    I just bought an 05 Titan and the system is pretty much blah.I was going to put some new speakers in first then later add another deck later.My question is should I go with components or coax.I have 2 tweeters on the front dash each side...6" in the front and I think 6.5 in the rear.I dont need it to thump but I like it loud so I really have no need for 8" or 10" subs. Ive been out of this game so long its all greek to me now.Also I really dont want to do any modification.Some of the brand name I am looking at are Memphis,Polk,And JL..Which I know shit about any of them its just what some names friends have been slinging at me

    Don't bother with the speakers. If you have the base stereo, it's pumping out next to nothing, wattage-wise. I changed the stereo in my Focus when I bought it with a $90 unit from WalMart and it made a world of difference, even with the factory speakers.

    Well, I was also considering buying them all at the same time..Speaker replacement is a must as the passenger side door has a slight rattle..I was thinking an Alpine deck but Im not sure if name really doesnt mean what it used to

    It doesn't, unless you're an audiophile snob.

    And don't forget one of these.

    I'd definitely get the bits and pieces there, but before getting a stereo, go to WalMart or some other store when you can test the controls. You want to be sure you can do simple shit like changing stations or volume without looking at it.

    Grid, I keep my system Alpine all the way around except amps. Keep the factory tweets and mix in some three ways in the doors. A small sub will go a long way with all the highs you'll be pushing.

    I've been using Crutchfield for years for car audio. It's probably cheaper to go looking for each piece here and there, but Crutchfield is a real easy way to set up a system, without all the looking around, at a decent price. You can even get the installation kits and wiring harnesses there too. Makes it super easy putting everything in.

    That was another thing I was kinda wondering about.If I go with components should I just unhook the dash tweeters..Yeah a small sub and amp may be a good idea
