    Building an audio system, need recommendations

    I have a 05 Nissan Altima without BOSE system

    I'm looking to replace the HU and the speakers with an amp all at once. Once I get some more money I would like to put in either two 10' or two 12' subs into the trunk, but that won't be for awhile.

    So as of right now I want to focus on the HU and the speakers and this is what I have picked out so far. Just add the www. in front of the links

    crutchfield.com/p_105AVX640/JVC-KW-AVX640.html?tp=5684&tab=review&rvm=ShowAllt
    I like the usb, touch screen and the built in NAV

    crutchfield.com/p_500SPS600/Alpine-SPS-600.html?tp=105&tab=review&rvm=ShowAllt
    I'll be putting 2 of these in the front and 2 in the back. Crutchfield says they fit in the front but they don't specify about the back. The reviews are good and the price is reasonable but if there are any other recommendations please feel free to give them to me.

    crutchfield.com/p_500MRPF300/Alpine-MRP-F300.html?search=MRP-F300_4_channel_Alpine_amp&skipvs=T
    This will power my 4 speakers, 75watts would be ideal but I think 50watts is fine without spending too much money. Recommendations would be nice here also.

    As for the future sub, would it be difficult adding a second amp?

    Any advice, information or anything like that regarding the parts I have picked out or installation would be nice.

    Thank you in advance

    The one thing I will tell you guys with a first post like this.... Read around here for awhile and find out what some opinions on so called "good" companies like Alpine are and then read of what some truely good companies are... What is your budget and goal?

    incase you want to save a little
    JVC KW-AVX640 In-Dash Video Receivers (With Screen) at Onlinecarstereo.com
    Alpine MRP-F300 4 Channel Amplifiers at Onlinecarstereo.com

    and im going to say what everyone else will say. just get a really nice front stage and you wont rear any rear speakers

    For the head I'm looking to spend no more then $400
    for the speakers and amp anything around $350.

    I don't have the money to put in subs yet. I'm planning on doing that after I have the HU and the speaker set up for awhile

    I'd say search around the classifieds if you dont mind buying used. Otherwise check other sites. Crutchfield is pretty high.

    Okay, I'll do that.

    I think I'll still get the HU from crutchfield though just because they include the harnesses and everything else.
