I'm new to this so I figured I would consult this forum for some advice before I wasted any of my money!
I have a 2006 chevy silverado extended cab truck in which I would like to upgrade the stock sound system.
I'm not looking for a top of the line sound system, but as a musician, I would appreciate a system which could play my favorite tunes with some clarity, because, lets face it, chevy sells a pretty Sh!tty stock system.
Having some other finical commitments, I'm not looking to upgrade the whole system at once. I will probably do it in two stages. In the end I would like to upgrade the four speaks, the head unit, and install a powered sub under the rear seat. For the first stage, I was thinking of upgrading the four speakers, because it sounds like the front drivers side speaker is blown. Then for the seconded stage, I intend to upgrade the stock head unit, and add a powered sub.
Like I said earlier, I am new to this, so I would really appreciate some advice on what gear I should buy.
One of my buddies recommended that I go with all kenwood excelon gear. He said that it will give me a pretty clear sound, and not kill my budget.
I was thinking of putting these in the front http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu..._KFC-X173.aspx
and these in the back http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu..._KFC-X460.aspx
What is the consensus on those, or is there something better I could use? Also, any recommendations on which head unit and powered sub I should use, or any general system recommendations?
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!
