    adding beat to my ride

    Wassup Yall, I have a 2002 Montero Sport. I have been going stock for a while but now I decided that I want to upgrade. I basically want a nice clean sounding system with nice mids and highs, I already have an Alpine CD9825 that plays my Ipod and XM. I don't need to have it loud. My budget is to stay around the $1000 range. I just want to upgrade the the fronts and maybe a nice humble sub. Can you recommend me if I should go with components and what brand. I was at Cartoys yesterday and was eyeing on the Focals they say the Eclipse compos are nice also but was not setup for demo. Also Im not sure what to go with a 4 channel amp with the bass for have to seperate amps one for the 4 speakers and one for the sub Will using the dynamat for the fronts make a difference for my mids? Can you recommend me good sub and amps. Ultimately I want to have the best value for the dollar. If it goes over a $1000 thats okay I guess but I want to stay close to it as possible.

    thanks in advance

    The Focals are great, as are:
    DLS UR6: http://www.infinitecaraudio.com/cgi-...talogno=DLSUR6
    OZ Audio Matrix Elite: http://www.speedsound.com/caraudio.a...ific=jnhrhmgrk
    Image Dynamics: http://www.cardomain.com/item/IDSCXS64
    Boston Acoustics Pro6.5: http://www.woofersetc.com/product.as...7&1=238&3=1226

    Aswell as Morel, Rainbow, Arc Audio, etc etc.

    For amps; about anything within your budget would work. I personally would go for a single 4-channel amp. For great deals, check out the:

    MB Quart Reference: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-gZc9cfi...9RAA4200&g=120
    Kicker KX850.4:http://www.cardomain.com/item/KIC04KX85042
    Kicker SX700.4: http://www.cardomain.com/item/KIC04SX70042

    Subs:

    Image Dynamics ID12v3: http://www.cardomain.com/item/IDSID12V3D2
    Soundsplinter 12" Rl-i: http://soundsplinter.com/rli_series_...subwoofer.html
    OZ Audio Matrix Elite 12" if you can find the D2 version

    Blah...for some reason I'm drawing a blank on more subs......
