if i get a new sound system, i'd be looking for something with high quality/bass (not necessarily how loud it can be) but not too expensive..

how much should they cost? how much amps should i be looking for? are there any other specs and products i should be looking for as well (i.e. subwoofer size)? and typically how much would labor cost (or is it easy-install stuff?? im assuming its easy?).. im trying looking for total cost under $500, but def. under $1000

also...

what do u think about these?

im running a GM-6300F 4 channel and a GM-7300M class d.

atm i only have the 7300m hooked up. it's 800w max, and it's powering a 10" shallow mount sub in a ported box.

planning to get Pioneer TS-D1720C for my fronts and Pioneer TS-D1602R for the rears.

because i don't have any components i can really only comment on the sub setup. cost $200 minus the box and wiring... and it sounds great. hits hard and gives a nice clean sound.

i believe it's a matter of personal choice... so pick what you like. in any event you'll need the basics. an amp, a speaker whether it be a sub or mid, wiring both power and speaker, and maybe a distribution block or two depending on if you run 1 or 2 amps.

whats the difference between 4 channel amps and 2 channel amps?

are the price for speakers per 1 speaker? per a pair of 2?

and lets say i get a 600W amp, and if i get 6 speakers.. would i get 600W speakers each, or 100W speakers each (600W total)?

That Depends On The Amp You Get, Usually If You Read Through The Spec Sheet Or Manual, It'll Say How Many Watts Are Given Per Channel @ Whatever Impedance.

speakers are sold in pairs, with the exception of subs which are sold separately.
