Default Audio help needed...

Hi. Okay, bear with me on this! Below are my audio plans for my '91. Everything listed I have already in a big box in my dining room and is going into my Bonne. All I need to buy are a capacitor (maybe?) and a good set of 6x9s for midrange and highs. Any suggestions are appreciated.
-Aiwa head unit w/rear RCA pre-out
-Sony Xplod XM-745 800w amp (4 channel)
-Sony Xplod xs-w4621 4x6s 120w
-4-Gauge 1,000 watt amplifier install kit
-2 Rockford Fosgate 12" Punch Z woofers (might get different ones)
-2 bass blockers for front speakers

Does anyone forsee any problems with this setup? Thanks in advance for your help!
I just need to figure out where to run the power wire through the firewall so I can power my amp. :( The amp will also power the 6x9s whenever i get a good pair.

Since you got the RF'* for the doors, whats to stop you from going with RF for the 6x9s? Personally I'm a Pioneer man for the rear deck speakers. They made my 89 SE rock and was the best bang for the buck.

Audiophiles and fill in here for the rest of it

Sounds like a plan; I've always preferred Pioneer 6x9s. I'll go looking for a set later today I guess. Thanks for the reply!!

ive got pioneers for my 6x9'* and rockford for the components. the rockfords are decent but the tweeters are easily staticy if too much sound goes to them. i just divert the sound a few notches to the 6x9'*. solves that pretty well!

sadly i just found some pioneer components at best buy. they sound a lot better then the rockfords and im pretty pissed that i bought the rockfords now... oh well!

I would stick with the same components & 6x9'*. You could also add 6 1/2'* in the door. Thats what I did and increased the sound alot.

Looks good. Aiwa headunit will be fine. For 6x9s, you can go with any high quality speaker. To match the front RF'* in tonal balance, I'd maybe find a good used set on EBay, of if you have the $$$ you can buy new.

Then u have either gotten lucky or really taken care of urs. Aiwa uses low tolerance internals and inexpensive parts to build thier equipment.
