    proposed system for friend...

    i'm coming up with a system for my friend. he's going to buy everything from the local shop i get my stuff from, but we picked out most of what he wants, i just want some opinions.
    he knows he wants the eclipse 3434 HU, and he knows he wants diamond audio m3 components up front (no rear speaker upgrade, just gonna run the stocks off the HU).
    here is where it gets fuzzy.
    he likes JL subs, and also likes those JL e series amps. the cheapest route would be something like an e2150 (2 channel) and a e1200 (monoblock) with 2 12W0. he doesnt want the 12W0, but rather a 12W3v2 or 12W6v2.

    good = e2150 + e1200 + 12W3v2
    better = e4300 + e4300 + 12W3v2
    best = e4300 + e1400d (out soon) + 12W6v2

    along with all of this, he wants an alarm, but, the alarm takes a backseat to all of the audio, so if he goes for the "best" system, he will get a basic alarm, where as if he goes for "good" he will get a nice alarm with remote start and that jazz.

    if it were you, which would you get?

    Why not save up so he can get the best of both worlds? Also, power is power, why does he need JL amps too? Seems kind of pointless, you can get an amp that does nerely the same for a lot less.

    he wants JL because he feels they have a good reputation and that they make quality products (like me, he wants some assurance to what he buys).
    he doesnt want to save up more becuase he saved up enough already and doesnt want his money continually going into his car (he has $1500 for this).
    i was telling him to get memphis amps at first (the shop sells those also), but memphis has been a let down, there 1000D is great and makes more than rated power, but there M class amps have not been making close to rated power, maybe it was a bad batch, i dunno.

    he isnt an internet shopper (he doesnt even have a credit card) and he wants all things from my local shop, here are the brands they carry if anyone has a different suggestion: RF, memphis, JL, diamond, clarion, eclipse, concept and pioneer/panasonic (radios only).
    he only wants to amplify the front components, and he only wants one sub. i was thinking the "better" system, with that it seems that everything is getting the proper power and its good on price.
