Pheonix was good years ago... they suck now (like Rockford) and recently I heard they went Bankrupt.
Those companies dont "suck" now, it's just that there are a lot of other car audio companies that have developed their product a bit better.... and it reflects in higher costs as well.
PG and Rockford are pretty inexpensive . Out of all the known "Brand names", I would defenitly go with JL for amplifiers, and Boston acoustics for subs.
