So far:
Alpine CDE-143 BT Head Unit
AMP Custom Amp Mounting Board
(Mounting an Alpine 500W Class D Mono Amp for Sub and an Alpine 300W Class D Multi-Channel Amp for Door Speakers)
10in Custom Loaded Sub Enclosure from Image Dynamics.

Still to buy:

Door Speakers:
I want 6.5in components to replace my 6x9 in front doors and 6.5in coaxials in the rear.

Im having problems deciding which ones.
I am looking at the Alpine SPS 610C 6.5in components 240W 80WRMS for the front & Alpine 6.5in SPS 610 coaxials 240W 80W RMS for the rear.

Question: Am i on to something here?
Feedback Please

Not really do you already have everything ? If not. The deck is ok. I've heard different opinions about it. Most are decent The amps are ok. The speakers you mentioned. Not so good

Thanks for the response.

I was trying to keep the Alpine theme going as you probably could tell.

I don't have unlimited funds either.

I could buy the image dynamics recommendations that I received.

Speakers will be stealth anyways so I guess it really doesn't matter which brand I go with.

I couldn't tell if you were giving recommendations or not. Sorry.

I'd love to hear what speakers you think I should go with.

Well the alpines aren't as good as you think There is better I can tell you Let me ask you a few questions. What do you want from your system ? Type of music ? Is space an issue ? I have a set if components and matching coaxes also a 5 channel mini amp that would run a whole system. Plenty if power and compact in size The I'd sub is prolly good enough. They are usually nice sq subs in the right box tho

Well I was thinking just a little extra at first but you know how that goes later.

So now now I want to go bigger and better so that if I want it, I have it. I can always turn it down right?

I listen to all types of music from rock n roll to heavy metal at times to Reggae to hip hop and R&B.

I like it loud a lot of the times and I want it clean and I want it to hit when it calls for it.

I have not purchased the amp yet either.

I do want Alpine amps though.

The Alpine amps I have chosen are the MRV-line.

This the amp mounting board and sub kit I'm installing.

The alpines are decent amps you should be able to get up to 2000 rms before upgrading the alt and adding an extra battery. Just get a big3 kit and you should be fine
