If you want to build a good car stereo system, the one of the most important things is the speakers that you would use. They produce the sound that you hear with your ears and high quality speakers as you can tell, produce clearer and pleasant for the ears sound.
If you have or want to have subwoofers in the trunk, your speakers are even more important, because you risk to hear heavy bass but almost nothing from the mid and the high range, because of weak and low powered speakers.
