I just got some new speakers & a small amp for the old 94 chevy work truck from ebay. 4 skar audio 4x6 speakers & a taramps 100 watt mini amp was about $90. They sound really good for the price. I have gone wayyy overboard on the ranger sound system tho. I am up to 5 amps & 13 speakers so far. I have 8 6x9s, 2 4" titainium tweeters, 2 full range 1000 watt ea 8" subs & 1 3000 watt 10" sub. All together i have about 7500 watts rated. I think its going to be loud...

My credo
Deengineer until it is how Blue Oval should have sold it!!
@Chapap ,
To make my budget stronger I follow this:
• used subwoofer
- Infinity RSDS, Kickers or West Coast Customs (WCC, all built by Harman Kardon))
• used sub amp
- Alpine, Kenwood, iNFINITy or WCC
• new separates (mids and tweets)
- Alpine, Nakamichi, MB Quart, iNFINITy or WCC
• used main amp• new head unit
- Alpine, iNFINITy or WCC

In a Ranger, my favorite set up is a set of 5¼" mids in the doors with separate tweets in the dash and a single 10". I use this power proportion:
• 50wrms for the mids/tweets with passive crossover
• 3x +/-15% mid/tweet amp arms power for the Sub with an active crossover
