Ok, this system is for a friend, who has a 2006 Chevrolet Colorado Ext. Cab.

He already has a brand new Pioneer 6800MP Deck, so the cost of the deck is not necessary, the $500 is just for a sub, amp(s), and speakers.

He needs a 12" decent sub (between sound quality/loud), a box (could be built), an amplifier (or two, depending on if we can power the front speakers and the sub with one or not), and a pair of component speakers.

Plus the cost of wires and stuff like that. So, $500 for:

Component Speakers
Amplifier(s)
Subwoofer
Wires
Box

Installation will be done by a friend in the business.

Let me know what you guys can come up with. He isn't looking for mega-bass, or mega sound quality, you know, something in between (SQL is it?)

hey there, wassup dude?

That's pretty low budget to work with. I can't suggest crap, so here's the closest I can come up with for good quality gear for under $600 before wires and box.

Alpine MRV-F345 amp for 75w/ch x 2 plus 300w for $250
(eBay or ikesound.com)

Alpine SPX-177R components for $208 shipped new on eBay (link below for like new set for less)

Cool but do you think I should get the ID or the IDQ? Which will sound better?

Anyone else?

The IDv3 is less money than the IDQv2.

The IDv3 has a little better low-end, but the IDQv2 has a little better SQ.

For the given budget system, go with the IDv3. It still has good SQ, so don't worry.
