If you're looking for crazy super loud, Sundown neo pros and a set of super tweets on a metric **** ton of power should do the trick.

You'll want to go active (or make your own passive crossovers) and use some high end pro audio, such as B&C. You'll need a 3 way front stage if you do so, because pro audio needs to be crossed over higher and lacks in the midbass region.

Ground zero uraniums in a active set up. But you'll need at least 2 sets

This might sound weird, but after listening to some Hybrid Audio Technologies (HAT as I know them), and some Maestro component sets, I found some Kenwood eXcelon speakers that sounded better to me.
I don't think you should be basing your purchase off what someone else recommends to you. Go hear for yourself and find what you like... Or go buy some Kenwoods because I said so.

The kenwoods do rock. Here's a link in case you want to consider them(although they can be found cheaper elsewhere(Theres a vendor or two on this site which I'm sure would be willing to work with you also)). They are seriously pack an awesome bang for the buck ratio.
Kenwood Excelon XR-1800P 7" component speaker system at Crutchfield.com (http://www.crutchfield.com/p_113XR1800P/Kenwood-Excelon-XR-1800P.html?tp=106)

I also have a sweet spot for DLS, but I do like the pricier sets.

Are you going to build new speaker mounts? Do you need to keep a low key appearance? The way I handle requests like this is with a consultation to try to get the customer something to best suit their needs without being restricted to a pre-existing speaker system. If that interests you get in touch with me privately, please.

5kw substage and "just need em to get loud", then why are you looking at $1k comp sets and super SQ 4ch amps?????

Personally I would want to hear speakers in person if dropping $1k on a set vs what somebody on a forum recommends...

Trust me i agree. But the problem is. Nibody in my near area would have anywhere near a nice set of speakers. So that options very limited for me

If you'd care for suggestions of high end shops to visit I think that would be worth your time. You have a Retailer of the Year award winning shop not far from you.

Again if spending $1k for a set of comps I'd be willing to drive a few hours to hear them in person and make sure MY ears like them....

So he can dump them into stock locations and brag about their super SQ due to the names on the box.. Kinda like running some SQ HDC4's in a sealed box and bragging about how loud you are...

If you want to get loud for 1000 and still sound good. Pick up some high end pro audio mids from B&C, BMS, 18sound and pair them with some image dynamic horns. You can get there for less than 1000, it'll blow away any component speaker in SPL and if you put them in the proper locations, you'll stage and image very well.
