    Help building new system. Please and thank you.

    Budget = $800

    Head unit with decent options, sub that will get good and low(the smaller the better), components, and an amp or two to push everything. I can fab the box and everything else. I just figured I would get some different options from you good fellows. I get started on putting something together, then change my mind mid-way lol.

    Used is fine with me btw. Whatever is the better option. Thanks in advance.

    This will be going in an 08' Malibu btw. Also, the less room used the better. But I will sacrifice leaving a baby stroller at home for better sound. 2 year olds too chubby anyway, a walk or two could do her some good.

    Re: Help building new system. Please and thank you.

    This site is very helpful. They give very accurate reviews for high end, overall, and budget equipment

    Car Audio Reviews and Rankings - Bestcovery

    My recommendation for your system on the amount you have to work with (if you are going for great sound over
    what it looks like)

    Head unit - the alpine cde-123 doesn't look the best or have the greatest features with it, but it
    blows away anything near its price range in sound quality..

    Sub - the sundown subs are some if the best out there for the price. But I would consider the JL Audio 3w2 I believe its called.
    If you get a decent sub, having plenty of quality watts to push it makes all the difference. Getting a solid amp
    to power the sub is going to be the hardest part on your budget. A new amp that will do the job good that is brand new
    is going to take over 50% of your budget at least. Look around for used ones.
    My advice? Join in on other threads and talk to other people, there are some cool people on here that will
    help you out. Don't just post when you have a ? for yourself

    Amp - just read about an amp that you can get for $180 that is really surprising for all it will do for the price.
    The Boston acoustics 2200. It's 4 channels, don't remember all the specs, but I'm buying one. It can do 900 watts
    when bridged and power a sub well, or push 4 or 2 high quality speakers

    Speakers - Most important decision you will make in the system. You Must Get Component Speakers.
    A lot of full range speakers are nice, but components are on a completely different level. For these I would
    be patient because you will most likely have to buy used, but well worth it.

    Apologies for the novel, but I hope some of this advice was helpful

    Re: Help building new system. Please and thank you.

    Thanks for the responses guys. I know a little bit about whats hot and whats not. Ive been a avid lurker for a couple years. I just picked up a set of the ID CTX65CS's for cheap so im good there. I keep looking at the SA 10's. Would one get loud and low enough you think? And what amp/ amps would be decent two power it and the comps?

    I was obviously being sarcastic. Why so bitter? You take time out of your day to act like an old lady with a prolapsed uterine, when you could have simply stated an option. Like I said, I wasnt asking for advice on what to do, just opinions on what options to consider.
