    Personally I'd take the 300M

    If you are planning on having room for subs, explorer all the way, but I would personally take the 300M over the firebird. I've ridden in one of those and they are ****in SWEET. My dad has a 2000 LHS, too, which is probably the pimpest car anyone in my family has owned.

    Is the pontiac a v6? If it is, I would go with the Expo, if not, the firebird.

    IMHO if you only have 1 vehicle it should be a truck.

    Well obviously I am going to say Firebird...lol

    You can do a really nice install with the Firebirds...

    The 300M's are nice too, and the Explorer, you could deck that out pretty nice also.

    thaks for all of the help, yes the firebird is only a 6 banger,
    ok well i thought about and im going to forget about the bird, seeing how it ***** in winters and only a 6er, so now what would a system like mine sound best in? the suv or the 300m?

    I like the way systems sound in SUV's better. Having a subwoofer in your trunk drastically lowers bass response. At least, in what I've seen. And it may depend on the car. I would personally rather go for the explorer than the 300M for a system.

    Give us some more details on both the Explorer and the 300M.

    I myself would probably take the Explorer...the customization options are endless.
