Shaker 500 upgrade question

I recently upgraded my door and rear speakers to Alpines, running them through an alpine 5 channel amp with a 10 in subwoofer in the trunk. The stock door subs are running as stock through the stock amp.

My questions:
1) would there be a benefit to upgrading the door subs to the Shelby kicker subs and replacing the amp the door subs are running through? The guy who did my installation seemed to think that would create some problems with multiple bass signals and that they would be "mashing up" and sound muddy.

I ask because I have a single channel kicker amp laying around going unused.

2) would a single channel amp work for the door subs or would I need a two channel amp to power the door subs?

Hope this all makes sense. Just trying to get the most out of the equipment I have.

Anyone, anyone, Bueller Bueller. Nobody has amped their door subs and used a sub in the trunk?

I have two Mustang buddies that have subs in the trunk, both with the subs in the doors and they just amped the one sub in the back.

I'm planning on getting a sub soon, but from what I've read and experienced, upgrading the head unit makes a world of difference.

Did they change the amp powering the door subs?
