Thanks for the link 56K.

I plan on putting in a new GPS headunit, backup camera, speakers and a sub woofer. I am an electrician and plan on doing the install myself, I have done two installations before. I want better sound but also want GPS and a backup camera. My budget is $1300 so after I buy the head unit there is not much left for everything else. Sound Quality is important but I don't want to shake the neighborhood. My last car had a 40 watt 4 channel amp and a powered sub and it was plenty loud for me.

The more I read the more I am leaning towards components in the front and coax in the rear. I will probably add a 4 channel amp and I will either use two channels for the components, bridge the other two channels for a sub, and run the rear coax off of the head unit or all of the speakers off the amp and and get a self powered sub.

I would like to save as much cargo space as possible and would like to have everything hidden if possible. If I go with components I want to use the factory locations.

Any advice, help, or recommendations would really be appreciated.
