    If you're actually going to do that system, don't use decent mids and then use those crap kicker subs.

    if you are going pro audio, you 1000% need to go active as in you need a head unit that can set crossovers and slopes properly which means no current kenwood head unit on the market as of now can do it. You can go to their sub family which is JVC and they have active head units or pioneer. IT makes the biggest difference, EQ will not tame your mids and tweeters, only a properly done active tune will.

    Without active networks you'll never get the full clean output out of your tweeter, you'll just get nasty peaky unpleasant ear shredding highs and mids that bleed too much into the treble range. Both of these together will make the whole system sound like garbage.

    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS................................Mids/Highs amp: CT 500.2, ppi 600.2, ppi 900.4 bridged
    Front stage: Two PWX 10s per door midbass only....... PRV 6MR500 midrange....... Massive CT 2 german tweeters.
    320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    I've certainly seen more than that. Not necessarily something I'd recommend a beginner try and tackle though.

    If 1 has to use that much speakers, 1 has to question the quality over quantity.
