 Your Opinion

I don’t really know that much about stereo systems, at least not as much as some of the people on here, but I’m trying to learn. You’ve got to start somewhere =). I’ve been reading threads and post on this site for quite some time now to better my understanding of system. There seems to be quite a bit of people that are very knowledge able on this site and I would like your opinions. Ok well, I have been working on putting together a system although I don’t know what speakers I should get for the front and the rear of my car(preferrably component). I have a 72 Buick skylark, that I should have pictures of within the month, and I’m rebuilding the engine along with installing a sound system. I bought these a while back: 2 kicker S7’s (http://image.www.rakuten.co.jp/downlow/img1018668845.jpeg) Kicker 1200.1 (http://caraudiosecurity.gr/Pics/Products/BIG/B_274.JPG) Kicker 350.4 (http://images.cardomain.net/products/kic/KIC04KX3502_1.jpg) I’m looking for a good equalizer (again, I don’t know what’s a good EQ for the money) I would also like to know if there is anything you would suggest that I add.

if your just starting an EQ is LAST on the list.
for one, an eq in beginners hands is very bad.
start out spending $ on some good fronts and an amp to run them.

X2, I own a EQ, but I've waited five years before buying one. Personaly, I would begin by choosing
1-Good HU
2-Front Components
3-amp for Components
4-Subs/Amp
Getting an EQ is more like the final step or addon you can do, You first need to learn how to listen the sound system instead of listening the music (To be able to detect the imperfections in the sound reproduction, Image, Staging). When the imaging/staging of the system will be done, and you want to get more SQ then you buy a Equalizer. But just because you ask it I suggest you this one: Clarion EQS746, Check in my Gallery I've got some pics and info(click my face)
Here's a link where you can get an idea of the price and specs

 What kind of speakers

I'm new to the brands and such. Ive installed systems before but they were bare bones systems. For example: HU, Subs, Amps, Box, and Wires. They sounded great for what was installed but I was wanting more for my system. Thats why I've been reading books and such. One good book I've come across was 'High Proformance Car Stereo' by Joe Pettitt. I was wondering since it wasnt a good idea to go with an EQ then what about a crossover. I've been reading about both of them and I understand how both work. I was going to use this site for touble shooting if i ran into problems. I have a HU it an Kenwood KDC-x889 (((http://www.audio4cheap.com/customer/product.php?productid=17062))) theres some specs on it. I would like to know What speakers I should use for the front and the back pair. I was thinking component up front and 2-way in the back. I just dont know what brand is a good quality and reliable. Yeah, I would also need to buy another amp.
