Question second speaker housing

ok so i am wanting to put a second speaker housing in the door of my reg cab '08 so that there is two in each door has anyone already done this and think that it is a good idea because i am going to be putting another sub in my truck so there is two and i want a good balance in the music so that the sub is not over powering the speakers and visa versa

i was thinking more in the door i have seen those and didnt like them cuz i wont be able to use my ebrake. since my truck is a standard i use that rather than put it in gear when i park it there is a sound shop near where i live and he said he can put the housing in the door for $500 (and thats both sides) and i want to know if its worth it

would be worth it to me if I had a 5 speed better location IMO

I would worry about the comfort of it if came out to far and was in the way while driving

Personally I don't think it would be worth it. I would say get a nice set of components and that should give you the highs and mids you would ever need.

I believe that one pair of components, properly amplified and crossovered will perform as good or better. More of a quality vs. quantity.

I'd agree with those who suggested components. More is not necessarily better.

what i am trying to get from my truck is clarity when the volume is extremely loud. i am going to be putting in another 10" sub i have an 800 watt amp that will run the two 10" and i will get a 4-channel amp (not sure on watts) to run the rest of the speakers and i dont want the bass to to be over powering (and turning the volume down is not an option....) and i want to know that if the extra speakers will keep it even
