The time has finally come for me to start working on my own car again. It's a 1990 MX6 in pretty good shape. Good enough for me to want to clean it up, re-do most of the interior, and most importantly, put a nice setup in it as it IS my daily driver.
Here's the strange part (maybe.): I don't want to use a bunch of new stuff. I'm going to try to stay under $1000 for the entire stereo project, which i think should be more than enough. I'm not looking to win competitions, i'm not looking to duplicate my home 2-channel rig, i'm just looking for something that will sound nice on long drives. I want it to be at least SEMI period-correct, barring the head unit (which will still be older, or at least look older, but i'm not messing with a 1990 HU).
I've got my heart set on a Denon head unit, silver face, copper chassis, no onboard amp, and orange backlighting.
What should i look for in terms of speakers? I have 5" speakers in the dash, 6.5s in the back deck, and the car came with a funky subwoofer under the passenger seat from factory that will probably be removed unless it turns out that it sounds decent. (Doubt it.)
So... total of what i need:
Pair of 5s
Pair of 6.5s
Single 10" sub or two 8s.
Another amp for the sub(s).
I would really like to get a 5-channel amp so i don't have to mess with trying to hide two, but i'm not sure that i'll be able to get anything worthwhile within my budget if i try to go that route.
Again, would like to keep this 90s style. :)
Thanks in advance!
