my thoughts right now are 1 10" sub, I"ve heard good things about mag, and infinity.

up front I'm thinking focal 3 way setup in the doors, and maybe another 6.5 or 8 in the kicks.
haven't got through he amps and xr's yet

I got 2 12 Infinitys, a set of 6.5 and 5.25 Infinity component speakers, headunit, two amps, box etc for under that price. it can certainly be done.

man thats half the budget there.

Id do Focal 2-ways(3-ways take a but load of power to run and arent as loud do to the X_over) and a ported custom box for a Focal 11" downfiring under the backseat and do a Focal 4 channel amp to run it all

given the requirments in my truck, since that is close to what all are trucks are, what would be your dream setup within the requirments given, you can skip the budget if it restricts too much.

Well, I'm not done installing, but here's what's going into my setup which is intended mostly for SQ, but being able to be a bit loud and obnoxious when I want.

H.U. - Pioneer 880PRS - MSRP $500 - Paid $325 (WoofersEtc)
Amp - JBL 755.6ii - MSRP $475 - Paid $285 (Cardomain)
JBL Remote Bass Control -MSRP $? - Paid $15 (Cardomain)
Spkrs - Focal 165V2s - MSRP $450 - Paid $195 (Individual - 3months old perfect. Came with receipt from authorized dealer and warranty card)
Sub - JL Stealthbox - MSRP $575 - Paid $126 (found it on eBay unloaded for $1 + shipping. Loaded with a JL 10w3v3 I found for $100
Sound Deadening (Raamatt) - - Paid $233 (Raamaudio.com)
Wiring - Kicker CK44 kit - MSRP $? - Paid $51 after getting Cardomain to pricematch. (Cardomain - pricematched to shipsound)
Misc. Adapters for steering, harness, mount, etc. - Paid $120 total (individual for some, hookedontronics.com for PAC SWI-PS)

So, total under $1400 considering DIY and all quality equipment (at least to me). :imo Amp will be running bridged 3 channel. 300RMS to sub, 160x2 RMS for the Focals. :endofshow
