    Looking for some guidance for a small intro build

    Hey guys, I'm looking to install a small "budget" system into my 4runner but I could really use the help and recommendations from actual audio guys. I just need something fairly simple.

    This much I know:
    1. I'm buying the Alpine IDA-X305 off Ebay - $230-240ish,
    2. Front speakers are 6.5, not sure what to buy, have about $120ish to spend,
    3. Leaving rear speakers for now,
    4. One 10" sub, not sure what type, I'll build a box similar to a Stealthbox that goes over the rear wheel well,
    5. Amp - no ideas what kind or size or anything. I'll probably try and find one used on Craigslist.

    So with that info...
    1. What kind of amp should I be looking for? What features should I look for?
    2. What fronts will give me the most bang for my buck?

    What's your budget, we need to know that before we can make suggestions.

    Re: Looking for some guidance for a small intro build

    OK, $120max for the fronts. Should I go with components? I had some JL Audios before and they were pretty good. Whatever I go with I'll buy new off Ebay. Open to suggestions or recommendations...

    The amp/sub is a bit tougher for a budget because I'll be looking on Craigslist. Info that would help me:
    1. would be what kind of amp(channels,size,etc) should I look at for powering a 10" sub? Or do I need to know exactly what sub before finding an amp?
    2. should I power the fronts with an amp as well?

    Is this amp any good? http://www.crutchfield.com/S-KedbSeo...-MRV-F345.html Found a used one for a 100 bucks. Would it be good enough to power front components and sub?

    My recommendation for a budget setup would be:

    Phoenix Gold RSd 6.5s
    Phoenix Gold RSdc 10
    MB Quart Discus 4 channel amp

    Run the components in 2 channel stereo mode off the front channels and wire your subwoofer's voice coils in series to present a 4 ohm load bridged off the rear channels.
