Default To many choices!

I'm new to car audio. I don't know much about any of the products. Can I get advise on what I should look for?

What did you have in mind? There are ton's of people on here that have such a vast knowledge base that it continues to amaze me.

That being said, what would you like info on? Subs, amps, batts, wire, alts, accessories? If you can give us a general idea of your goals and budget then it's much easier to help you with info about what to look for in a product.

Need info on pretty much everything. I'd like to eventually have a nice loud system that'll turn heads everywhere I go. I've looked on these car stereo sites such as woofersetc and sonic electronics. Would I be happy with something like Rockford, Orion, and kicker? Does an all the same brand system sound better than a mixed matched system? Subs- nothing less than $100. I don't believe a cheap sub will out do a $200-1,100 sub. Amps- depends on brand or if used. Batts- guess that depends on how many anps I use huh? Wire- is that big of a difference? I thought wire was wire? Alts- is there any a particular alt better than others and priced? Assessories- like a CD player that plays flash drives or something? This will be a vehicle driven regularly. The vehicle is a tahoe btw. My budget is pretty flexible. If something used pops up that's better than buying new sure. If its a steal on something new then I'm all for it.

Thanks for the headsup! When I saw those brands I thought junk as well.

Oh lord, it's a hoe. Too much possibility to list. could go with small and simple, a pair of good 12's on 1500 watts would be nice. or could go insane with a huge 4th order bandpass on 8 18's and 20 thousand watts, huge batt banks and multiple alts.

Ok help us out a bit. You said budget is flexible. Is that like $500 flexible, or $5k flexible. How much space are you willing to give up, like do you want room left over in the back, or would you use the whole cargo area, or even a wall? Have you decided on what size subs you want to run, or a power range you want to be in for you amps? Say 2k or less, 3-5k, 5-7k, or higher?

I honestly think if done right, you could be quite content with any of the brands listed above, but for the money, there are far, far better options available. Batt's and alts and wire depend entirely on what you plan to have for power. Mixing and matching brands is completely normal and can yield better results since each company has strong suits, like subs, and weaker ones, like amps. So a sub and amp from the same company may not be best for each other.

The possibilities are endless since its a hoe! Flexible in $5k not $500, I don't see a $500 system being a head turner unless its being made fun of. I guess for starters using the whole rear section for now. Is it better to go big than working your way up into the big leagues? I've seen some nice systems in hoes off of YouTube. Sub size can vary I guess. Power I'm guessing 5kw unless that's not to much. I'd like to have some good stuff if its better than what ive listed.

Budget I'm not going to sink $50k into right off the bat. Practical I'd say $7500-10k. That's a pretty nice system starting out I think.
To be a head turner
