I have the Monsoon sysytem in my Bonne, but in my old Grand Am I had an Alpine Type R with an Alpine MRD-M300 amp. I had had an Alpine Head Unit and Infinity Reference 6x9'* and 4x6 component plate. It cost a little bit to have it all but it was awesome sound. Crutchfiled usually has god buy one get one deals

Interesting, is there any others that you would recomend just so I have some ideas to play with? And do you know the sizes for the components and such? I have 2 12" kenwoods but I think i'm only going to use the one.. I just want quality and a bit of loud.. not a lot of boom.. I could probably down size to a 10..

I'll do a little digging and get the speaker sizes for your car in the next couple of days.

Hang in there and you'll get some more recomendations on quality stuff, that'* just what I went with. I am going to replace my factory speakers with Infinity'* as soon as I can do it
