I am looking for suggestions, I presented my own ideas a couple months ago but realized I should probably just listen to what those who actually know what they are doing have to say.
Here is my situation.
I drive a pontiac grand prix
I have 2 5.25 inch components up front and 2 6x9"s in the rear deck.
I cannot spare any trunk space at all, so no subs.
I want to keep my head unit.
I am on a budget, preferably $300 but I can move that number if needed.
My music preferences are rock and metal - bands like Korn, Disturbed, Metallica, Helloween. I also listen to rock such as Breaking Benjamin, Green Day, Three Days Grace, Linkin Park, Red Hot chilli Peppers. The stock system *****, I just want to be able to listen to the music the way it was supposed to be.. loud. But I don't want distortion when I do. I have listened to the mark levinson system in a Lexus LS430, and honestly I don't know much about car audio, but thats the best I have heard? Can something with that type of clarity be done for my price?
Also, as stock the rear 6x9s only do bass and highs, I like this setup as it makes things feel evened out and not distorted from the back seat. If it is keepable I'd prefer to do that, but again if it is not.. thats fine.
