    I have no idea what to install regarding audio in my truck. This would be my first system, and being the newbie I am, need some help and advice with what to put in. The only problem is, is that my back seat is usually filled to capacity with tools and I want a system that is hidden but still makes the car next to me feel uncomfortable.:he:
    A little help? Thanks

    To be honest, Im not looking at anything in particular. I want to buy a nice system once and not have to worry about it wearing out down the road. A Pioneer Flagship In-Dash Navigation AV Receiver Model AVIC-Z110BT as a head unit is what im considering. Maybe a 2 channel amp and 4 new speakers. Is it ok to mix brands? Pioneer unit with JBL speakers...etc.?

    Ya thats the unit. I want to install all myself, with zero electrical experience, do you think it is pretty safe to say I cant really f*** it up?
