Default help with audio system

I currently have a 2011 malibu 2LT. I want to get just about a whole new system, but i dont know a whole lot about this topic, just the basics. My brother has a system for his 2004 bu so this pretty much inspired me to get mine done. this is what i got so far.

I like alot of bass, but i also would like a nice sound coming from the speakers as well. im not looking to spend a fortune on this, im only 17(almost 18) and i have to pay for all this myself.

Any suggestions, tips, or any information regarding this will be deeply appreciated.

I have a 2008 malibu LT and I have 2 12" Kenwood subs, 500w apiece, with a 1000w kenwood amp. I also have another kenwood amp that I do not know the wattage of that I have run to my stock speakers because I did not want to replace the speakers...I'm also 17. Anyway, my setup sounds great but the freaking rear deck rattles like crazy which sounds horrible. I would suggest some sound deadener under the rear deck when you put this stuff in. I will hopefully be installing some sound deadener soon cause I'm completely fed up with the rattling. I will let you know how it works.

It just really depends on your budget and how loud you'd like to be.
