    I’m looking to upgrade all my audio. I got in touch with mr. Marv and having him to build me a box for a single 10. I’m looking for some component speakers and amp. What do people recommend. I haven’t been into audio in 15 years.

    That will buy a nice set of speakers for the front. Replace the headunit when you get more disposable cash.

    I’d get the best pair of fronts I could for now then I’d spend 150-175 on a brick amp such as the kicker key or if you don’t mind using some space in the back near your sub an amp from JL audio such as JD series is a really solid amp for the money. I’ve actually just added a jd amp to my setup and am very imporessed. With oem headunit look for higher sensitivity ratings for your speakers. 91db+

    That’s probably a good amp too. I have the 1600w mono block of same series just sitting around and actually in my marketplace thread for sale. Those seem to be highly rated and thought of amps and I love my Kenwood head unit so you’re definitely on the right track

    Both amp and head unit has good reviews. My sub will be a image dynamics idq4 v4. I think it will be a nice all around setup.
