Exclamation NEED Reccomendations For Sound System In GOLF GTI 1997

wats ^ guys. i hav a 97 Golf GTI and im plannin on throwin in a FULL Soundsystem including 4 Car Speakers, 2 12"s, 2 Amps, A Capacitor, and possibly 4 tweeters. I want Really Low Bass so that it bangs and also really good sound quality of course from the vocals. i went to an audio shop and got a deal for 1400 with all that including the tweeters, LABOR, and wiring. I havent done it yet and havent found out what hes puttin in it as far as BRANDS for the equipment but the owner ASSUMES that what he uses is EXCELLENT QUALITY. I also dont want to have my subs blowing up or anything so that i have to replace something. Ill take any well thought suggestions into mind and please give me suggestions on what u would put in it. the sound system u suggest could be a totally different set up but id like to kno WHATS REALLY GOOD and WHATS NOT GOOD. i jus want my money im spending on this stuff to be worth it.

What brands were they going to install?

Personally I'd NEVER pay to have someone install my system for me.

I'd recommend doing a lot of research and installing it yourself.

Firs thing first, I'd recommend against a cap. You need to beef up your factory power wires. I could explain it to you, but I have a thread from another forum that explains it better than I could.

http://www.s10forum.com/forum/f27/ca...buying-403616/

What brands do you prefer?

What my preferences are for subs are: Resonant Engineering (Easily the best IMO, see my sig), Incriminator Audio, Alpine, Kicker. To bad Adire closed down because they were zomg! speakers.

My preferences for door speakers are: Resonant Engineering's RE series, Polk's (the cheaper DB's are great IMO) . These are all component set.

Amps: Soundstream, JBL and Kicker's are awesome.

Hope I can help ya

Well i can tell yu that i listen to alot of hip hop rnb music and also HARDSTYLE and somtimes rock music. So i want my system to have a really good sounding hard hitting bass and at the same time hearing the vocals really well. As For Brands, i want recommendations for this type of music and im gettin 800 watt amp for the subwoofer goin in the car. i dont know how many watt amp i should buy for the speakers and tweeters.. + do i really even need the tweeters? Will the speakers and capacitor be enough to have the vocals soundin clean and sharp?.. if u could reccomend me a SETUP thatd be great like for example

Rockford fosgate Amp 800 watt
2 JL AUDIO 12" Subwoofers or mayb 2 10" kicker subs watvr would sound betr.
Rockford 2 Farad Capacitor
POLK audio 6x9 Speakers
good Wiring
a really good head unit etc.

Find out if you can have some padding put in where your woofers are going so it doesnt rattle the whole car real badly. Thats SUPER annoying.
