    Ok, I was looking online and came across some kits on tacotunes.com that sounded pretty good, well at least on the computer. And it was a whole kit all six speakers and a sub.

    Alpine type R mid range speakers and alpine 150 watt x 4 amp for doors
    Alpine, JL Audio, or Rockford Fosgate sub and Alpine 600 watt x 1 amp.

    Just one of many ways and entirely opinion based.

    I wouldn't recommend Tacotunes based on other reviews I've seen. Search Tacotunes on this site and decide for yourself.

    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    Focal speakers sound great. They have some nice setups for pickups.

    My opinion is that it's all about the speakers. One deck pretty much sounds as good as another.

    I went ahead and put a small 10" sub in later on and really noticed the improvement - wow!
