    I am looking on e-bay for a complete system. You now sterio/AMP/front and rear speakers ect. I found one and I was woundering if the sterio gurus will look at it. Also tell me if this is the type of system I am looking for. My K5 is a multi-purpose rig, it is my DD and are camping and trail/rock rig. The wife like to drive in it and also drive it, and she likes her bass. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Thanks for all the help in advance.

    I would big on them sepreatly instead of a complete system. Find a headunit you like with the features you want and bid on it. Then bid on amps, then bid on speakers, then bid on subs. Doesn't have too be in that order. Very rarely can you get a complete system with everything you want.

    Oh here is the link sorry I for got it.

    Sterio system linky

    [/ QUOTE ] Pyramid. Not a high quality name brand. If you're just looking for sounds, it'd work, but I don't know how long it would last. In all honesty, I'd invest in a quality headunit and a pair of quality speaker for now, then later on add a good amp and quality subs. But that's just me.

    I used that as an example of what would make a good system for my truck. You also need to realize that this is a DD/trail rig. I run with out doors and top during the summer time. So I dont want a name brand system so that way if it gets stolen or gets dust or water in it I wont be as mad about it cuz its not a name brand.

    get a quality detachable face, or removable head unit. Trust me, you'll be better off. If you have an alarm, it'll help deter theft too. My roomie has a Jeep, and he has a detachable face and hasn't had a problem (runs w/o top or doors) and we live in a (beginning to be) bad neighborhood.

    What do you need a system for in a big truck Danny? /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif What I did was purchase my system components separately off e-bay. I bought a sony headunit with detachible faceplate, alpine speakers, 2 alpine 12's, and a soundstream amp. Sounds very good in my opinion.

    All brand new. I highly recommend soundstream amps. I have the Tarantula 700/2 powering my subs, and the amp is only turned 1/4 of the way up. Any more and it sounds like it will blow my alpine type r's. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif But the alpines with that amp produce awesome sound quality.
