    Yeah the phone book is a good place to start. That's been a pain in the a$$ because I moved here from OK last year and have no idea where these places (burbs) are at. Then I don't want to drive half way across country and find out the places ***** butt. That's why I'm counting on you guys. So any good places that you recommend just give me the name and I will be happy to take it from there.
    Thanks

    Schaumburg is a nice area. Kinda $$$ though. But since we didnt know the area (chicago) we didnt really want to take a chance on a area unless it looked real nice if you know what I mean. Yeah I live just off golf about 4 miles past woodwield. Barrington and Golf to be exact. So Elgin is close enough for me.

    thats what i had planned on doing. i cant what to get the hu in. proly gonna do it tomorrow. depending on if i can stand the cold. i still need a couple decent amps for lil cash. i have read good ratings on us acoustics. am considering getting a couple from zeb.com. i have 2 chrome plated solo 10's and 1 10" comp vr. (all are the old round ones but are still brand new in box) and a alpine 6 channel that im gonna use to power mids and highs. not sure what 6.5's and 4x6's i wanna use yet. gonna build my own box and amp rack and install it all under the back seat in my truck. might be tight fit but im sure i can make it work.

    for the 4*6's i recomend plates. (not the ovel speaker) they are a whole lotcleaner sounding and can handel higher volumes. any decent 6.5 will sound nice in your doors. being that they are fairly large and hollow. i love truck systems!! i had a 98 sonoma reg. cab that i fit 2-10" pioneer's behind the seat, 3-way pioneer 6.5" in the doors (in the wifes truck now) and 4*6 pioneer oval speakers (they were ok till you turned it up) i drive a camry now and have some kicker comps that friggin rock.
