    Me & my ole lady just got a new '04 Chevy Trailblazer which I need to install a sweet car audio system.

    I have researched this forum and have this idea for a setup-

    HU - Stock, my ole lady doesn't want to change it
    Front Door (6.5") - CDT CL-6X ($45)
    Rear Door (6.5") - CDT CL-6X
    Subwoofer - 1 10" Alpine Type-R ($90 at Circuit City)
    Box: Q Logic Small Truck Box ($50 at CC- again, ole lady doesn't want a big sub/box taking up the cargo room)
    6.5" Amp: old Kenwood 4x60 Watt Amp (2 yrs old, not excelon)
    Sub Amp: MTX Thunder 282 ($90 from CC)
    Extras: 4 Guage Amp Kit off ebay, Dynamat (2 speaker kits and 1 license plate kit)


    This is what I believe I should put together. Does anyone have any better ideas keeping in the price range for each component?

    The only component I would consider spending more on would be the 6.5" speakers since I have Alpine Type X (SPX-177A) 6.5" components (front) & Alpine SPS-629s (rear) in my car (Mits Galant) and could switch them into this car and get the CDT CL-61A's for my car [​IMG] with a pair of CDT CL-6X in the rear of the Galant. Which do you think are better the CDT CL-61As or Alpine Type-Xs? How good do the cheaper CL-6's sound? Better than Alpine Type-Rs, Polk dB, etc.?

    Also, in the future I'd like to upgrade to a head unit that I could watch DVDs on in the front seat- what product should I keep my eye on? Is a LCD head unit with DVD capabilities going to be my best bet?

    Thanks!

    There is no limit, but I do not want to spend double what I spent on each component. I listed the price next to each component in parenthesis. I am keeping the stock head unit b/c the ole lady loves the way it looks.
