need opinions on new sound system for 98 cobra with Mach system

So my friend just got a red 98 cobra with the mach system and we both agree that the sound system sucks. We're looking to replace the speakers, the headunit, put in a new amp, and put in a sub (possibly with a separate amp) but we dont kno where to start. We'd like to keep it all under $1000. What is the best we can do

ive heard when you swap head units the entire system has to be junked, cant keep the amps and the speakers sound horrible without them~ so you would probably have to start all over just FYI.

Re: need opinions on new sound system for 98 cobra with Mach system

All you really need to do is just get an extra amp for a sub all the mach system is missing is bass. This is what I would do.

Line output converter

amp of your choice

sub of your choice

ported sub box that is large but easy to take in and out of the trunk


This should honestly make it sound pretty good unless your looking for bass that will set off car alarms and break glass.

To do as i suggested here are the parts you'll need :

Amp

Sub

Box

Power wire

Ground wire

RCA cables

A few feet of speaker wire

Remote line (pretty much just speaker wire that can run from the stereo to the trunk.

Yeah since the sub alone is worth almost that.
