Arrow Sound System ? : Good sound, police friendly?

I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions for a sound system that sounds great, but isn't overpowered (other car should not hear my music).

I like big sound systems, but seeing as how my house is surrounded by dumb uptight neighborhoods, with 500$ max ticket for car noise (and the cops are so judgemental of me that I always get the max fine).

So if you know of any speakers, general setup, that you could reccommend for good sound but not "blast you away" noise.. I'm all "ears"

Well.. I'm basically asking for a lower wattage system reccommendation... Like a sub would be great, but it would have to be something that sounds good at lower volumes. Size is an issue, as I'm driving a[n] (evil) little Miata.

Budget is stretchable to $225.

You really, really need to stretch your budget a little if you want anything worthwhile.

yea...maybe a sony XPLOD reciever, 2 Sony XPLOD6X9's in the back, one 12" Sony XPLOD subwoofer and a 400 or 500 watt amp depending on how many watts the 6X9's and subwoofer are together. but i dont think all of these listed things are around $200-$225 though.

WOW, I dont know how many times I have to say this on this forum... STAY AWAY FROM SONY AUDIO EQUIPMENT. Sony makes nearly the absolute most pathetic car audio equipment out there.

HU - Pioneer, Eclipse, Panasonic, Clarion, Alpine
Speakers - depends on your budget
subs - Volfenhag DVC's seems to be on your budget (www.ikesound.com)
