Just picked up a SVT Focus Hatch and i need to get some audio bumpin in it asap. I all ready have a JVC KD-LH910 that i will be installing in this car and runnung to 2 amps, i to my speakers and 1 to my sub.

For speakers right now im planning on going components in the front doors with tweeters in the A-pillar and regular speakers for the rear doors.

For the front in looking at 6x7 Infinity Reference 6910cs. I am able to get them for $158 to my door. http://www.crutchfield.com/S-E5jFO5DwOJP/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?search=6810cs&i=1086810CS

For the rear doors im thinking of 6x8 Infinity Kappa 682.7cf. http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=15372 Im able to get these for 119 to my door.

I looked at the Kenwood Excelon KAC-X542 to run the speakers. http://www.crutchfield.com/S-E5jFO5DwOJP/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=120&I=113KACX542 Would that put too much watts at the Reference series? The amp pushes 88wrms per channel and the Reference are rated to 90wrms. Is that pushing it? I can get this amp for 250 to my door.

I have worked with car audio before but i would consider myself a rather noob. Let me know what you guys think of this setup and if anything is wrong. Wold these speakers/amp/hu complement one another well? Is this a good price for all of this stuff? Thanks.

Speaker choices aren't bad. I would steer clear of kenwood amps though.

I have heard that Infinity's have really good clarity and hights but mid-bass is lacking. I plan on running a 12 Re sx so will this take care of the problem and leave me with a clean SQ system?

By the way im planning on getting the kappa components instead of the reference components now =).
