    Welcome to the forum! I'd suggest if you really want some options to upgrade your system, you should tell us about what your budget is, what you already have, and what kind of truck.

    Welcome.


    Not to get on your case, But what you've provided is extremely vague.

    What do you want out of your system? What kind of music do you listen to? Very good quality listening experience or simply loud? What about head unit? Lots of bass?

    It's basically like walkin into a hardware store and saying you need a bolt. You can't expect people to spend their time giving you every option on the planet because you haven't taken the time to do your research or at least think about what you need

    Hah. Well, I mean daynm. He caught me on a particularly bad evening. I was working on quotes, and one job in particular needs a lot of homeowner decisions made so I can quote the correct material quantities. they don't know what they want....all they know is they want a price. I'm not a mind reader, and I'm certainly not going to quote a price for every option under the sun. Especially when I have my two boys under 3 sleeping on top of me in a chair while juggling a lap top.

    Kind of struck a nerve, and I may have taken it out on Lil' buddy here a bit.

    Sorry lil' buddy, but it still doesn't make it any less true.

    Apology people, I'm not really an audio person, it is the kiddos wanting some quality sound. Some bass will do but not that loud. Wifey told to spend like $400.

    BTW if it will help, the kiddos are 10 and 7 years old and like some rap music to sing along with especially when we are on road trips.

    They are going to stone me for this, but since you're on a tight budget....you might consider a hideaway sub and just doing some factory replacement door speakers.

    Perhaps if you have some left over change, consider sound dampening your doors
