Post ( I V I ) Audio Upgrade !

Hello Guys -

So far i've selected these Equipment for my setup -
Head Unit => Stock Alpine 6CD Changer
Front Components => Hertz HSK-165 Or any other ?
Rear Coaxials => ?
Subwoofer => Image Dynamics ID12"v.3
4 Channel Amplifier => ?
Wiring => Connection audison or any other ?
Fuse => ?

Is rear coaxials is necessary or just front components will do the job fine ? Any idea on the prices for the above equipment ?

Thanks for looking.

hey, thats a cool way of writing civic. u have chosen decent equipment for your car. i too own a civic v. i too have a ID12" in a sealed enclosure with DLS speakers in the rear and DLS reference compos in the front. audison 4 channel amp with audison wiring. anyways hertz make pretty good speakers. i think you can go for the rear speakers if you like a surround sound experience and u sit at the back too. but if u'r driving most of the time, then there's no need. if u stay in delhi, i'd like to listen to your setup when its done, as i am also running everything through the stock HU, so just want to compare the quality.

Head Unit => Stock Alpine 6CD Changer (good if on budget)
Front Components => Hertz HSK-165 Or any other ? (I would anyday recommend Illusion Luccent as it has a sweet tweeter and natural sound)
Rear Coaxials => ? (not req)
Subwoofer => Image Dynamics ID12"v.3 (Try listing to different subs GZRW)
4 Channel Amplifier => ?(what budget)
Wiring => Connection audison or any other ? (You can try GZ cables also)
Fuse => ? (comes with the kit)

Luccent is for 16k approx. There is no good speaker from kicker side.

You can go for GZ Titanium amp.

:: Ground Zero :: Amplifier / GZTA 4.120MKČ

for approx 10k.

Any particular reason behind ID amp. They are best know for there subs
