    I already have the head unit (an alpine CDA-9813) so no need to use dollars on that component. The door speakers are current coaxial alpine s type's. Probably want to swap the fronts out for some component speakers.

    Recommendations for amps, sub's front speakers are much appreciated!! thnx

    How about 12" Stereo Integrity Magnum D2 $300 (www.stereointegrity.com)
    Hifonics Brutus BX1000D [email protected] $265 (fleabay with warranty)

    Diamond Audio HEX S600s front comps $345 (fleabay with warranty)
    Monitor 1 MK2.120 [email protected] amp for fronts $175 (infinitecaraudio.com ) w/ warr.

    custom box to spec $200


    total: $1285 and there is money left for sound deadening and wiring and anything else

    Diamond Audio CM6 components (front) ~ 200
    Diamond Audio Midrange (rear fill) ~ 120
    Diamond Audio M6 subwoofer ~ 175
    Zapco Reference 1000.4 Amplifier ~ 600
    Installation Acc ~ 100
    Sound Deadening ~ 200

    That brings a total of $1395

    The only thing left is the box, but you could scrap some sound deadening depending on the type of box needed.

    That would give you a stellar sound quality car that you can really crank on.

    If you want loud:

    2 - Treo Engineering SSi 12.44 ~ 450
    1 - Planet Audio VX 2200D ~ 500
    2 - Planet Audio Neo ? ~ 180
    1 - Installation parts ~ 100
    1 - Sound Deadening ~ 100

    Total of ~ $1230
