    Im currently in the process of restoring a 1967 Mustang. I want to put a nice stereo system in it, but I cant decide what to put in. I wont lie, while I do know a bit about cars I know nothing about audio. I read through the stickies and some other basic guides, but still not really sure on what to get.

    Im looking to spend around ~$1000 total on the whole stereo system. I have no problem buying stuff online or anything like that. I just need someone to point me in the right direction to somewhere that lists basic setups around my budget. Thanks in advance if anyone could help me out.

    $1,550 For a system I think is very good as a daily-driver.


    If you want to keep it under $1000, then that can me done, as well:
    Alpine 9851 head unit - $220
    Alpine Coaxials - $100
    Elemental Designs e13Ov.2 - $195
    JL Audio e1800D monoblock - $380
    Wiring, fuse-block, etc - $75
    Sheet of Birch to make enclosure, misc hardware/carpet - $75

    $1,045 For a system very close to your budget. You can prolly thin down the extra $45 by finding better prices. I went off of crutchfield for a few, and MSRP for the rest.
