Stereo questions for a 5th Gen

Ok, I just bought my first car, a 90 Celica GTS and the stereo is more than dead.

1st, the entire right channel doesnt work as far as i can tell.
2nd, the rear speakers in the very back are not even there.
3rd, both front door speakers dont work
4th the tweets in the front dont work

are there any other speakers in this car i dont know about?

The only speaker that appears to work is the drivers side in the rear seat, and it doesnt sound that good at all.

So basically the intire thing is junk.

I dont have tons of cash to spend on stereo, but i do want something nice to listen to.

So far i plan on getting 2 sony xplod 6.5s for the back seat(should i put something in the front instead?) and a sony mp3 deck to start.

A friend of mine has 2 Alpine Performance tweeters he is gonna give me that he doesnt need any more.

I know Sony isnt considerd to be great for car stereo or anything, but it'll do for me.

So i guess my question is,how good is the stock AMP under the passenger seat? Will it do for now till i can replace it?, and can it run a sub? I just plan on getting 1 ten inch and putting it in the hatch.

Other questions i have are.. what size / kind are the speakers in the doors? are there any in the dash?, what kind/size am i supposed to put in the back of the car?

Thanks for taking the time to read this, I know basically nothing about car stereos, so i appreciate any advise you can offer.


just waxed it up today, take a look.
