JL amps seem to be nice and nicer, Pheonix gold are also very good. You've got some good choices there, W7 gets my vote

Hoo boy. You opened up a big can of worms asking for preferences. I say get a Zapco amp and a pair of W7'*, you'll knock your ears right off instead of going deaf gradually.

I'm sure you've seen TaylorD '* install, maybe some chrome trim on the box around plexi or something would go well with that bling bling you already bring.
