Would you recommend that a 16 year old drop almost two grand over a car stereo system? No, I would not either, and I still consider that mistake that my friend made when selling his shares of stock to put in a new system in the older Camaro. What made things worse is his car started extracting a few years later and needed more TLC than he could provide it with. He ended up within a truck next and didn't transfer his system in to the new vehicle.
When you want a nice system inside your vehicle, it's often better to make smaller changes from what the vehicle already has inside. Why? An older car doesn't have a system worth thousands. A newer car will have a nice system, and you could just want to add an amp, equalizer and a couple subs. And by the way, those subs don't really need to be 12's.

In fact, one good 10" sub would do, and that means you don't even require a set. Speaker quality does come into play, so you might not want to decide on the cheapest speakers. Still, putting a system in your vehicle doesn't have to be extremely expensive.
