    upgrading truck sound system

    I have a 09 silverado crew cab with factory radio and speakers. I don't know if i want to put a box under the rear seats or not but I do want some nice sound and clarity.. what are my options for good mids and highs? As for my budget i don't really have one but I don't want to spend a fortune

    Re: upgrading truck sound system

    Lots of greats brands I have a pair of focal 165s and they sound great with decent mid bass and tweeters are on the bright side. Paid less than 200 bucks for them. I would say whatever brand you go with that you invest In a nice head unit and amp so the signal is clean from source to your ears.

    Good luck and hope you find something you love riding and listening to

    07-UP GM CREW CAB 2-10" VENTED W/ AMP RACK

    Some of the best sub boxes for trucks bar none. Don't get those cheap pre fabs found in audio shops and eBay. They sound like ****.
