It's difficult to suggest specific equipment since there are so many variables involved, not the least of which is what is available to you in your area and fits in your budget. Typically, when people give such suggestions on a forum, they suggest equipment they own or would like to own. They do not take into account what someone else might need.

As a general suggestion, I would first set a budget. No need to know much about equipment at this point, just say how much you want to put into this and then be flexible if needed.

Locate a good pro sound shop in your area who can provide some one-on-one advice and answer questions. Do a bit of research on brands in the time you have and take your time buying. You might call local schools and churches to see if they can provide any shop names or possibly a local dj who can put you in touch with shops they recommend. The latter is somewhat dangerous for the reason I mentioned above, someone is likely to suggest what they own, not what you might need. Individuals might see your request as a way to sell off some gear they no longer want.

However, knowing as little as you provide in your op, finding a local shop you can trust is your greatest asset in this situation IMO.

You have a car audio question but you are in the home audio section. Plus, you're taking over someone else's post. So, my suggestion is a new post with your question in car audio.
