I'm assuming you just got your license. And that means that you are 16, right?


Wait a year until you are actually a good driver before you upgrade the sound system.

The best thing to do would be to hit up you local car stereo installers and ask lots of questions. They wold be able to hook you up with the right components according to your needs. If you ask around a few different shops, you can get a good idea of the costs and products involved.

It really depends on what you are looking to upgrade. Radio's have different better brands than speakers. Different levels of speakers (Low, Mid, and High frequency) have different manufacturers that excel.

Are you just looking to get more sound out of the stock speakers or are you looking to have a gorilla in your trunk?

well the first thing you should do is get a new radio. go to best buy and check em out. If your just trying to get something that sounds good just about any of them there will do and the best thing is you can test em out there to and see which ones you like.

Most of the time that is really all you need in the newer cars to make it sound 100% better because the stock radios dont have as much watts going to the speakers in there.

I really haven't seen too many newer cars that don't have really good sound in them already though

Did he ask for your opinion? I'm kinda sick of this mentality around here where everyone forces their views onto people when he really didn't want to hear about that. If he was asking if he should upgrade his stereo, sure, that's fine.

Anyway, back to the topic. How much do you want to spend? That really defines what you can/can't do with it.

**Also you can look at this:
