Hey guys,

Figured I will kill 2 birds with 1 stone by posting my introduction and some questions. I am pretty much new to this whole car audio scene and have some limited knowledge. I would greatly appreciate any advice/recommendations you have for my future system.

This is everything I plan on buying for my system, I have a 2007 Nissan Altima btw:

Pioneer AVH P4300DVD Headunit

JL C5-525 components(front doors)

JL C2-690tx 6x9(rear deck)

Kicker Solo-Baric L7 DVC 12's(2)

Rockford mono amp T1500-1BDCP

Rockford 4chan amp R300.4

Basically I want to know if this is going to be a good setup...

Im trying to get a great sounding system(no clipping, distortion ect.) with some bump in the trunk. Do you recommend anything thing else I should get or shouldnt get?
Also I have the option to put some speakers in the rear doors..is it worth it? if so, should I put another set of components? 2ways/3ways?

Sorry for so many questions, I tried doing as much research as possible..but I figured its time to ask the experts. Any help will be great, Thanks!

Not horrible stuff but way way better can be had for the price... you where probably gunna pay what, almost 2000 grand for that stuff once you got all the install gear you needed?

Yea it would have been around 2k...Can you please recommend some stuff for me. I've been searching for like 3 weeks and I honestly thought this would have been a good setup

All newbs do lol... Hell I thought Kicker and Rockford was the sh*t too at one point... Check out Sundown, DC, FI, DD, Skar, AQ, and Im sure Ill think of more soon... You need to budget for electrical upgrades as well... I also have a 4ch. and some comps if your interested?

Ill check out those brands...I was under the impression that rockford made the best amps..since so many ppl seem to think so. Anyways when you talk about electrical upgrades are you refering to batteries, alternators, and big 3? I already have a yellow top optima, im not sure if thats enough. I still have alot of researching before I buy anything right now

Not anywhere near the best amps, Nice amps but not anywhere near the best lol... youl will probably need another small batt and do the Big 3... I may also have some 1/0 left over...
