    what to buy?

    I'm new to this site and i'm not too familiar with car audio. I'm 16 years old and i recently purchased a 1995 chevy beretta. I bought it from my boss and he took the back seats out and put a box in it with 4 15's. he gave me a planet audio 2250 mono block amp for the subs, thats it for the subs. the reason im here is because i dont know what highs and mids to buy. I was thinking of buying a pair 6x9's and getting a pair of tweeters, but i was also thinking of buying everything seperate ( Tweeters, midrange speakers, etc.). I understand this system isn't a "Rookie's" system thats why im being real careful of what I buy. Please someone give some advice ASAP! thanks in advance.

    Re: what to buy?

    what you need is a set of components ,separate mids ,crossovers, and tweets .also what are you considering for an amp for the components ? as you'll need one to power them to keep up with the bass

    I was going to buy a seperate amp for the highs and mids, a planet audio 1600watt 4 channel. keep in mind, I wont have the bass all the way up all the time. when im not booming i want a decent system to listen to while driving

    for 200 you can get a new amp that would be better than the planet audio amp ,the ph 4100 or the ppi 900.4 would be a couple of great choices ,then the components will need to take 100 rms each side for either of these amps
