‘Sensing’ ... not Sending’...😊
You could add the door speaker baffles which are cheap quick and easy to do and look into getting a powered sub with a knob and/or have it all installed by a car stereo shop.
I built mine over the top because I can and to amuse myself.

Got it. Thx.
I assume I can buy the baffles.
Is the stock amp unit decent... low distortion?

Baffles on Amazon and ebay.
Look at my post #8 in this thread for links.
The HK is pretty good.
I had these components from previous cars and I wanted it louder
and more like an amusement park ride when I crank
it up to 11 😄

The old school made in USA Rockford Punch amps I've used for various builds over the last 20 years have become old and problematic, even the rebuilt ones something was always going.
While shopping on Amazon I found these new Planet Audio amps about the same size and close power output (400-500 rms) to the Rockfords that fit into my rear compartment if I remove the right and left bottom plastic corners on both of them to fit the sprare tire well.
They were only about 100.00 each and have102 db S/N ratio, sound great.
I bridged the one amp for my front speakers and used the other one as a 4 channel
for the rear doors and under seat subs.

Rockford 500a2 600a4




Planet Audio







They also have a mono sub amp about the same dimensions as my Rockford 15001 which hasn't given me any problems.

My 2 subs weigh 65 lb each and the box is 25 lb so opening it was like weight lifting.
I put the box in empty then mount the subs and do the reverse to take it out.
I got some universal tail gate struts on Amazon that come with mounting brackets
and also got some some hinges and put them in.
Used fender washers on both sides in the well which is quite strong.
Now I still use the post but only have to exert about 10 lbs of force to lift the box open.
