Default audio revamp plans

Tell me what you think, constructive comments only please!

HU: Kenwood Excelron KDC-X789
Front speakers: CDT EF61 or CDT EF51
amp for speakers: JBL 80.4(really cheap one on ebay right now) or possibily a Hifonics amp (open to other suggestions)

I might also have a cheap way to get a Kenwood 11band EQ which I might use also.

subs...I am going to live with what I have until I can gather more funds.

what ever dude I'm just tryin to save you a few hundred buck. But I will also tell you I can get just as much Sq ( Sound Quailty) out of my amp and deck then you can with your Eq and it is easy to adjust.

i had the kenwood eq youre probably looking at. the 9044? its a great peice, i used it with a cheap sony deck.

you say youre going to buy a kenwood deck, but a premier is in your sig. the premier has 6.5V outs, the kenwood eq has 4V. the eq is rated for 4V input max

oh, ok, you dont have a premier model. the 770 is premier, 7700 is the lower end with lower volt preamps
