I would NEVER get sony speakers. Get speakers from a speaker company. In general, you'll never see one company that is good at making everything.

Sony's amps are so-so, for the average Joe that is.

Sony's only good at CD players.

I would, and did, get a Sony MD player once, only beause Alpine did not make it at the time. But then, thankfully, it got stolen shortly after Alpine started to make one. If this one gets stolen, I'll just get an Alpine CD player. Alpine no longer makes MD, and I think Sony still does. But I wasn't happy with the Sony when I did get it...so, I guess i am not recommonding anything Sony at all!

I don't think you'll be able to do a full system for less then a grand, the parts alone will be more then that to improve on the stock system.

One LAST word of advice, and this is a MUST:

Concentrate your buget on the equipment first, NOT the install!! Your choice of equipment does not justify the install. Does a Ferrari come with a 140 HP engine??? What good is it to show off junk?? What good is it to "See" your system, when a system is designed to "listen" too?

Of course, your system is only as good as the install, but you're adding extra dough for cosmetic upgrades on the install, not on SQ & reliability. Add the extra dough on better electronics 1st. No one is going to wanna look in your trunk anyways... except thieves....
