click on the Car Audio tab above. Below the specific topics you'll see a link for Crutchfield's First Time Car Audio Buyer. It's a great starting point. After reading that you'll probably know more than the clerk at the store that sells the stuff. You'll definitely have more correct information.

Oh yeah, then start reading the discussions under the topics that were above that link. Try 'amplifiers' and 'speakers' first. Don't get snowed. Old fashioned stereo was 2 channel and powered by a 2 channel amplifier. So gues what 3 or 4 channel is? Adding another channel usually a bass or subwoofer channel to make 3 or in the case of surround sound (4 speakers) making 5 channels. The passes high or low are generally referring to where the sound will crossover to the bass or tweeter. But note how in the Crutchfield piece they point out a lack of industry standards.
