    I would start with the head unit. That will give you the most noticeable gain. That is about half your budget. You could spend the rest on a small sub and amp or speakers, probably not both.

    This is my current setup, similar price range:

    I still need to replace the factory speakers. Maybe this summer.

    Like other have said,a nice head unit with at least 15w RMS rating and 4v preamp RCA's. Next would be front speakers with >= 92 db rating. The higher the better. Whatever you got left over maybe get some sound deadning for the front doors and a used self powered sub.

    Thanks guys for the suggestion. I think i will get a new head unit first. Would buying some subs make a huge difference?

    Can anyone confirm that this will fit in the 2014? Crutchfield will not give me a definitive answer since they have not tested it yet.

    Thanks in advance
