Car audio noob needs advice
Hey guys, I need advice in improving the audio on my 2002 RSX while on a budget. For now I've decided on the following:
>Pioneer MVH-200EX Multimedia Deck
>MTX Magnum Sub/Amp combo
>JVC DR620/J620 (Depends on which is a better bang for the buck) For the Front
>JVC DR520 for the rear (Do I even need this?)
Also, I have no idea what cables or other components I need. Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Read the audio FAQ's they will answer most of your cable/adapter questions as a lot depends on if you have a base or type s....
Personally the HU is about the only thing i'd buy then save money for better equipment as you get what you pay for to some extent in the audio world. get components for the front and amp them if you are putting in a sub as HU power is not enough to keep up and be clear with sub's 150ish will get decent comps, sub's I'd go single 12 as in an RSX it's all you really need as you get a lot of cabin gain in a hatchback depending on the sub would then determine the amp/amps to use.

I suggest not purchasing from Crutchfield as their prices are generally higher than most online retailers. The HU for example is $145 on amazon.
The sub/box combo you linked seems like a good deal considering it comes with the amp, but it's going to take up a lot of space in the hatch. You can run a single sub and still get good performance. My single 12" produces too much bass sometimes, and it's only pushing 400 watts.
Like Locotony said, the audio FAQ will answer most of your questions.
