hi yall, need help b/c i really dont know anything about car audio. evidentaly neither does best buy 'pros'
i drive a 2001 saturn l200.
the front doors got Pioneer SPS-17C2 in them.
the back doors got Alpine something. i dont know the exact model. i looked at them and all i saw written on them was 'type s' so i searched it, and found this:
and thats exactly what they look like.
trunk got an Insignia amp(not sure on exact model) and Kenwood 12s.
some pics of trunk:

i dont know the model of the insignia amp. all it says on it to distinquish itself is insignia on top. it came in a insignia sound package i bought at best buy a few years ago along with 2 insignia 12 subs. which have since been replaced since they kept blowing. dont know what i was thinking even buying insignia in the first place.
what i'm looking for and need help/advice with:
first of all i want to upgrade my head unit. i currently have a JVC KD-AR260. its good and all but i am sick of my cd's always skipping and just using cd technology in general. i am going to be buying an ipod touch soon, so i want a head unit with ipod hookup capabilities. i'm thinking about just having some velcro on my gear shift and just control the music from the ipod. so i dont have to keep changing cd's and worrying about them skipping. so i need a recommendation of a good head unit with ipod hookup capabilities, doesnt have to be the BEST, just something thats good quality and nice. needs to have a remote too.
what i have heard on my system was that the speakers in my front doors are bad speakers. i have also heard i should get another amp to power the door speakers. what should i do? please help. should i keep the insignia amp powering the kenwood subs? should i use the insignia amp to power the door speakers and get a new amp to power the subs? or should i get rid of the insignia amp and get 2 new amps, or 1 new amp? are the speakers in my back doors good? i'm sorta lost on what to do b/c like i said i dont know anything about this kinda stuff which is why i came here for help. i am done getting the advice of the 'pros' at best buy/circuit city.
im not trying to have the best system around or anything, just want to upgrade what i have to get the best out of it. im not looking to spend money out of my *** either.
and i sorta need some advice kinda quick, because i have a 10% off coupon for ebay i want to use on this. please help...
