Wow. What you have listed is exactly my setup at the moment. I have the exact same head unit, and I have that exact same soundbar. I've never had a car with a sub, and I've never had an amp. I replaced my dash speakers with these speakers. I had to fashion some brackets to make them fit, but they sound great. The soundbar I won off a bid on Ebay, but ended up paying close to what you have listed there with shipping. They sound good as well. It's all I need in terms of sound, but then again, I haven't had a chance yet to test it with the top off.

I will post some pictures of the actual setup tomorrow when it's not dark and so cold outside.
