West New system

Hello,

My brother would like to get a new system for his car. He has a 2001 Honda s2000 with a budget of $500. He would like a new deck that has a line input or ipod controller and also has an adapter for the deck controller on the left side of the car. Good voltages would be a plus with full rca's Its a two seater so maybe some components and a 2 channel amp. Hardly any room for a sub in the trunk so he will pass on the sub for now. Any ideas? thanks and happy thanksgiving

ps, any ideas for a good radar detector?

energy component, pioneer deck 4100 at least. and a little MTX 2channel amp.. should run under 500.. keep in account the harness, faceplate and antena adapter and wireing kit for the amp

you know now that i think of it... most people who are not audio enlightened (people who will never set foot on an audio forum) usually consider a system to be a deck and subs and they can be happy with it, so for 500 why not jsut a cheap deck cheap subs and box and amp. those exiles from fs are apparently really good and there only 150 each
