    New to car audio, need suggestions on system

    Well this winter break i plan to put a system in my 97 nissan maxima. here is what i have researched so far and have come up with:

    headunit: JVC KD-SH9750 plays mp3s/wma/cd $240, most i wanna pay is $250
    sub: infinity perfect 12.1D $140
    fronts: infinity 60.5cs components
    rear: uhh..dunno...suggest me something
    mono amp: JBL BP600.1 $190
    wiring: what do i need?
    sub enclosure: infinity recommends a 1.0 cubic feet sealed box...where can i get that?
    2 way amp: JBL P180.2 $135
    do i even need this or will the deck be sufficient to power the components

    what else do i need? nothing is totally decided so i am up to suggestions for any of the parts. i am mostly looked for the best price/performance and my budget is around $800 but i will spend a lil more if its a very noticeable difference. going for sq not spl

    look into www.ikesound.com for all that stuff u wanted. should be cheaper, u dont need rear speakers so dont worry about that. wiring, just buy a walmart wiring kit and yes, u will need a 2ch amp for ur components, otherwise u wont get the most out of them.
    im sure theres better stuff for 800bucks but someone else will have to do the research. all im gonna say is edesigns K series

    yeah, i was getting all my prices from ikesounds. i will need some new rear speakers because my current speakers are all bose which are different wiring and run only off the bose hu.

    u got me wrong. u dont need any rear speakers. not even the factory ones, dont worry about not hooking them up. a goog set of comps will give u the rearfill u need.

    Re: New to car audio, need suggestions on system

    i took a look at these subs from edesigns and i like what the company stands for. here are the ones i am looking at
    http://www.edesignaudio.com/ep2/12k.htm

    now how do these compare to the perfect 12.1d's? are they more sq based or spl based?
