i have not been into car stereo's since i was 16. now at 23 i am a little out of the game. i just got a 2000 dodge intrepid and it is in major need of an upgrade. i have an alpine cd deck 3yrs old which has 2 sets of preamps and a rockford fosgate 2x75 amp 6 yrs old still working. I will be buying Kicker products because i can get them from a pal at dealer cost. i would like to keep the cost under a $1000. i need front, rear, sub, amps,.... anything you guys suggest please help
thanks
john

John,
I've been out of car audio for awhile also but here are some websites I have recently stumbled upon that may help answer some of your questions.

These should get you started.
It seems that more focus and money is being spent improving the front sound stage (much like HT) in car audio now.
A lot of what's talked about is amplified separates in the front with no rear deck speakers at all and a single amplified sub in the back.
I have found most Kicker products solid preformers in the past so I would say stick with them if you can still get at-cost prices.
HTH and good luck.
Brian
