    That reminds me of another question that's about impossible to answer:

    "How long is a piece of string?"


    Lotsa.....that question is impossible to answer. Your idea of "good sound" is probably quite different from mine, and from many others on this list. Perhaps you could give us some criteria about what you have heard that you think sounded good.....6x9s? Seperates? Hi-Powered In-Dash deck and 4 speakers.....Bazooka Tubes?

    There are SO many ways to do a system in a vehicle (especially in one as BIG as a K5) that the only limits will be your creativity and your budget....! For me the budget usually runs out first [​IMG]

    Seriously though....give us some more specifics about what you like, and what you are expecting to spend and I'm sure you'll get some ideas from this group.

    For me I had two 12"s with a 600 watt amp, two 8"s in truck boxes w/tweeters with a 250 watt amp, two 6x9s and four 1" tweeters with a 300 watt amp. That sounded good all the way arond, including a block away. I put it together for $700.

    Go to a local flea market... buy one of them dual 10" speaker boxes you can get there (they are the samething I have found if you look to find a decent one that you can buy at Best Buy). They are like $50. They have the plexi glass fronts. Then go get two MTX subs. They are like $80 for two. Then get a decent amp. I got a Crunch Drive 800 watt amp. $130 bucks and it's way awesome if you ask me. Anyhow you will be deaf in a week. Least I hear nothing but my friends complain it's too loud. [​IMG] It sounds good too! (Of course like Greg said your opinion of good might differ from mine....)

    You might look at bass tubes. Some of them come with amps.

    good quality sound and good bass?

    Well buy you a classical cd and play it through your stock speakers, not too bad because they're higher tones usually.

    The other is going to cost more. What you need here is a licence, a Shakespeare pole and a good bait caster reel. You'll need a net, full box of tackle, and a bass boat. Then you'll need a 1 ton CHEVY to pull that bass boat. But once you're out there on the open water, listening to mozart and pulling in that first bass, you'll see what I'm talking about. it's GREAT!!!

    LOL j/k
    buy used stuff. Hell buy my 12" esx sub that's for sale.

    I wired in two home speakers with a 500 watt Legacy LA430, and it sounds great!! Cost me about $90. Got the amp at www.millionbuy.com Couldn't afford anything better 'cause I sunk $1,100 into the rear 10 bolt. I know, I know, coulda gotten a 14 bolt, but I didn't have money to buy 16" wheels and tires. Plus, it's VERY hard to find a 3/4 ton 10 bolt to convert the front, so I'd need an HD Dana 44 or Dana 60.
