stereo system

ok i have looked at many companies and products but i cant figure out who has the highest quality speakers and subs.. anyone know? i love bass, the system i have now is running a 12" sony xplod sub at 600watts but its not enough for me.. i like to shake the crap out of everything, ive yet to hear a stereo system that was too loud for me... but since i like bass its hard to hear the actual music. so i need high quality speakers and tweeters.. i was thinking about getting mtx 9500 series 12" 1000watt rms subwoofer and the highest quality component speaker setup they have. any1 know if thats good? if i have the money i would buy the jackhammer but thats too much money for 1 speaker.. so im looking at spending $1500 for all new speakers, subs, and maybe an amp.. whats a cheap amp that will power a 1000watt speaker no problem without peaking out? one more thing, ive looked at a lot of speakers but i havnt looked into any decks.. what the best bang for your buck for a head unit? i would like one with a flip out screen but i dont need that...

i love pionner headunits i think they are the best, infinity and rockford fosgate make good componets that are loud with good highs might need a 4-channel amp. and this http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAu...D=16696...will power your sub (if you can wire it to 1 ohm.)

Pioneer head units look the best in my opinion and they have all the features you need but it depends on whether you have an ipod/mp3 or any thing to hook up on which pioneer deck to get.

well, i have infinity kappa components in the fronts and infinity kappa coaxal speakers in the rear. My subwoofer is an RE audio sx 15 that is 1000watts rms. Now, I have 2 hifonics amps that are powering all of the speakers. For the doors, its 100x4 @ 2 ohm (kappas are 2 ohm speakers) and 1200x1 @1ohm on the subwoofer.

I bought all of my stuff of ebay and as long as you buy them from a good seller (and brand new items) you should have no problem.

I got a kenwood amp powering my elemental designs 13kv.3 with 500w rms.
go with eD subs at least. they sell very cheap straught from the factory off their site. www.elementaldesigns.com. as far as amp, kenwood's 9103d gives out 900w rms at 2 ohms. (i got the 8103d). eD are awesome, i got over 1 inch excursion!!!

i have 2 pioneer 12" subs that ive had for like 5 years. their 500 watts a peice. i paid 100.00 for both at best buy. i got a jensen amp thats got 740 watts. got it the same time for around 180.00. got that from sears. i like the sony xplod head units but thats all in what you like i guess. i never did like the pioneer head unit. i just couldnt get the sound set up i wanted with them. i like bass and i get alot of it. i run the stock speakers. i leave the bass all the way down on the head and use the amp controls for the bass. it gets really loud to the point where it hurts my ears.

Alpine and Eclipse both make great headunits. For speakers, I think boston makes great component speakers.

well it seems pioneer has made the most recommended head units, but has anyone got mtx speakers/subs? ive looked at them and i think i like them the best still, jw how good a 9500 series 12" sub sounds with the high end components? i would like to get all mtx speakers and i guess a pioneer head unit.. i think ill find a cheap amp somewhere, it doesnt make that much difference in sound quality as long as you get the right power to match the speakers right? or no..
