I've just bought all my new gear - eventually!!

I wanted to upgrade all speakers and fit an amp to power them, plus fit a sub which was easily removed.

I went for the alpine swd-3000 as my sub as it already has an amp attached to it (£136 inc delivery off ebay): SWD-3000 - Alpine - Europe - Mobile Media Solutions

I have gone for Alpine type s 6.5" components for the front and co-axel's in the rear (£124 inc delivery for both from www.caraudiocentre.co.uk : SPS-171A - Alpine - Europe - Mobile Media Solutions & SPS-17C2 - Alpine - Europe - Mobile Media Solutions

These will be powered by the alpine MRP-F300 amp (£124 inc delivery from Audio Images - Car Audio, Tracker, Alarms, DVD Video, iPod, MP3) : MRP-F300 - Alpine - Europe - Mobile Media Solutions

I will also need to get a speaker to RCA adaptor (£10-20) along with a power lead distributor and fuses etc.

Im planning to mount the speaker amp in the 'hidden' compartment in the boot (the sub amp is on the side of the box)

I hope this helps a bit!

www.caraudiosecurity.com is another good website for parts.
http://www.caraudiohelp.com/ is a good website for help on installation/right fuses/cable guages etc (all instructions are down the right hand side of the web page)
dont forget www.google.co.uk it is your friend!!
