    Need input on stereo kit I have..

    Hey guys, I'm new to the forum so go easy on me

    I have a Acura NSX and I'm putting together a stereo kit and I'd like some input.
    I want a 'no compromise' high quality system using 2 speakers and 1 sub.

    Right now, I have a Phoenix Gold Limited Edition Octane amp (one with CF trim...http://www.importtuner.com/features/.../photo_01.html )a PC925 battery, a RIO EMPEG MP3 player and a..... JL Audio Wx subwoofer enclosure made specificaly for the NSX (ok I should know this.. but not right now)

    ..Given those factors, the question is wirring.. Here is what I'm thinking about.
    1. Monster Cable 400 series power/ground cable. I am also strongly considered replacing my main batter power line that goes to the hatch/fuse box as it is rusted, old, oxydized etc... Any good reason for NOT doing this?
    2. All aroundMonster Cable 402 XLN+ speaker, RCA cabling for speakers and sub.
    3. Stinger SXBTM battery terminal w/ spiffy LED voltage display...
    4. Krome-style terminals all around wherever possible.
    5. Diamond Audio HEX speakers.

    What do you guys think? I know this isn't the 18 speaker type setup and that's not what I want. What I want is a flat out solid system, and also one that would work with top down... at 150 mph :P

    I play mainly techno music, R&B smooth jazz etc.. not a lot of rap etc..

    Thanks!

    u will be fine with monster cable if you want to dish out the cash.
    so are you looking for recommendations on new speakers?
    if so. an you are willing to put out cash.
    I would recommend Image Dynamics XS65 components and IDQ subs.
    Plus we muist have pics of the car. Cause NSX's are ****

    How much customizing are you willing to do? Would you consider a 3 way component set?

    Yeah, speakers and wirring
    Are there any other manufacturers of wiring with similar quality.. but less cost?

    What about Diamond Audio HEX's?
    Weight is also an issue here.. I don't want to go any heavier than I need to - do I need to get the thickest wires or not? I have been told that if it's too thick and not enough power draw.. it's actualy not good.
