Doing a car audio build, how does this sound for a system? And to clear things up, a sound processor can crossover the speakers before amping them, correct? So I can narrow down to a set of frequencies and then send them to amp to amplify then send to the speakers? Going on that idea, here is my sytem:

Speakers-
Midbass:
Dayton Audio RS180-4 7" Reference Woofer 4 Ohm 295-374 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=295-374&scqty=2)
Midrange:
FaitalPRO 4FE32 4" Neodymium Professional Woofer 4 Ohm 294-1120 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=294-1120&scqty=2)
Tweeter:
Image Dynamics XS28 (XS-28) 1" XS Series Silk Dome Tweeter (http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_22204_Image-Dynamics-XS28.html)
Subwoofer:
Dayton Audio UM10-22 10" Ultimax DVC Subwoofer 2 ohms Per Co 295-510 (http://www.parts-express.com/pe/pshowdetl.cfm?&Partnumber=295-510&scqty=1)

Amps-
Midbass&Tweeter Amp:(just because I already own one)
SSA Store - Sundown Audio SAX-125.4 Amplifier (http://store.soundsolutionsaudio.com/products/sundown-audio-sax-125-4.html)
Midrange:
PRIME Amplifiers - R250X4 - Rockford Fosgate® (http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/r250x4)
Subwoofer:
Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. (http://www.alpine-usa.com/product/view/mrv-m500)

Sound Processor:
3SIXTY Digital Processors - 3SIXTY.3 - Rockford Fosgate® (http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/products/details/3sixty.3)

Would this setup work and sound really good doing it? Right now I just have a 2 way system(the tweeters, sax 125 and the Dayton 7" and was wondering if this would make it sound a lot better)
Any suggestions would be welcome and thanks for helping!

y don't you use the Prime to power the Midrange and tweets then use the SSA to either bridge a 2ohm midbass to 4ohm or get two sets of 4ohm so u get more power to ur midbass and put them in the rear, i think what u have would sound great, lots of power, hope u have an alternator and batter to support ur wattage, also i am assuming u r looking for more SQ than SPL?

I was only originally powering the midbass and tweeters with the same amp because they are about 100w RMS each and that thing puts out 125w a channel so it would fit up nicely. Also with the extra 2 channels on the prime amp I have 2 rear fill 6.5 coaxial I was planning on powering with that instead of the head unit. And yes, I am going for SQ, not SPL. Is there anything you recommend changing, any amps you prefer, any different speakers? Also, the 7 inch midbass is in the front and only 2 of them because I have 2 8" door speaker holes in my car so it fits nicely. Thanks for the help.

yeah a CDT ES-06 can take a crap ton of power and sounds really nice. its actually 6.5 though if you can get it to fit.
