I would say first before you get all that speakers/subs/amps spend time planning electrical and dampening for a 1.5k system. Buy sound deadner at least, and if you want some MLV tiles or CCF. Spend hours deadening spot speakers are going, dampen trunk/reardeck/doors/sidewalls and cover holes well. Next layer MLV or CCF on top for more insulation/road noise reduction. Then lets get the electrical going, get 1/0 do the big 3 first Approx 5-7ft. Then get 1/0 and a nice second battery for the trunk. Run the 2 batteries together in parallel approx 30-40ft. Now that you've got your electrical and dampening needs fulfilled come back with a budget for patch cords/amps/head unit/speakers/subs.
    perfect approach!

    K well guys i had him read this and he got some nice little sa-12's ordered and a 1.5k amp and some CDT coaxs and a pioneer headunit. we went to bestbuy for the head unit and coaxs and put on bass blockers and they sound great for $75 a pair and he can't wait for the subs to get here. Thank you to everyone with this. Especially the people who showed him the light about the electrical dealio. He just wouldn't believe me on that 2k thinger. i'm thinking they'll be neat.
