    help with i.c.e. advice... cheers.

    hi all, just after a bit of advice for this...

    currently only got standard speakersand this head unit... i think it same...

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/KENWOOD-KDC-W4...QQcmdZViewItem

    looking to have my sound a lot louder but crystal clear, not really after subs as mainly listen to metal, apart from the odd prodigy and other tunes.

    where do i start. thinking of upgrading satandard speakers on the mk4 astra. which should i go for or watts etc.

    plus thinking of 6x9's and an amp, whatt power would you go for, want it to be really loud but clear... like i where at a gig...

    cheers all...

    It will all depend on budget

    To start with i'd forget about 6x9's in the rear shelf and go for some good components up front powered by a amp if possible and then a sub in the boot

    I know you say your not after subs but they don't have to have a imposing bass line to them

    This is where I don't know alot, I just know i've heard a few good systems now that have that combination

    Hopefully someone else can make a recomendation but i'd start by doing the front speakers and work back from there

    If its just components & amp these would be my choices if i had £300+:
    http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/2897.html
    http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/2767.html

    with that amp you have two channels spare which you can bridge to run a sub if you decide later on (which I think your really going to miss).

    Now you can get a system cheaper but again these would be my choices.
