But If i ask you if i should change my OEM HU to a HU which has more than 1 Pre-Outs? or if i shall go for a amp like KAC-8401 which seems to have a Speaker level in?
What would you suggest me & What diffrence does it make. Once i remember changing my Kenwood HU in my Ikon as it had no Pre-outs, and the installer said that it will not support a Sub.
Pardon me as i have not much knowledge on this.

JBL GTO8628 - my experience so far
I own a 2 week old Figo, which has lots in common with the Fiesta, including the 5x7" speaker recesses. I upgraded the stock speakers on all four doors with JBL GTO 8628s. On the rear doors there was a plastic spacer already in place (factory fitted, for some reason) and on the front there were none.
I retained the stock Ford HU.
End result: Vast improvement in sound stage, but groaning, rumbling, and vibrations from the two front doors, even at 30% volume, and without turning up the bass on the HU. I'm forced to fade the sound to the rear doors.
I was considering either a spacer on the front doors (maybe 0.5" MDF) or damping. How much would damping cost for the front doors alone? Where in BLR can I get this done? Or is the MDF spacer a good solution.
I mainly listen to rock and metal. Have any Fiesta owners experienced a similar problem on changing stock speakers in their front doors?
Awaiting your replies and suggestions!
