    i would .....like to get a sound system upgrade. but i need help on some choice for equipment.

    i would just like to have a 10'sub.
    im not a very knowledgeable on the audio systems for cars thats why i came here.

    so instead of just giving me brandnames and model numbers, give me some ideas on specs to look for in equipment.
    i live in mexico (im from canada) so i cant order from crutchfield they dont ship here.

    just need some advice on what to look for. but i would like a 10'sub
    anyother stuff im not sure what would sound good.
    im on a budget. and it will be gradual so im gonna start off with the installation kit for the car.(98escort4doorstandard)

    oh 1 last thing. my mom is heading back to canada so i will be able to get the install kit for the stereo but what one should i order. theres 2 at crutchfield one for 49.99 and another for 39.99 can you help me guys

    ;)

    I think the 39.99 one is for if you don't have premium sound, and the 49.99 is for premium sound. If you have a CD changer in the trunk, then you have premium sound.

    Upgrading the radio will give you the best bang for your buck, IMO. it will also make it easier to add the 10" sub down the road.

    Sony isn't to bad but there is better. I have a sony HU and amp, my 2 10's are some random brand. For the HU just get one that you like.

    I agree with pex 100% upgrade the Hu first, it is the worst part in the stock setup.

    pioneer, sony, alpine, kenwood and JVC would be the brands I recommend, in no particular order.

    as for other specifics, just figure out what you want it to do - Ipod hookup, bluetooth for your phone, MP3 CD playback, AUX input, etc.

    pioneer or alpine HU's hands down the best IMO.

    i have 4 shallow design 6.5's i would sell you got 60 + shipping. two are mint the other 2 have some cosmetic damage. all work flawlessly. come with grills however they are two different set. but if you need them you cna have them.
