I'm new to the whole sound system scene but I was wondering if any of yall have any opinions or comments on my plan.

I have a 2006 Trailblazer with a stock, non Bose, speaker system. Since tomorrow is Black Friday, I was planning on taking advantage of all the deals. I am planning on upgrading all of the door speakers instead of adding the box to my trunk. I'm mainly looking for sound quality over loudness. My budget is limited to about $500.

For my upgraded dash unit, I am planning on getting this Kenwood KDC-MP342U:

For my upgraded door speakers, I am planning on getting these JL Audio VR525-CSi speakers:

If I do this, will I also need to buy a new amp to push these to their full power?

Thanks in advance to all of the responses!

if u want to push them to there full power, which you would get better sound out of them that way, then yes I would reccomend a 4-channel amp, dont know if it will be in your budget though, also front door speakers are 6 1/2" speakers and you can get 6 1/2" in the rear doors too

i didnt see anything that was really that nice, in the adds today.

i would wait till cyber monday and see what all the websites are going to do. im sure someplaces like sonicelectronix and wooferetc are going to have some neat stuff for sale.

and i agree, you will need an amp for the speakers.

Lgordon - hey I am in a similar boat to you. Once you make your decisons let us how you like the sound.

Personally I want everything concealed and stock looking so I am not changing my HU. I am wondering if I should just get 4 good door speakers and an Amp like you; or if better sound would be attained with a small powered Sub and having the door speakers driven by the HU.

Still not sure what I am going to do. The only place I am gonna put something extra is under the front seat so it's either gonna be a small Sub, or the Amp. I'll be following your thread to see what you do and how you like the sound. Good luck.
