What do you guys think??
. Thats probably the best idea for the price. You may want to read the post titled base stereo measurements. He talks a lot about de-eqing the base stereo. The alpine kit should be an option you think about for that reason. Otherwise the above is probably the only way to stay very cheap but you may have a wierd eq (boosted bass and treble)
