Welcome! The type r is a nice sounding sub. I'd put it in a 1.25 cubic foot sealed enclosure and get at least a 600 watt amp for it (if you can't get a 1k watt amp).
I've used those Pioneer comps and they were pretty good for the price. Never heard the kenwoods so I can't compare them. Personally, I would run the nvx amp because it has more power than the kenwood. Maybe sell the stuff you aren't gonna use so you can get a strong sub amp if you're on a budget?

I'm in Lodi on business next week, actually.... It would be cool to get together and talk about building a system... A treat I've never experienced in my business travels... PM me if you like... I may not have the answers you want to hear, but I will have an opinion.

Get some sound deadner, especially for the rear plastic piece behind the seats.

Also use a DSP since I'm assuming you are keeping the stock HU and want to run active in the future.

I don't intend on buying a processor yet, it's out of my budget at the moment. Also my headunit has time alignment and built in crossovers. At this time my biggest concerns are...
Proper speaker installation for good midbass
Tweeter placement for good imaging
And wether to have and high frequency rear fill?

If you have the time and energy, look at the MiniDSP 2x4, it's a pretty inexpensive DSP with plenty of options.

Thanks ill look into it. Can you explain what advantage the mini DSP would bring over my headhunit's built in crossovers and time alignment?

I have those same kenwood components. The tweeters were a little bright around 10k, overall they were decent.

But for a little more money I upgraded to some audison prima components. They really improved the imaging and clarity. Wish I bought them to start with.

Or maybe some polk db6501's, havent heard them in person but they have good reviews.

What headunit are you referring to? At the current moment there's only a couple of headunits I would deem decent enough to not consider an outboard dsp, the 80prs & P99rs. All others will compromise heavily by missing a key function at least in a one seat tune, left & right eq. Also, infinitely variable phase adjustment on the sub is something that's very useful that I know of no headunit to include at this time. 180 flips barely cut the mustard.
