Hi all. I am getting ready to start buying stuff for a totally new build and would welcome any comments. My goal is sound quality for acoustic, vocals, blues, and rock at moderate volume levels.

Build will be 2-way components in the front and coaxials in the back, with passive crossovers. 10" sub in the rear deck.

Sound Deadener Showdown (SDS) Sound deadener and MLV
Focal 165 KR components, though I welcome opinions since I have not listened to them, yet.
Focal PC 165 coaxials
Gladen One 130.4 DSP - Class AB
Audison AP 1D Amp for the sub [email protected], Class D
Undecided on the SW, since I am not sure about going shallow or not

The 6.5s will go in the stock locations, as will the tweeters in the front. There is room for a three-way component system behind the grill as well, but having trolled the forums it seems like the improvement of sound would be negligible. Sub will be in a sealed box on the rear deck, about 4.5" deep.

Local shop will tune the system after install.

Any thoughts?

Ditch the rears and put that money towards something like a mini-dsp and run an active 2 way + sub setup. The mini dsp will allow you to dial in the sound you're looking for.

Never liked dsp in an amp, makes tuning a pita. Plus the dsp in the amp is only for setting HP/LP no TA and no eq.
