    looking for new setup...help please

    im looking to get some stuff for my wifes car when i came across this website so decided to ask for help.

    budget is ~ $1000...id rather not go over but will if i absolutely have to.

    old system was 2 sony xplod subs hooked up to 2 sony 760w amps...IMO it sounded good cuz it was loud. but i want her's to be better and from what i get from a friend what i had was ****....his opinion, not mine. i asked him what are some good brands to look at he named: JL, JBL, and Orion. im not asking what the top brand is, i know different brands do different things. i just want a system that she can enjoy and a little thump.

    either way id like to upgrade. her car is a 2004 Honda Civic coupe

    i was looking at getting:

    1 JL 12W6V2

    1 JL 500/1

    i think all 4 speakers inside are 6.5 so id fit those with infinity speakers...i wanted to do everything myself so i wanted to stay away from component but if its worth it overall i'll go ahead and get those all around.

    my other question is will i have to have a capacitor or one an optima battery for the back?? never used either before but i dont want to short anything out if thats gonna be a problem.

    anything else i need to include let me know.

    ive never heard of those subs but they look nice...i'll have to add those in consideration.

    about the front and back speakers i know its a little extra money but are the infinity speakers much better than the RF speakers in clarity?

    she has the factory unit but i was told that if i get an amp for the inside speakers then i dont need to replace the head unit...is that not right?

    well i think i have narrowed it down to this:

    POWER ACOUSTIK A3000DB CAR AUDIO CLASS D MONO AMP 3000W - $296

    ORION H2 12.2 SPL 12" CAR AUDIO SUBWOOFER SUB NEW - $270

    POWER ACOUSTIK A600-4HP CAR AUDIO 4 CHANNEL AMP 600W - $82.50

    INFINITY 63.7i CAR AUDIO KAPPA 6 1/2" DOOR SPEAKERS NEW - $110

    add $52 shipping and i got everything for

    $810

    im gonna think about a deck but still gotta get the box and wires.

    when it comes to the box...what do i need to look for? ported...sealed?

    thanks for the help guys...now i'll probably sit back and read as much info as i can on this site...great stuff
