Default Now moving on to audio, need advise

Ok. Here's what I got. A shitty audio system. I need advise on what is good and what to steer clear of. I want one 15, or one really good 12. I also plan on staying with the size of the speakers inthe rear behind the seats, and inthe door panels. I think they are 5.25 or 6.25. something like that. Any recommendations? How about amps? I've got some old amps, but they suck. I don't want my speakers freaking loud, just want it to soound really good. And it wont be for competition either. Just something I can enjoy while driving down the road without my ears ringing/having a headache.

I have a 2 door coupe.

Second, I was looking thru cructhfield awhile back, and saw that they have "kick panels" for my car. 1995 by the way. It adds 2 more speakers, while looking stock. Is there anything else like that? I want to stay as stock looking as possible. But, I want it to sound pretty balanced.

Next, I got a cheapy looking cd player. I had a really expensive one in there, someone stole it. Then I got a cheap one, and it broke in a year. So, I got a descent one. But looks cheap. I hate cds, and it stores all the music on a memory card, and it never skips or cds scratch. I don't want to replace that head unit.

If you want decent sound you don't need a 15. you could go with an 8. also it won't weigh as much. AS for amps they sell 5 channel amps that will run your whole system. Do you have an ipod? You could get a cheap deck that can control your ipod or get the sony giga panel. You can transfer mp3 right into the face.
