Since you have ordered two pairs of components, a four channel is required to play the same..
For the sub you could go for a decent monobloc or even a good 2 ch amp will suffice..
OR
Power the rear components from the HU itself so that the 4 ch amp cn drive the front compos as well as the sub(bridged mode).

13000-15000. Try getting a good 4 channel amp in that range.
I dont think that you will get a mono and a 4 channel for that price range.
For the Sub in 5k range i would recommend you GZ MK2 ( retails for around 5.5k i guess)

Take around 500 for the enclosure.
Wiring should be around 2000 i guess.
Do get Damping.
Very necessary for the swift
All the best.

With B&W or without?

Also, if you're going to be driving most of the time, I suggest you put the JL Audio components up front. Sweet sweet sound!

Why don't you look at Soundstream for amplification or try and source a J Audio A4300/e4300 from the USA? Retails for about $250 on woofersetc.com. An absolute steal at the price.

Firstly, congratulations on your brilliant choice of setup. On a car like the swift, the doors are great for housing the speakers. My advice, use the door components as planned. Yes you would need a good 4 channel amp and 1 2 channel amp which can be used in the following way.

2 Channel amp for Sub and 4 channel for speakers
or
4 channel amp for 1 sub and 2 back components with the 2 channel amp powering 2 front components.

Here you need to pay fine attention to the amp. Make sure the output on each channel is atleast 40-50w else you'll end up underpowering your system and though the setup is great, the output wont be. Furhter ensure you spend on wiring with a good gauge quality else you'll lose power due to the travel distance of the wire. Should cost you about 2-2.5k for the whole setup. Try n keep the amp as close as possible to the sub. Good amps are Kickers - 14500, JBL GTOs - 10000 and MTX(4 channel) - 18500.

Good luck...

D1ISTHE1 open the images with paint and save them with .JPEG extension. file size will reduce considerably. then try uploading again.
