    Some Help For a Noob

    I recently bought a small Hyundai coupe, with crap speakers. I'm looking for a small, moderately priced, portable upgrade. (When I say portable, I mean i can pull it out if needed, not installed into anything)


    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Jacob

    Yep, just replace the stock speakers and see were that gets you. If you still want more lowend then pick up a single 8 or 10. Those smaller boxes would be easy to remove if you needed the space back.

    Re: Some Help For a Noob

    Maybe I should clarify. I couldn't tell you the difference between a speaker, a amp, a deck, or a sub. I know nothing about car audio.. I would like a nice bass boost, and some volume. Theres plenty of room in the trunk, could I put something in there?

    Re: Some Help For a Noob

    ya.. you need to replace your door speakers with some coaxials or something. Depending on your door size to make it simple and cheap pioneer make some good seats of coaxials for around 70 bucks a set and it will sound ALOT less foggy and increase your volume about 50%

    Re: Some Help For a Noob

    If you want bass ya its going to be more trouble. have to get a small (sub) bass speaker in a box and an amplifier to power it and run wires etc etc...

    Re: Some Help For a Noob

    In most cases for quick cheap situations grab some cheap stock replacement speakers...then grab a 200-500 watt amp and throw a 10" woofer in the back.

    If you really need a person to point out everything then your best bet is to pay up the extra cash and let a local shop help you and have it done right.
