Yes . Now, question is, how would you power that ...

Yes . Now, question is, how would you power that speaker? I don't know of any full range mono amps, so, how to power a single speaker?

Sorry to resurect from the dead here....
I have the M'13 edition, with the 9speaker setup.. so, if I followed correctly, there are 3 dash, 4 door, and 2 rear, + 1 - 8" sub.
I was thinking about removing the sub, and putting in my dual 12's, and using line level inputs to my amp, and then using my 4ch amp for the door speakers... but what "stages" are all the speakers in? There is the "surround" mode in the stereo, so that I am assuming is center dash speaker, but when you use the fader for front/rear/left/right, which speakers are tied together? Or, should I find another 4ch amp and a 2 channel, and only use 1 of the channels on that?
The stereo sounds pretty decent, but it could be better. I obviously can't want to remove the stock 8.4 u-connect, as it controls everything... so changing the speakers and amping them, is the only way to go. Should I amp them all?
-- edited as I can't math... LOL

I'm debating this question with my GT. Do I leave the center speaker dead, or ???
I know they use to sell 5ch full range amps, back when DVD started to male it's way into cars. Other than finding a low power two channel to bridge, and a matching 4 channel that has the same power as the bridged two channel, or two, and going this route, with a LOT of LOCS. I may just wait till I have a car that is more audio friendly, to build my system.
I just got done with our Durango build...so maybe that should tide me over...

How about this for an idea?
Kicke4r CX125.2 bridged for the center speaker, Two PDXV9 amps, one for the door speakers, one for the front and rear dash speakers, and the sub amps for two Alpine 12" Type S speakers. You are going to need a LOC for the Center, front, and rear speakers. You might be able to use the factory sub wires, to another LOC, for the sub amps.
But, to answer your first question, with the Alpine system, LOC from the sub speaker wires, to a sub amp of your choice, and subs of your choice.

So, I found this little gem cruising Crutchfields website.
It's 160W RMS @ 4 ohms! So, now this, with 4 of these through LOCs and you can amp all nine full range sepeakers.
Add a Sub amp for moar boom!
$170X5=$850 in full range amps, use LOCs or the built in high level input, upgrade to MUCH better speakers, and done.
I't still not sure I want to go that route, as 3.5" speakers are rare in the high end world
Do you happen to have measurements for the Alpine amp/tuner? I'd like to hide an MS8 in there if it will fit...
