    Need to get a system on a budget.

    First off I'm glad I found this forum before I went out and got ripped off like I have in the past when I had money to waste. Since things are a little tight now, and I can't live without a decent system in my truck I thought I'd try and get some input before I go around to all the local audio places. I just got an 07 tahoe ltz with nav bose and all that comes stock with the car. I know I've got to do something about getting a subwoofer or two, and I'm hoping I can probably stick with the stock speakers and be okay. I've had tahoes in the past that I put a couple kicker solo baric 12s in and they hit hard, but it's been a good 7 or 8 years so I'm not sure if kicker and jl are still on the top or what might be a good alternative from that to save some money. As you can see I'm not that knowledgable when it comes to all this I just know I need some improvements and I'm trying to keep it around the $500 range. If you know any good places to go in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area or have any suggeestions I'd appreciate it.

    500$ is sufficient. Kicker and Jl may still be on top of the "mainstream" game, and are not bad by any means, but there is better and more cost effctive companies out there. But even if you insist on known companies, many people have been having success with the MB Quart DSC1500.1d, and for about 200$ is a good buy. 2 Type R's can probly be had for another 200$, although that only leaves 100$ for box and wiring....but thats just an example. There are others on here who know much more than I do and could give better suggestions
