Default 2016 VW Jetta Budget Build

I am starting from a stock stereo system which is terrible at best. I plan to keep the factory head unit because of some decent features like bluetooth, touchscreen, and backup camera. As well as trying to stay budget minded and keeping the factory look.

Component parts list that isn't set in stone:
Audiocontrol LC7i
Pioneer GM-D9705 5 channel amp
Alpine R-S65C 6.5" components(2 sets)
1 Rockford Fosgate P3D4 12" in a ported enclosure

Since I am getting my signal from a stock head unit, then getting mixed, summoned, accubased, and sprinkled with fairy dust, does it make sense to go with the high res versions of the Alpines(R-S65C.2) and the Pioneer(GM-DX975)? About a $300 jump in budget. Or would I just be polishing a turd?

Also, if anyone has alternative components in the same price range they would suggest, let me know.

Get a cheap DSP instead of the line converter

I second that. A DSP would be the best move to make your setup dialed in to your liking.

Currently: *Hybrid Audio Legathia 3-Way Active Front Stage * (2) Morel Ultimo 12's * (2) Arc Audio 1100.1 XDi v2 (Strapped @1ohm) * (1) Arc Audio 1200.6 * RF 360.3 DSP*

If you need summing to get a full-range signal from your OEM head unit, you might need the AC LC7i, or a JL Audio FiX 82. If not, then as others suggested, I would get a DSP, which will be the single largest factor in obtaining good SQ after your front component choice.

And if the second set of components is for the rear, I would skip those and just use the stock rear speakers. Put the money saved into better front components and sound deadening, and/or a DSP.

DIYMA member "SkizeR" has a Preorder Discount going on right now for his ResoNix sound deadening products.
