So I’m a bored college student on summer break. Figured I’d finally get around to bringing my car audio up to par with the rest of my gear. Speaker wise I use, and enjoy a lot, the Mackie MR624 (~$300-400) studio monitors which have a relatively flat and accurate sound. I’d like to go for setup with a similar sound signature and overall quality. Budget is whatever is necessary for the equivalent of a mid-range 2.0 speaker set up.
My current car is a 2005 Scion XB with bone stock audio equipment. I have literally no experience with car audio so I would love a step by step of what gear I need from someone more experienced experienced than I.
