We can't set your price......that's something you need to tell us so we can suggest what will fit within that price range.
Are you budgeting for a new deck? Just want to add a sub (bad idea)? New speakers? Everything? Maybe just deck and speakers for now then sub later?
You have to budget an additional couple of hundred when you talk about adding an amp to the mix for the wiring kit and all subsequent audio cables.
I don't know about the SE, but do you not have tweets in the dash up near the windshield? I have a 2001 Accord EX and mine has the rear deck, front doors, and then 2 in the dash as well, but the might not have upped the system in the SE's........
Let us know first and foremost what your budget is. You can 'want' everything but if you don't have the coin it's not gonna happen..........start there then we can help.

well i was looking at the polk momos 12 inch 2124s and the price seems good for them, 2 for 99 each at one site. but i dunno how much an amp is cause i dunno what to look for in them. i dont wanna spend too much more than 600. im only 17 but im making around 150 a week so i can afford some. im not sure if it has the tweeters in the dash, i know it has a little vent spot thing but im not going outside at 1:00 to check right now. how much would an amp be to run 2 of the polk momos, 2124 i think. and what is dvc? there are like 2 that r the same price but 1 is dvc. im looking for subs and speakers. but i am more concerned with subs cause u know, gotta show off some times. but id like to stay under 600 if possible and im fairly sure ill go with the momos unless theres something bad about them? ill get back to u on the speaker when i get home from work tomorrow. but man i dunno if ne of yall went to the nationals but there was this one truck with 4 amps and 4 subs all in the cab with the pipe running the air to the cab, man that thing pushed like crazy! i mean my hair was shaking just walking by.

You can't 'show off' by just adding an amp/sub to a stock system. You can be heard and feel it, but I don't think it's the way to go IMO.......

im not just wanting to add a sub and amp, i want speakers too, i want a better sound but also a fairly loud bass/

and what is dvc? and if i go with 2 12' momos the 2124, should i get dvc or the non dvc, and what amp. and what r some good but not so expensive speakers?
