Default Help me help a friend.

My friend wants me to upgrade his audio. He doesn't want loud which is what I do he wants quality instead. His budget is around 500 give or take some. He has a 2012 VW passat. I'm just gonna use industrial grade peel n seal for sound deadener because I get it for free. This doesn't have to be top of the line stuff just an improvement over stock. Back obviously with this budget doesn't have to be great at all but if there is room a nice set of amped coax's back there wouldn't be bad. and he refuses to let me put any kind of sub in his car.

So basically what is needed is:
Front speakers
Headunit
Amp
Possible rear speakers

I'd stay away from that peel-n-seal product and go with something like Audio Technix ...

It's not exactly peel n seal thats just the closest thing to it. I've used it and it doesn't have a smell and I get it for free.

I'm really not sure. I was installing audio technix 60mil in my car and my dad who buries cable underground for AT&T says he can get me thicker stuff for free. Asked him to bring me some so I could try it and it appears to be pretty much the same stuff. No scent or anything and seems to be about 100mil.

personally i dont believe all that crap talk that peel n seal or quick roof is a inferior product..
or that it smells and falls off...
ANY deadener product will fall off if proper prep procedure isnt done plain n simple..
ive used quick roof in dozens of cars and NEVER EVER once did i have a customer complain about a "smell" or falling off..
my civic hatch has had quick roof in there for WELL OVER 3yrs.. and absolutely no sign of anything falling off etc

edit...sure its not the BEST stuff.. but for wht it costs its worth it.. i deadend my whole car for like 50bux...vs a solid 150 plus for another product

I wasn't referring in any way about the product smelling or falling off ... but the proper functionallity of the product as a deadner ...

and for most people it does just that..
it adds mass to such panel.. thats all deadener does
and just bc you werent saying that about such product..dont mean 100s of others wont

it just pisses me off when somebody says "budget install" and somebody basically says " go buy the most expensive deadener you can" "AT deadner is not cheap at all"
