibu you need to get the http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120GMRC01/GM-Factory-Integration-Adapter.html?tp=3486 (or GM's 98+ in general). I was just wondering if I could use a regular wiring harness instead of the 79.99$ product (excluding the 50% off). I know that it would be unsafe because of the lack of door chime but I'm aware of my door... I was told that the 00+ harness does not work with it but the GM 94+ Wiring Harness does (excluding the lack of no door chime). Can I do this? Another question is that I already have an after market deck lying around except I'm pretty sure the depth is deeper. Can it fit or will it only fit with a custom fabrication? Another thing, is this deck fine for http://www.amazon.com/KENWOOD-KFC-W3012-Subwoofers-KAC-9105D-Amplifier/dp/B001VESZWO/ref=pd_rhf_p_t_2 and are those subs fine with my car? I know this is alot of information, but thank you in advance! TomIrving08

yes you do need the adapter or a few things wont work including your obd2 scanner, and you can always make an extender for your h/u im not sure about aftermarket radio depth extenders but im sure they make them.And if you put the h/u on then as long as it has rca's on the back you can hook up an amp to it. and the kenwoods are good they like a ported box about 1.7cu ft each tuned to 65 hz thell get loud in that trunk!!! hope tis helps

well for $100 they arent too bad but not sloppy, they just dont hit the low lows that well, but compared to other subs in the same price range they are good. You get what you pay for, they aint no focal or genesis but they sound better and are louder in a 1.7cu ft. ported box than they do in a 1cuft sealed box.

Hmm, in the other thread I had (solely about the kenwoods) I was told they would sound sloppy in a ported box. I do want loud, but I don't want sloppy and I want these subs to last me.

then go sealed, like i said they arent the best if you want crisp clear sound save up a bit and go JL youll get clarity you want.the kenwoods dont like low lows, the frequency range is from 20hz-1000hz,(a good sub will be something like 20hz-300hz) they sound better in the upper ranges but wont hit the lows as well. And no they arent sloppy in a ported box, or at least to me but everyones ears are diff. For a similar price check out Audioque.com the sdc2.5's are waaaayy better for basically the same price. I see your leaning on not getting them and if you have doubts look around there are many better brands out there, but for a basic setup they sound good. When i had them in a 1cuft box they were ok but suffered in the loud i wanted , when i put them in a 1.7cuft ported box they were louder and i didnt notice any change as to how well they sounded except they got into the lows a bit better so good luck
