    mp3 player headunit
    2 6.5inch components
    10 inch sub
    and amp?

    I really don't know much about car audio. Just want something that sounds better than my crappy stock sound system. I listen to rap & hiphop but don't want to be shaking the neighborhood with my bass. Just better sound quality.

    much thanks!

    does circuit city sell any decent quality subs? They are having a sale where if you buy 2 subwoofers you get a free box.

    amp: I got no idea how to shop for this.

    head unit panasonic mp3 player: $140
    Does it matter what the stats on this are? I am getting a amp so as long as it plays mp3s I'm good?

    Well unless you plan on building the box yourself and doing the intall yourself, it might be hard to get all that gear for less than 500 dollars. I would probably look into getting a 4channel amplifier and running the front 2 channels to your speakers, and the rear two bridged to a subwoofer.

    Yeah that mp3 player should work fine.

    can you recommend a 4 channel amplifier?

    not looking to win car shows here, just make the ride a little nicer :)
