Default Looking to put an audio system in

Anyone already put a sound system in their Ram? Any suggestions with speakers, subs, amps, Stereos? I'm new to the whole car audio deal.

Welcome to the site! ... but I have to say, that is a really open-ended question and you should search the forum and look for some inspiration. Try starting in the Audio/Video section located here: http://www.ramforumz.com/forumdisplay.php?f=16

Just my .02....folks hear things differently. A particular set up that sounds good to me may not sound good to you.

The best way for you to determine what's good is to go listen to some different set ups at an audio store. And, as it is with many other things, you get what you pay for.

Good luck with your choices. Audio can be one of the more difficult decisions to make.

Welcome to the Forum!

In my opinion, I prefer Hertz speakers, Kicker subs/amps, and Kenwood/Pioneer head units. If you have a local audio shop I would stop by there and talk to them, they can really help you out with any questions you have. That and they have a lot better stock on thing like head units and subs than a place like Best Buy would have and they will normally wheel and deal with you Right now I currently have 2 - 6.5" Hertz speakers in my front doors, 2 - 12" Kicker Comp CVR's under my rear seat, a Kicker 300.1 amp under my seat, and a Kenwood eXcelon head unit -- which you can only buy at an authorized audio dealer. I love my current setup.

Since my first truck, a used ford, I haven't replaced, or added, any sound equipment to my other trucks.
The stock am/fm/cd/sat system sounds good to me.
I wouldn't know where to start with these new vehicles made now. It was easy installing and adding speakers and amplifiers in that old 74 ford.
But, I'd have to go to an auto-audio shop to get anything like that now.
Good luck to you.
