haha, admit it, you saw mine and you want it now!!!

The Alpine that I have ran for about $150 I believe, but that was around 5 years ago. I usually don't see them in stores, I'm not sure of where you could find one.

I know Legacy is a cheaper brand to go with for audio equipment. I've had a few of thier amps before and one is going to be my 4ch amp for this setup. I've never had a problem with them before. I'd say if you can you should find an alpine like mine for one option, which is that you can choose the frequency where your door speakers cut off and your sub starts. I don't see that on the Legacy.

Unfortuantely I don't believe they make any radio mounts without the pocket for our trucks. No matter which one you get, I think there will be a bit of cutting to do. If you're willing to take a trip, you could always come up here and I can help you out with it. I'm pretty experienced when it comes to using a dremel. Jen and I have got an extra bedroom that you can use if you needed to spend the night.

Legacy makes really good amps, but I'd watch out for their EQs, or any other uhhh... "Low" name brands. I'd definitely go with kicker, alpine, pioneer, panasonic, sound stream, or any hifi brands if your budget permits.

Definitely go for the one that will max out your budget. The quality of your EQ is as important or more important the the quality of the CD player and amps.

You are using a seperate 4channel amp to power your door speakers right?
otherwise the eq cant be hooked up.
