Firstly, thank you for taking the time reading my post and aid me.
I have had my setup now for about 2 years and I am looking to upgrade. Before I say my setup, I would like to say that I value clearness and quality over loudness every day of the week and am not afraid to increase my budget to accommodate my audio needs.
I am a novice when it comes to the details of the car audio world. Therefore, I would like to ask you, thee expert, what would you recommend me to upgrade (and why if I may ask)? I am currently only looking to upgrade one item, however, if an amp upgrade with a subwoofer upgrade would make a significant difference I will consider it.
