If you need to go cheap, you should do your own install and buy your stuff online. Etronics is a fairly cheap online retailer, check them out.

700 is gonna be pretty tight for a complete system, especially if you like stuff with Bass which you are indicating, :) You may be better off buying a set of speakers and a head unit for now, and saving up some more to get your sub and amp seperately.

I have to recommend first figuring out exactly what you want, down to the model number, then hit up froogle - www.froogle.com. Search for the model name and number, then sort by price, and you'll find some fantastic deals. I discovered www.hookedontronics.com this way, which has amazingly low prices.

Alpine 7995 (250 on ebay new), 4 semi-decent speakers, a good sub amp (something like zapco or something solid), and a good sub. For subs go to soundillusions.net. Brahmas and such can be had for around $300-$250 and can outdo JL W7s. They were my first forum and are awsome and know a lot about audio. They taught me everything I know, I have just been out of the car audio scene for about a year so my memory is fuzzy. Good Luck. Also anything by ADIRE audio is hella good and very high quality and cheap. I went from having 2 of their Shiva subs to 2 tempests and have been pleased with their quality and power... that and they cost like $100 each, as you buy them straight from the factory. Brahmas Im sure will blow you socks off.

also thats if you want bass... if you want serious quality all around it'll take more then $700 im sure.

Funny you should ask. I spent aprox $650 on the following by buying stuff off Ebay as new.

Alpine 9815 with the xover set to 50Hz with a slope of 2, max volume of 22 sounds pretty damn good.
MB Quart RCE-216s
IA for the mounting hardware - they have a fitment pdf
