my setup was a bit less than 500 with installation and everything. Diamond D361 in front an rear and a Diamond D3 400.4 running them. Nice sound and they decently loud. however, i would ditch rear speakers if i were to do it over. if he's not interested in a sub then you might wanna look at speakers with a bit better bass response for the woofer.

i would go rainbow slc's and a pair of eu700s in the rear, and get a nice 4 channel amp to power it

eu's can handle bass duties and slcs could handle the rest

What kind of car is it? I am in the process of doing a budget eBay syetem where everything is NIB and I have kept it under $500 installed. I would go w/DLS Reference line or the Rainbow's and get the EU-700's for the rears as suggested above. You can get an Aura RPM4200 from Parts Express for under $100 still shipped to you and you have everything you need.
