I would save up and get better equipment all the ones you listed are junk. Maybe if you list a budget I can recommend you great gear for decent prices.

I just realised you are in Quebec, best bet is to buy used and stick with popular brands.

Future shop and visions.ca have good deals. I would go with equipment from there for sure as long as they are on sale. Better than Pyle, Pyle isn't any good and none of those ratings are close to being true.

What kind of vehicle is the equipment going into and how much space will you be using?

I would stay away from the cheap brands, they seem enticing but your gonna end up with crap speakers that you will be replacing in the future eventually adding up to what you would have spent on higher quality. I just got my new setup for my car at sonicelectronix, alpine type s component speakers $80 these are 80RMS @4 ohms i believe, i have these powered by a 2 channel MB quart amp $80 putting out [email protected] ohms to each speaker. Notice that i am only using front speakers, this is personal preference but alot of audio enthusiasts will agree that high power fronts are all you need if you have a subwoofer in the back, think of a concert, the band plays in front of you, never behind you, rear speakers are essentially just fill for passengers (im sure someone will debate this) my subwoofer setup would be over your budget but if you want some cheap good bass i would reccomend an alpine type s $80-90 and you should be able to find a hifonics mono amp for $150 this would bring your total to $400 and will be a banging 1st system, dont be deceived by the high rms those cheap brands are advertising, these items i suggested will blow those out of the water in both output and sound quality and last wayyyy longer. Also do you have an aftermarket head unit? and does your 500 budget include installation, or maybe you do your own installation, because i dont know what the prices are like in canada but here where labor is about $60/hour, i would guess doing a whole setup like this will cost at least 200 maybe pushing up to 300 after you add in installation parts.
