Hey guys, first off let me say that this site is really awesome. I've been a lurker for a while and I've finally registered because I'm looking to get a descent setup in my new car. I can appreciate an awesome setup and I've seen some pretty crazy ones on this forum I'm just warning you that my setup isn't too crazy.
I'm had some experience with car audio stuff, I've installed a few setups but I've never dealt with separate tweeters and such.
I just bought a 2007 Honda Civic Ex coupe. It comes stock with a 7 speaker system and I'm looking to do a descent upgrade for it.
Here's what I have so far:
Head unit: I wanted all the gadgets in one so I found this on ebay. I think it suits my needs but I can't find any reviews on it

Speakers: Rockford T165-S. I'm debating whether I should go with the T165-S which have the crossovers and separate tweeters or just running T165 2 way speakers all way round. My biggest fear is I go through the effort of wiring everything and then blowing a tweeter. I also find it hard to find reviews on these speakers because some people say the tweeters are amazing and others say they are harsh and crackly (my guess is the people who wrote that review are not amping them).

Mid range speaker: My car comes stock with a 8" sub, instead I was thinking of throwing another speaker in there, again I went Rockford.

Amp for the five speakers: I believe that this amp will power my speakers, but again I'm not quite sure I got the amperage right. Let me know what you guys think.

The subs and amp for that I am taking out of my old car so I don't really need help for that.
They are just two 12" Rockford punch HE subs. And I have a Kenwood amp powering them. I don't have the model number for the amp but I can get it within the next few days.
I really just want to throw some nice crisp speakers in my car and have a system I never have to touch again. I went with Rockford because i've always been impressed with the quality and the sound of their products.
I appreciate anyone who made it through this novel and I look forward to all the advice.
Ps: I'm not sure if I have this posted in the right thread.
