there're better alternatives for similar prices:

1. Pioneer deh-p960mp $400
2. you can get a cheaper 1 farad cap, do you really need one anyway?
3. i guess for the price, you can stick with those hifonic amps, but look into Rockford fosgates, too
4. subs, definitely get RE triple X for that price, i have confidence that glasswolf knows what he's talking about :-)
5. you'll need a 1 ga amp kit, which can run over $100 as well

Yeah, you can't contact them by e-mail because their internet is down or something. Call them directly. That's how i ordered mine.

If you're going to get a new HU, get the one that plays dvd and surround sound. There's not much difference in price.
As for sub amp, are you set on getting Hifonics? They're not the greatest for your money. On paper, all the amps sound similar, but they don't perform the same. You might want to read up on Zapco brand even if you're not buying it.
Have you thought about leaving some money for HO alternator for your car? With 2000W, you will need it for sure along with 0 gauge power wires.
If I were you, I'd invest in the HO alternator, new power wiring and excellent component speakers before you run out of money. You can start with 1 amp then add 2nd later after your car's power is stable.
If not, you're just asking for car problem.
