    What should i get?

    So i have a complete stock system, and i want to upgrade my speakers (door speakers and the ones next to back seats) to something that has good quality and are a lot better than the stock system. also i want to add a small amp to give a little more power to them. I just want to hear some suggestions for now and the price of it all together, thanks.

    camaro or firebird? do you want a sub in the back? i put the eu700's in the sail panels (rear seats) and they sound awesome on the stock amp. im putting the infinity 62.7i's in the door panels when they get here.

    6 1/2's will fit, some require a spacer like the eu700 subs. with some work you could fit some 8's.

    just depends on how u want ur sound...
    if u want it done somewhat professionally...

    u could get a good 1 stage system setup...
    two tens
    head unit
    door speakers and middle speakers
    two amps

    depending on the box u want..
    ur looking at installed...
    uh...2k

    but it would be walmart material..
    shop around at audio shops and see what they are asking

    I paid about 2k for my system, but I did most of the work myself. If I had it profesionally installed, I was looking at around $2700-$3000.

    i am not looking for a complete system yet, just want to change my stock speakers to something better and add a small amp to bring everything out of the new speakers. after that i will save up more money and get a head unit and have that go to the 2 speakers in the trunk..

    they hit pretty hard for a stock amp as long as you set it up like this:

    youd be looking at $130 for the pair, then youd just need some nice speakers for the front. i cant believe how nice these sound on the monsoon amp.

    i got the infinity kappa 62.71 to go in mine. thats because the tweeters are built into the speakers in the camaros. since your tweeters are separate you have a much wider selection.

    jl audio is a good speaker..
    sounds could kinda pricy..

    i have i think 5.25 in the doors= 250
    and 6.5 in the back seat sides= 250

    with two 10 jl audio= 300
    fiberglass painted black box in hatch firing up and in a little..
    with two amps..one kicker 400 watt and then an acoustic 320 to run doors and middle..

    very good sounding cyrstal clear and not all bass...very evened out hard hitting stereo.

    Well, this is what I decided to got with

    Pioneer P6900UBB deck, real nice for the Buck. And will control my phone, since it is a mass storage device.

    I am goint to leave the doors alone for right now since the stock speakers are almost brand new(the guy before me never even turned the readio on).

    New 6 1/2"s in the back (most likely 60 Dollar Alpines).

    I am not going to use the 4"s in the back at all.

    As far as the sub, I already bought a Infinity Basslink, but I kind of want more sound. I am thinking about going with a JL W7 8" to put in the trunk area.

    I still have some awesome fosgate 12", so a full trunk box would be cool. But I just can not find a place to hide my amp, I dont want it on the trunk panel.


    As far as the amp, it just depends on the sub. The rest will be powered by the deck.
