    Alright, I'm buying a receiver, 4 speakers, a sub, and an amp for my new truck.

    It's a 2007 Colorado, so it isn't very big.
    I'm trying to keep it under 700, which I did.

    Anything I should change out, or reconsider?

    It's a truck that is extended cab, if I buy 2, I will have the whole back full, and when I take my fourwheeler and dirtbike places, I need places to put shit besides the bed.

    I could go with two, but I will go with one now, see how it is, and maybe get two in a month or so.

    seriously that deck will break in a month if your lucky for it to last that long. go buy the entry level alpine if you want a cheap deck, and it will be less money. dual is crap.

    Front or back seats?

    I am thinking about taking the back seats totally out for more room, right now, their are little sorry ass excuses for a "toolbox" which is like 5 inches thick and holds the back seats up when they fold down, and I am taking those out and putting in a box there.

    It really isn't big enough for anything under the seat.
