only a 350 watt for ur door speakers go with an infinty 4ch 400w amp for your door speakers and a 800w for your subs at least , the more watts u have running to ur speakers u will driving the amps less = less distorsion =bad or blow speakers,

Well in my opinion thats a pretty good deal. JL audio is not just a name they make good quality speakers. I have a jl audio 500 running 2 12 w3's and it is almost to loud. Have no distortion. I paid 1300 bucks to have the amp and speakers insalled. Mainly a convience thing, plus that includes full lifetime replacement warrenties. If anythin quits workin i pull in sit down and they replace it. So 1800 bucks is a real good price. The 10's w1's are 100 bucks a piece. The box is worth at least 250. Amp is prolly 500 installed 300 for the other.

As far as having them install the amps its the way to go. These guys install stereo's all day they know exactly how to set the amps for the set up they are saling you.

No, that doesn't sound right at all. For the sub to sound decent, you'll want to at least double the power. Also, your truck will use 6x8 speakers, not 5x7. Hell, that whole system needs more power. Give each door speaker at least 100 watts each.

Just because I kiss the prettiest girls and I drive my truck too fast, why does everybody want to kick my @ss?
