$500 is a very low budget for quality parts and installation. A basic Alpine 4ch amp and 2pr Alpine 5x7 using the factory (non-Mach 460) deck would run about $649 w/tax installed.
-Or- you could do a Alpine deck (9856) with MANY upgrade options for the future and 2pr Alpine 5x7 for $569 w/tax installed.
Or you can step it up more and do a NON Mach system with Factory radio using a upper end Recoil 4 ch. amp, 4 guage power kit, BOSTON 5X7 speakers F/R installed at $685 (Thunder Audio/Carrollton), If your at the $500, dont skimp. Get quality equiptment that you can build on. If anything do a little at a time. Start with a nice head unit your happy with and build your system up. If your serious and looking, check out Thunder Audio this weekend (July 15th). 97.9 will be there between 1-3 pm doing a live remote. There will be huge 1 time savings on Boston Accoustics, Zapco, Cliff Designs, Clarion, JBL, Cerwin Vega, Cutting Edge and a few others. And if I remember right some Double Din in Dash TV's that are bad ass. 7" wide, built in blue tooth for cell phone, built in Ipod controls, built in TV tuner, SD card slot, all touch screen, 6 channel output, built in center channel, etc. It will be fun.
