    Trying to put together budget system

    Just got a new car and really need to update the stock system in it without spending a whole lot. So I am trying to put together a decent system on a small budget.

    Old and used is definitely fine as long as it works. Here is what I am looking to spend:
    6 1/2" Components: $60-70
    4-channel Amp: $50-60
    8" or 10" sub: around $50

    Let me know what you guys have. Thanks!

    Yeah, I'm not looking to win competitions or anything, just want it to sound better than my stock system. I've pieced together systems like this before, so I know it can be done. People always have old stuff laying around in their garage that they want to just get rid of.
