Don't mix subs. Could cause cancellation issues if your gonna run the p3 subs get a 1000 rms amp for them If it where me. I'd sell all of it on craigslist and come back here for some new gear. Like a set of 15s. Sundown tantric xfl fi and so on. And a decent amp to push them. Also get a big 3 kit ,a agm battery , and some good wire

You're not going to shake anyone's vehicle with the equipment you've listed. Not trying to be a ****, just trying to save you time/disappointment. Do what Lows said and sell the stuff then come back here and we'll help you put together the groundpounder you're looking for.

Yea. If your trying to shake down the block then I've found the the DVD unit work best. If you get decently loud a regular cd deck. Even a good one will skip When you turn it up So what's your budget for a new deck ?

When it comes to decks i love my Alpine's, you might want to buy one with 3 sets of 4v outputs.

Single din or double din? I bought one of the newer Pioneer double din touchscreens and so far I've been very pleased with it. But I've also owned Alpine's & Clarion's in the past and had no issues.
