    Question about JL audio subs and amp combo?

    Im planning on purchasing a system for my X5. This is what im thinking about getting; A pair of 10w6v2's, the speakers are going be Focal or Boston, if its Focal im going go with the Focal K2P's in the front and polyglass in the rear. I'll be powering the subs with a one 500/1 amp and the speakers with (2) 300/2 amp's. My question is, should I get a 450/4 for the speakers and get (2) 500/1's for my subs or keep the two 300/2's and get 2 500/1's for the subs?? Any suggestions would be great.

    A 450/4 would be about the same and cheaper.

    Agreed.

    I would also go with the Boston for the interior speakers. This set up would be pretty nice.

    Also after look at the stuff you listed again, I think I would go with the 12W7 instead of two 10W6v2.

    It would probably be a little cheaper going with the W7 and you will be happier with the setup and save a little space as well if it was an issue.
