    lol, yea i wasnt impressed with the beats either, but the idea was what i liked.
    its going into quite a large and roomy interior.
    familiar with 1964 impala? its a two door, but like i said, i could live inside it.
    i cant see myself spending more than 2000 for a sound system,
    but dont let that keep any options from being said
    my goal is to have an awesome experience everytime i hear a song, lol
    just like if it were being performed in the vehicle

    Well how much of that trunk are you willing to give up? If your looking for a pure SQ system then a large substage wont be needed anyway

    you mean like multiple sized subs for all the ranges?
    i have a big trunk i could give up a portion of it (the side fender wall area, and where the spare tire usually goes, its about 4feet**and some inches wide by like 1 foot and some change

    No that isnt needed... You will have to get exact dimensions for us at some point to see exactly what sort of subs you can provide the space for...

    i think he means something that's ridiculously powerful won't be necessary if you're goal is sound quality.
