    Ok I made a thread a while ago about what I should put in my car. Well I never got around to getting any of that stuff and need your help again. I have a little over 2k but I want to spend about 2500 - 3000. Could you guys give me some ideas on what to get cause i'm a noob when it comes to car audio. Thanks.
