yes do that, go into an audio shop, like here in chicago we have My favorite Rays, then ABC, then Soundwerks and sound unlimited. O well my suggestion to you is stay away from pioneers, go big at first and youll love it. Get some audiobahn or clif design interiors, sound good, clif sounds immaculate. Trust me on that. And then get an audiobahn or clif set of components, the whole thing should cost about 200 uninstalled, and see if you could get a deal at a sound shop. This is what i did, well sorta, i have audio bahn aluminums for the components, and couldnt be happier. But im not gettin enough treble so i need a 4 channel amp. Which i did buy just last night from my brother...(pics up at a later time). And im pushin 150+ decibels and im only gettin louder. cant wait to be Considered LOUD and be the definite loudest in my school. anyways pioneers are alright, but you could do so much better. ive had or heard all the items noted in this post. Any questions and i can help you out.
