Need System

I just got my car and fully intend to audioize it (Y).

I am looking for volume but just as much quality... I have a 12 thou stereo setup in my house so I definitely know a bit about high end gear. If my car is sounds like crap I'll refuse to turn it on regardless of SPL.

I'm thinking maybe like a Boston SPG555 with an Infinity Amp, and maybe a Clarion Deck? I'm a Boston guy so I'm thinkin Boston Z's, but probably just pros, and a Boston amp with the Components..

I am new to car audio and have no idea what sort of power mods to take into account. I also dont really have any means of fabrication at the moment, but I'd like to still have a trunk when my system is done.

Tell me what you guys think!!! Thanks alot!

how much power do you wanna run, if it over 800wrms i'd look into upgrading you alt. so i take it your looking for sql subs, i hear those bostons are nice, but some others you might wanna look into are AA, FI, SI, Crystal, RE, DD, ID just to name a couple. for amps i haven't heard much about infinity, so i couldn't say if there good or bad.

I coudn't find an Avalanche... sry I'm new to this market! I found the RAA 1000, and it doesnt look too bad.

My emphasis is firmly on SQL, but I need a good bit of SPL as well. I'm looking at putting my system together over the next few months, and I'm just trying to get a good feel for things before I make any investments.

I like Boston's SPG555 because, even though it's pricey, it will put out and I won't have to build a huge box. (I will need help building a box, BTW :-)) To power that sub I am looking for a good amp with a high RMS, not just a peak. Keeping price in mind I've been looking at amps with ~500 RMS.

Similarly I'm looking for a good set of Components up front, and a decent set of coax in the back.

My most persistant question right now; what's pros/cons of 2/4 ohm? Is 4 ohm better SPL?
