school me on sound system

i just bought a sony XAV-62BT double din head unit for my truck, I figured while its apart i'd like to add an amp,subs and new door speakers. Ive never really done this so im wondering what is the best bang for your buck and how hard is it gonna be ?

not too hard look around on crutchfield and find something you like the hard part is wiring and if your truck is a 99-03 you will have to grind down the tabs in the stock hole on the dash to fit the double din

Yeah I heard I would have to grind down the tabs but it didn't seem all that hard to do.

just don't grind them down too far and you may have to take out the two screws that hold on the dash right behind the factory radio

I was thinking if making custom boxes and putting them under my seats. But I'm not sure if they'll fit now so I might ditch the subs

Re: school me on sound system

You can fit a shallow mount rockford in a "truck box" behind the seat crutchfield has one already mounted in the box and everything fit great behind the seat of my 79
