I'm trying to get help... I am trying to upgrade my audio ... I want 2 10" kickers in the back , and I guess upgrade the interior speakers (I have the 6 speaker package)

I'm trying to see the best way about going about this ... I live in Jax FL and I definetly can't install myself so does best buy offer good prices ? I am trying to find a ballpark range for what I'll need to spend ...

And any package recommendations ? The thing with speakers/audio is that there are so many options I am clueless , and I don't want to overspend . I think best buy does installs so I'm prob going to use them ... I don't really want to replace the head unit , just want 2 10's / box / amp / and whatever speakers I need inside.

Any help appreciated !!
Whatever you do DO NOT GO TO the audio shops on Beach Blvd or Atlantic Blvd, I have had friends go to them in the past and they did piss poor hack jobs, and the guys were drinking and smoking weed while working on his car. I have no problem what people do in their free time, just don't do it while working for a client. Anyway, I have had stuff installed at Best Buy at the St johns Towncenter before when I had my mustang and they did a good job, I would personally like to do all my own work, but I don't always have time. Best buy would suffice. If you want to do a package, do not buy cheap speakers and amps and wiring kits, save to get better items, trust me it will pay off in the end. Myself I have Boston components in the doors and a Focal 4 channel running them, what I want to do is put in a JL W6 or W7 for the sub with a custom encloser and a nice Focal amp to power it. You could always go Alpine Type R's, JL's, Rockford, infinity for Your choices for subs and or components, and pick up a nice wiring kit to hook it all up.
