Re: best audio for my new car
In all honesty the best thing is to go to your local stereo store and ask them. They get paid for helping people out. Take your car down and get a sales person to have a quick look over your car. He can then tell you whether you need 7x10's or 6x9's for rear fill. What type of AMP you need, what kind of wiring what kind of head unit. Ask as many questions as you can.

It depends on your musical tastes, but for quality, I recommend Infinity or JBL. They are worth the money. If you don't want to buy an additional amplifier, get the most expensive speakers that you can afford. That way, they will make your deck's internal amplifier sound the best with its limited power output.
Easy fix. The factory has fitted a special socket to connect direct to factory speakers. Just cut this off and connect the wiring from your new speakers to the factory wiring. Use insulated connectors or solder and tape up the wiring. Make sure that the speaker wire with a "trace" or line of colour through it marries up with the same wire in the car. Cheers.
Batt + or B+ or Positive. This is the connection directly to your automobiles battery. It should be a fused connection rated to about 15% higher than the fuse installed in your amplifier.
Negative or '-' or Ground. This wire should be just as thick as the 'Batt + or B+ or Positive' wire. This wire can attach to any solid clean metal connation in the vehicle. Usually a trunk latch.
Remote or amp startup wire. This wire is a thin 12V wire that will come from the deck. It's a signal wire that tells the amplifier to turn on.
Inputs Low level inputs are in the form of RCA connectors and will require that your deck or head unit has low level or RCA outputs. High-level inputs are used for stereos that don't have low level or RCA outputs. They work by taking an audio signal directly from the vehicles speakers and then amplifying it as necessary.
Speaker connection. Match the + and - these with the appropriate connectors on the speaker box. Red means + and Black means -. I hope this helps.

The best online place to buy and research aftermarket mobile audio gear is: http://www.crutchfield.com. Put the information about your ride into the "outfit my car" wizard and they will tell you exactly what fits. If you purchase from Crutchfield, you will also get an install guide specific to your vehicle as well as any adapter(s) you need (for most vehicles).
If you are west of the Mississippi, another excellent online store is: http://www.sonicelectronix.com. There are many other sources, but these two are probably the best out there.
