I've looked through some of the threads for audio setups and speaker recommendations but am still a little clueless as to audio setups. I have an '03 Malibu Wakesetter with stock radio which is a JBL head unit that just died and 4 cabin Infinity speakers. I don't believe stock comes with an amplifier, please correct me if I'm wrong.
Anyways, I'm looking for a new basic setup that sounds great with 4 new speakers, an amplifier, and a new head unit that can also play streaming bluetooth. I'm not interested in tower speakers yet, but would like an amp that could support 2 tower speakers as well as the 4 cabin speakers. I'm not interested in a subwoofer. Also, looking to spend in the $500 - $750 range.
So for the specific questions:
What size and recommendation for a good amplifier?
I've seen many recommendations for Wet Sounds, Exile SX65M, Polk MM, & JL MX650's. I will probably not listen to any as I'm not that particular just want a good upgrade over stock and will go with best price and using 4 of the same. Any recommendations for great sound and price?
I haven't seen a lot of talk for recommendations on head units. Once I find the choices available with bluetooth options, what else should I look for from an upgrade / higher quality perspective?
