If you want to cut down on price then buy your stuff on ebay. Don't settle for crappy equipment. The head unit is nice but the amps and speakers are crap. Save money by doing it right the first time. Good luck

The headunit and speakers are fine for an entry level system. The amp though is no longer made as the Nemesis amps have been discontinued. If you want HiFonics, I recommend the Zues(Basic), Interactive Ausio or the XX series(High end mass power), but they do cost. Also look into Diamond Audio amps as they have some nice products to meet your needs.

Give me a budget and $ amount and I can help you with a system.

You can also check ebay for Eclipse amps (PA series) They sound AMAZING and you can pick them up for cheap.

for the budget you have listed, you should get infinity kappa's off ebay, and power them off the headunit. installing an amp is going to hurt your budget big time, since you'll need to buy power cables, rca cables, terminals. That could easily destroy your budget depending on the kind of cables you buy.

Something like this for the front:

Then you can choose a 2 or 3 way kappa setup for the rear

Easily fit your budget, and get you much better sound too.

Next setup up, i would get Diamond hex or Infinity Perfects... off ebay ~$200-350
