This is the first piece of aftermarket car audio equipment I've ever purchased and need some advice. I've just begun to put together my first 2 channel music system and figured I might as well upgrade my car's music capabilities while I am at it (a music nut tired of mediocre sq)
I'm currently using an aftermarket cd player that my brother had installed when he owned the car, but it's a POS so I know I will have to replace that. From what I read the SR5250 is quite the car speaker, what I need to know is what else am I going to need to have music nirvana on wheels...is an amplifier absolutely necessary? Will I also need a sub? I would love some suggestions on potential head units as well as anything else you guys think I need to consider.
Spent $300 on the SR5250s and would like to keep the complete system under a grand if possible. Thanks for any and all advice/suggestions!
