The days of popping in a new head unit like it's mandatory are over. I would try a nice line out converter into a 4-channel amplifier on the stock speakers and add a small ported subwoofer system with a level adjustment knob to put in the dash.

    There are some good options out there for a high quality LOC. The one I'd go with is the Cache COE6. Then I'd run a Precision Power P900.4 for the speakers. JBL MS-62C components fit into the stock locations. JBL P662 coaxials for the rear or use that money to improving the installation. By improving the installation I would put money into sound deadening. At least put on some vibration damper around the speakers and in the trunk where needed. You don't need to cover everything but just use good product selectively. My preferred vibration damper is Alpha Damp. It's currently on sale for 50% off at diyma.com.

    A new product that I hope gains traction is the JBL MSBassPro SQ. This is a self-powered bass enclosure that's engineered on every level so the components perfectly compliment each other. It's about 2 feet wide by 1 foot tall and 1 foot deep so it doesn't take up much trunk space. It's also easy on your alternator but it puts out a hell of a lot of bass for only 300W RMS. I installed one in a Civic sedan for personal friends who are constantly listening to music and they love the sound quality.

    Once you figure ~$150 for a good single sub, $75-100 for a custom ported box, ~$200 for a good amp you're already looking at the same price for the MSBassPro SQ. You can add the MS-WBC wireless bass knob to put up front.

    COE6 ~$115 from me
    P900.4 $200 shipped from me
    MS-62C $200 from me
    P662 $150 from me
    MSBassPro SQ $450 from me
    You're at $1125 for parts for a really nice balanced sounding system that will put a smile on your face every time. Add in your wiring kit of choice for a dual amplifier system(4 gauge) and labor. I'm confident you'd have a better setup than a lot of people.
    Way to jump on the new kid and sell him some bullshit. A MSBassPro "That's engineered on every level"? LMAO

    I would look around, read a lot, learn some and when you actually get whatever car you decide on Then I would look at my options. A lot can change in 6 months. Especially when your young.

    At least spend 30 seconds on Google before you completely dismiss a product you know nothing about.

    Re: Brand new to this audio game. Looking for suggestions?

    hmm Idk, anything we suggest on here is probably going to sound better than anything your friends at school have and will sound way better than stock. I feel like we sometimes jump on the sq thing to quickly when people say they want it to sound good. no one is going to come on here and say they want their system to sound bad. The speakers and amps you choose play a small roll in the sound quality you get, the most important thing when it comes to sound quality is the install. How familiar are you with installing car audio? This is a brand new car youre going to be working on and I dont want to scare you but most of the time newer cars are harder to work on. I would advise that you stick around these forums and browse through the sections and try and learn as much as you can. If you took that 1000 and looked through the used section and bought from members with good feedback, you could get a much. much better system
