Me Too. Very nice amp, I usually fade it almost all the way to the front, don't hear the rear speakers at all, only fade the rear in when I have rear passangers. chenk out my car here, http://www.cardomain.com/id/taylordssei
Most mid/high grade headunits sound ok at med. volumes, but if you know you like/need it loud, amp the interiors. Even without subs, aftermarket fronts amped will improve the sound quality big time, as long as you by decent equipment. Before my mega system I also had An Alpine with V-drive 60x4 (27rms) and sounded pretty good, I just new it wasn't going to be enough for me.
Not all headunits will even take speaker inputs, mine dosen't 3 4 volt pre outs
