Hi, I'd like to introduce myself first, My names Stephen I live in rural Montana, and love car audio. For the most part people here only have bestbuy crap and I'm looking to build a decent build mostly towards SPL looking for advice along the way. Currently gonna get some gear but later towards fall im looking to finish up this build fully, maybe end up with a wall for all i know.

Current setup:
Headunit:JVC KDR650
Dash:nothing
Front doors: cheap clarion coax
Rear doors: cheap clarion coax
Subwoofer(s): two 12in Powerbass M-series
Sub Amp(s): Pioneer GM-8601
Mids+highs amp: none
BATTS: 55ah Deka from Michaellane
ALT: stock
Wire: knukonceptz OFC

Plans
Headunit: Clarion CZ702
Dash: depends on what I can fit and where I wanna put my tweets
Front doors: component set don't have my heart set on any yet? Suggestions?
Rear doors: don't really care i leave the back seats down permantly
Subwoofer(s): DSS ethos 15in in 3 cubes at 33hz(eventually 2 this fall)
Sub amp(s): Crescendo BC2000 (maybe eventually 2 strapped? or 1 large amp if I can trade away or sell BC2000)
Mids+highs amp: probably PPI
BATTS: Probably something from Michaellane
ALT: 275amp from JS alts
Wire: a lot more knuconceptz wire...

Sorry for not updating this but nothing has happened since. But new plans!! Doing and SQL setup just bought a Vfl 175.1. And it's going to be powering 2 ampere audio 3.0 v2 15's. Still trying to decide on mids. Gonna go with some vifa x25 tweets in the pillars. Need some suggestions for mids and a head unit would be great.

80prs h/u

Yeah I was pretty set on that. Just wanted to see if there is anything else comparable out there

I would say go with pro audio drivers for your mids. They will be efficient and have no problems keeping up with your subs. The SQ are supposed to be good for cheap, or the Sundown neo pros or if you can spend more something from B&C, eminence, JBL/selenium. Its good to see someone fairly local on here. Build looks good so far.

Where are you located?? I'm in the bitterroot valley. And I was looking into silver flutes. I really want some of the exodus anarchy mids.

I am in Missoula, the anarchies are nice. I had a pair in one of my old cars. I actually just sold them. If you want good midbass and have plenty of power you can't go wrong with the anarchies. You have to thoroughly deaden and seal your doors though. I've seen a lot of good things about the silverflutes. I've never ran them myself.

Bad news. A whole bunch of gear had come in, was about ready to start doing some work in the car and post some pics but this Thursday I got rear ended really bad and the blazer has some pretty bad frame damage, I'm pretty sure she's totaled but I'll let you guys know. Might have to get a new ride
