    I honestly know very little about car audio, but the stock speakers in my 06 double cab are just not what I want. I plan on building a basic system. I don't need tailgate rattling bass, or competition sound, just something that sounds better. The down side is I only have about $1,000 to spend. I already have a head unit, but other then that anyone got any suggestions?

    Seems like alot of guys on here like JL Audio. I went ahead and purchased this set up:

    JL Audio VR650- CXi
    JL Audio XR650-Csi
    JL Audio 13TW5 subwoofer
    JL Audio 300/4
    JL Audio 500/1v2

    HU is a Kenwood DNX9960 but you've already got your HU. If you don't care much about the bass, I'd just go with the 650 speakers and get the 300/4 amp. You can find this stuff used on Ebay. Just have to be careful who you purchase from. I got my speakers and 300/4 for $400 total. The 500/1v2 is a little more and the 13TW5 is expensive and then you'll need to have Marv or someone build you a box.

    If you've got the headunit already though, I'd recommend going to JL Audio's site, look under the speakers at discontinued, find a set that suits your needs then look on Ebay, Craigslist or here for a guy selling a set that isn't damaged. Install yourself and you'll be good to go.

    Hope that helps a little more.

    Oh but you can. Not everything JL makes is awesome or right for your system depending on what you are trying to do.

    I think the self proclaimed "auido noob" would be fine going with JL. ^I'm sure the stuff listed above would sound great.
