Hello everyone. I thought I'd give this new area a try. I am somewhat of a novice with regards to the car audio scene so maybe someone can help me. I have roughly (give or take fifty bucks) $600 to spend on a system for my 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport. I want something musical and strong sounding without worrying about a sub (for now). The Jeep is set up poorly for audio. It is cut for 5 1/4's in both the door panals (two-door model) and the sound bar across the back by the hatch. I understand that these spots can hold 6 1/2's without having to do any cutting. With this lousy budget I really can't afford the custom work. I would rather put the money into the speakers. I guess I need some advice on a pair of 6.5 inch component speakers for the front and a pair of 6.5 inch fillers in the rear or do I need components all the way around to get decent sound? As for an amp, I guess I need a four channel to start with rated at no less than 50 wpc @ 4 ohms. For a deck, I would like mp3 capability but it's not an absolute must have. I know that I would like at least 4 volt pre outs though. I listen to all types of music. Mostly older rock and even country, yes, country! I will add a sub and mono block amp later. Let's hear it, what have you got for me????? Also, install should not be considered in this budget. I really like the sound of JBL speakers and I saw an Eclipse 65wpc amp for $225.00. Is this even a doable project? I really need to do something soon though because I can't stand what I've got in there now. Thanks in advance for your help.
