300 bucks isn't alot honestly....but for that I would go with a Pioneer Premier head unit with usb and ipod, and a powered bazooka tube

Go with a kenwood deck, 6 rca-pre outs with 4 volts instead of 2.5, and it has alot of crossover setting to make it sound perfect!

I concur. I roll with that pioneer premium deck and a L5 kicker sub and I love it but bazooka is great.

Here's what I went with: Alpine CDE-102 $150 at best buy. Alpine KTP-445 180w mini-amp $120 at best buy. Kenwood 1662s 6 1/2 coaxial speakers $50 at best buy. Infinity Basslink 1 200w powered sub $200 at most places online. Sub takes up almost no space and about as cheap as your gonna get for some quality sound.

Quality is only determined by the ear of the owner

If your not looking for much, I know best buy has a 300w amp with 175rms bridged 4 ohm. Its 50 bucks and my friend has it, he says it sounds pretty good. I'm buying it in a few weeks after i get my rusted rear end fixed up :P It should be enough to get you the base you need with a small sub.

I completly agree having my sound system in with the top and doors off make it a blast to drive. It catches a lot of eyes to....and girls dig it too
