Looking for some recommendations for better sound. I want it simple, inexpensive. I do want to keep my stock radio for now, I have an iPod cable and xm running through there. Suggestions?! Thanks!

I want to connect an iPod cable and run xm through the unit. I have them running through fm frequencies now so that would be ok for future. Is it worth new speakers in the driver/passenger doors?

if you have a stock head unit you won't get a lot of benefit from new speakers because the factory head unit just doesn't supply much power if you get a new head unit new speakers would go great with that. post your budget and I can help you out more.

check this link these are several pioneer units at some of the better prices you will find I personally think pioneer is the best bang for your buck and has by far the best ipod interface

Thanks for the link! I didn't really set one but I guess less than $400-500
