There is a stciky that might help. Forgive the author! :-)

For 30K I'd do this...

Spend 8K on a HU with 3 preouts. Blau, Pioneer, Kenoowd, 6K on front, 5K on a pair of 6x9 in the rear OR 3K on a pair of 4" in the stock locations AND 4K on a sub in a box, 7K on an amp and the rest (3-4K) on damping the front doors OR trunk.

If you buy all your stuff at your installer you should get a free install AND/OR a discount bringing everything to under 30K.

I would suggest that you get a compo for your frnt but for that you need a good installer. Check out what you want and ping back or we may confuse you!

HU: Pio 6950 (8K)
Front: Stock provision is 4". JBL GTO427 (about 3K)
Rears: Stock provision is 5.25": JBL GTO527 (about 3.5K)
Amp: Pio 6100/6200 4-ch amp (about 8K)
Sub: JBL GT4-12 & a ported box (about 6.5K)
Power & RCA: Stinger/Twister/Other good brand (about 3K)
Damping: 3-4K
Total: About 36K.

Getting comps in front will be difficult if you want to use the stock locations in the dash (difficult to get comps that size). A good installer can cut the doors and install 5.25" or 6.5" midbasses. In that case you can go for comps (GTO 507c or GTO 607c).

You don't need separate tweeters if you get coaxials or components.

I've only mentioned one brand (and series) here as a starting point. Compare/listen to products of the comparative series in other brands (Alpine E type/Blau GT series or TS series/Hertz Dieci series) also.

You'll find lots of similar installs if you search TBHP.

a) the JBL 4-12 (not 412) will need a good box. budget 1K for that.
you can get a JBL 300.1 to drive the 4-12 for 10K or a 75.4 and use 2 channels to drive the front and use the HU to drive the rears.

b) one install I saw was where the person had used a pair of 6" woofers in the door mated to a coaxial in the dash. The tweeter that came with the component set was use in the rear alongside a pair of 6x9s On a MDF plank. the front soundstage was good. He had one 4ch. amp driving the front and drove the rears and extra tweeter of the HU's rear channel. What impressed me was the front sound stage. Speakers were Alpine, HU and amp were Pio.
