I understand that your a teenager and money is a big deal but I'd still suggest spending your entire budget on 1 part of the system. Start with a deck then speakers then sub then amp and do the sub and amp in that order because then you know what amp you need for your sub not the other way around. I used to work at a audiophile car audio shop so if you have questions you can ask me anything.
+111111 dont cheap out on a system at all in your car, youll regret it i promise, everytime i am spending money on my car not matter what i dont cheap out because i look back on it later and regret it.
but for a head unit i would go with alpine, kenwood, pioneer makes good as well and for pretty cheap, amp i would get kicker kenwood alpine or rockford fosgate, and same with the subs.
as for install its easy as hell, i put a system in a guy at works car, including the radio, wiring the amp, and subs, took me a hour and a half in mcdonalds parking lot with 2 screwdrivers and a pair of pliers. so needless to say its really easy, just take your time. hope this helps
