Just take the $200 and buy some quality components for the front and forget about your rear for now.

k so i still need a system by this friday and with the price of install etc.. i still only have 200ish to spend.

i still need an amp, some 6.5's and some 5x7's. :confused:

ideas?

Get an amp and some 6.5 components for the fronts

Forget about the rears for now. A lot of people dont even use rear speakers.

You probably could get something decent if you spend 100 dollars on the speakers and 100 on an amp

I dont really feel qualified to recommend anything since I am only a noob myself but I am going with an alpine amp and components for the front (I did pretty much research and thats what everyone around here is telling me to do)

I traded for some rear speakers but I did not really need to.

Is this amp good for the price or could he do better?

I don't know too much about MA audio other than that it sux for the most part. Except for the HK series amp. But for that price, it's hard to do better new, that's why I suggest he looks in the classifieds. Used equipment but still good and for a good price

If you forget about the rears you could get 2 channel amp and send more power to the fronts.

Also dont forget you are going to need an amp wiring kit.

I just recently won a brand new cadence 6004 amp on ebay for 99 bucks. They are normally 179. I picked up some pg rsds for 90 after shipping also. This amp is also alot more then you would need for just some fronts. I run my sub off it also. You could get by with a 1502 cadence at http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductCart/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=125
Check ebay for cheaper prices.

Make sure you factor in a amp kit for about 50 bucks, and if you want components to sound good you will need sound deadening for the doors, about another 60 bucks at the cheapest if you can manage to get half a roll of raammat.

To go cheaper you can go with some coaxial speakers, but for the small price difference you can go up to components and you would get better sound.

Im not sure if any factory stereos come with any pre amp outputs? I guess take it out and check or see if you can find the specs for it somewhere...I dont really know how to install speakers with a factory amp, Any help here?

Where to you plan on mounting the amp? the trunk?

And as for speaker wire if the amps in the trunk you are going to need to run it to each front speaker so that will probably need to be around 15-18 feet each. Then just estimate how much you will need for the rears. (Not sure where your rears are)

It should not be to hard and will save you a lot of money.

I had no clue what I was doing before I installed mine and it turned out great.
(just read up on it a little bit)

pg rsd + us amps xt800.4 should probably fit the bill

i dunno.. i really have no clue and want a really clean install. and its a factory radio so i dunno.. i really want to try it but now with this car. or if i had someone there to make sure i didnt set anything on fire maybe =0)

Its almost impossible to set something on fire and if you take your time you probably could do a cleaner job then the shop would do.


Just make sure you disconnect the battery :)

I am only 18 and I installed a power wire from the battery to the trunk, rcas and remote wire from the head unit to the trunk and 2 rear speakers.

I am going to be installing front components too as soon as I get the money for them.

Its not very hard at all, if you get stuck somewhere just come on here and ask and the people here should be able to help you out :)
