The big slice of info that's needed is budget. I can tell you to get some TRU amps, but if you don't have the funds, it's no use. Same goes for HU and speakers. Let me know.

Price is not the biggest issue..I guess under $600 that will push the subs good.....I'm not looking for a competition type system....I just like the sound of the W6.....As far a the HU.....best deal under $600....

I would look into an Alpine HU and maybe an Alpine or JL amp (digital) so it takes up less space.

A Pioneer HU would be ok, I would stay away from JVC or Soundstream
I would a assume double dn? maybe AVH-P4100DVD

For an amp maybe a Slash V2 500/1 I don't think you need anything larger

Well to get a legit DVD/NAV/MP3 Unit $600 might be pushing it. As for the amp: http://www.edesignaudio.com/product_...products_id=44 it's only $195 now, but they don't ship till Jan, but it would allow you to push full rms to each sub.

This is avail, now: http://www.woofersetc.com/p5642/16PR...-Amplifier.htm

The issue is getting the most out of your amps with your sub configuration. You're looking at a 1-ohm or 4 ohm load. So getting an amp that will run 1-ohm stable is the key. And that Memphis above should work like a champ.

Guess I should have asked in my above post. But, do you just want DVD capability or do you want Nav/Bluetooth/SD and USB slots?

And I know you said price isn't a big deal, but JL's are pricey amps and you can get quality for less. Unless you go used, like i did. I caught a big break on both my amps, but I doubt I would have got them a MSRP....... The amp I posted above would do you just fine. If you're ok with 300rms to each sub, this is also a good option: http://www.woofersetc.com/p5478/PDX1...-Amplifier.htm

Both suggestions less than a new JL.

Thanks for the amp info....That Memphis looks pretty good.....But I like the price of the other on too.....

As far as the HU.....I'm not super concerned with a NAV....just the ability to add on to the HU later if I want to.....
