    Im lookin for the best sound quality, loudness 2nd.

    What are your reccomendations for speakers, subs, amps, etc..?

    My trunk is very small..how much would custom sub enclousres cost?

    well, with $500 i'd focus on getting a headunit first. buy a good one that will last a while. figure around $250 for that. Then replace your speakers. You can buy a really nice set of component speakers (you'll probably need an amp to run these, not a huge one though). Then you can save more money for amps and subs.



    93 Oldsmobile Cutlass
    Headunit: Pioneer DEH 6400
    Speakers: JL Audio
    Subs: Elemental Designs 12" K
    Amps: Profile California 600
    Wiring: Scoshe/Phoenix Gold
    Encolsure: 1.5cf Ported Box tuned to 26 hz

    I def. say that you should first get a good head unit, somewhere in the $250 range, then go with speakers or a set of components, an amp for those, then worry about the bump in the trunk.
