Give us more info. Type of car, type of music you listen to, is bass very important, are you planning to upgrade or add more components later, does it have to be new equipment????

ok...look at the FOR SALE section and there are some very good deals there. There are MB quart amps for peanuts, Crossfire amps for 75.00, subwoofers everywhere. There's even a 6.5" set of Kicker components for cheap. Just looking in there I can get a system for 380.00 or so. 2 crossfire amps for 150.00, an infinity sub system (2x12" subs, and a box) for 180.00, and a kicker component set for around 50.00....not bad for 380.00. All those at retail would cost you at least 1200.00 before taxes. One crossfire for the front components, and the other for the subs for now (they would be a little underpowered but great to get going). Later you can get a dedicted sub amp, and add rear speakers powered by the other crossfire amp, or use the two crossfires for the subs (bridged for 300 watts each) and power you components from the deck until you find a decent amp for them. Lots of possibilities.
