    Getting a new audio system for my car

    Going to get my license soon, hopefully before I turn 18.

    My grandma is giving me her old car, a 1994 Pontiac Bonneville. It's in mediocre condition, 199k miles and a few smalls spots of rust in the door frames but none visible from the outside.



    Anyway, to the point, I'm going to buy a new audio system for the car. However, I know next to nothing about car audio. What all do I need to buy? I know you need tweeters and subs but not much else. Setting it up? Dunno nothing about that either. So what do I need to buy?

    My budget is ~500-600$ and I'd like to get a bass-heavy system (15"+ woofers maybe).

    Why don't you sell the one your grandma is giving you, buy a new car and buy a decent-ish set from the former car sale?

    I don't really care too much about how decent the car is, plus my parents won't let me sell it (because it was my grandma's). Wouldn't get much for it anyway.

    Not really, it's just that audio systems are more of Iverson's specialty. It's prolly best if you VM / PM him, I dunno how much he strays out of General.

    My friend a friend of his were talking about speakers in his car.
    He said Installing them would be a pain
    I would say just wait for a better car then get the speakers

    I had the most slamming 12" subwoofer of all time pushing 1000 watts rms. I put to shame people who had 15"s in their cars.
