Default new sound system enroute!

Ordered 2 pairs of Volfenhag 4 way 800watt 6x9'* and 450watt 2 way 6 1/2'* for the front doors. If they sound good they will stay. If not, back to Pioneer. Also, I got a Pioneer DEH-P7700 coming too. Got that one off of ebay for $100. I also got a newer set of MTX Thunder 8000 12'* from a guy on craigslist yesterday for $120 in the box and bought a ported box earlier today for them. I already had a new 1200 watt SPL amp for the subs but they are 1000 watts apiece and I wont be anywhere near the max for them. Hopefully it will come out sounding good as the last system in my Riviera.

Yeah I got everything installed now. The guy I ordered the stereo from shipped me the wrong stereo and I installed it (it was a Pioneer DEH-P6700) and I said instead of sending it back I would install it in my girflriends car and I paid the average cost of a 6700 on ebay for the 7700, which I originally won for $125 with shipping. So I got two decks now. Man, the system is loud as hell! You can hear every word a block away. I have to get a D class amp though. I have 500 watt rms subs and they are only pushing out 500 watts apiece on my weak *** amp. The ported box makes a big difference though.
