Glasswolf, could I please have your opinions / recommends on this setup?

I Currently have a single pre-out deck. I recently purchased 2 x 10" GT100 JBL subs. power range 55-250 watts RMS,peak power 1000 watts, frequency range 28-500 Hz sensitivity 90 dB SPL , impedance 4 ohms.

I was going to purchase 4 x Sony XS-V1640H 6.5" speakers ( 4 ohm impedance, 60 watt RMS ) due to my untuned ear preferring their "sound" to other displayed speakers.

As for subs, I was planning on daisy--chaining these two Kenwood subs based on price/ features:

KAC 8401: 60 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms, 90 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms, 50-200 Hz high-pass/low-pass crossovers, 12 dB/octave, preamp- and speaker-level inputs, preamp outputs.

KAC 8151D: (RMS) 200 watts x 1 at 4 ohms 400 watts x 1 at 2 ohms 500 watts x 1 at 1 ohm. 50-200 Hz low-pass crossover, 18 dB/octave subsonic filter (off/15/ 25 Hz), 18 dB/octave bass boost (off/6/9/12 dB at 90 Hz) with wired remote speaker- and preamp-level inputs preamp outputs

What do you think of my amp selection?
What do you think would be the best way to wire this?
Is there something better you would recommend in the same price range?

I do not have any electrical experience so I will take your word on it.

I'm not a an of sony or kenwood, but aside from that, those amplifies should fit the speakers just fine.
you will need an electronic crossover though if you only have one pre-out pair.
an audiocontrol 3xs or coustic xm3 would work.
that'll take one input pair and split them to 6 amp channels. R/F/S
