Focal and hertz abbr two of the best brands out right now for car Audio.
Coming in around 1200 dollars a pair. They require a sound processor to sound best. But for a good price I suggest American bass sq 6 1/2 s or soundstream. sorry but jl is over priced

Ok, so i decided instead of goin with speakers, i'm goin to get a single 10" sub. I'm keeping the factory Blaupunkt HU and I was wondering, would I still need a line out converter or does the factory hu come with amp preouts?

You will still need to get the convertor, if the car came with a factory amp. It will be harder to pull off

I don't believe my car has an amp because I don't have a factory sub. Also how many watts could the stock HU put out? I'm thinkin about gettin a 200w amp and 300w rms sub. Obviously nothing too crazy but just want a lil boom in my ride. Thanks for the advice.

From what ive seen, the stock HU puts out like 10-15 per speaker. for a total of 50-60w.

Adding a sub is definately a good way to get some more boom. I highly recommend getting a different headunit though, even a $120 kenwood or sony unit will get better sound than the blapunkt unit, and its easier to hook up a new amp/sub to a aftermarket headunit. Not to mention giving you aux inputs and other such fun things.

Ya thats definatly true. Im kinda pissed i only got a 200w amp tho since the sub is 300 rms. It was a package deal for a good price so i went for it. I guess i could always swap amps down the road. How hard is it to install a HU?

They are pretty easy to install.
