    stepping up to a big boy system ... got a few questions and need some opinions

    How's everyone doing ? I've been into audio for quite awhile but due to budget restrictions I've never really had a system I was truely happy with ( most of it being second hand rockford , jl , mtx, so name brand but not fantabulous equipment ) with that being said I now make plenty of money and really wanna put a system together I absolutely adore lol .. I have the rough outline and some of the stuff picked out and have started purchasing some of it first I will give you the run down on what I'm thinking .

    HU: undecided but I want a double din that can control an ipod
    Mid amp : I'm thinking 2 jl audio hd600/4s 1 for front stage and 1 for rear .. intending on ditching component crossovers and using the amps built in crossovers
    Subs : audioque HDC4 18" X2 ... 12 cube box tuned around 35hz
    Sub amp : audioque 3500.1D .. gonna start with one and maybe move to 2 later if one doesn't fit my taste

    Now I am at a loss on what components I should run and what kinda electrical I'm going to need especially in the taste of extra batterys ... I'd rather have a lil much than not enough lol ... Id like to run 2 set of 6.5 components but need them to be able to take power without having an overly bright tweeter ... I like more of a natural mellow sound ... As for the electrical I do plan on atleast one mechman alternator but need recommendations on batterys .. both is brand and quantity lol

    Thanks in advance for the help guys and gals

    Re: stepping up to a big boy system ... got a few questions and need some opinions

    I have budgeted around 500-750 per set of components ...electrical upgrades the budget is open .. I'm not made of money but do work my *** to get so I'm not against spending it .. I have no bills and make roughly 4-6k a month ... I spent almost 600 on wiring for the setup the other day .. so just realistic equipment .. not gonna spend 5k on a set of focal 3ways .. but don't mind spending a good bit lol

    Don't mind spending a little more but don't really want to mess with a three way setup .. would prefer to stay with a two way with a simple mid and tweeter ... Three ways just have left a bad taste in my mouth after helping a friend get his three way set sounding right lol

    I kinda like the specs on the cdt es-62i set ... Looks like they would fit the bill quite well ... Just wish there was somewhere around here I could hear them myself lol ... Just worried about which tweeter option and whether or not the tweeter are going to be overly bright
