Default Rick's Build. SSA, Alpine, Boston Acoustics

I figured it was time to start a build log as I'm hoping this setup will stay in my car for a bit. Over the past year I have changed setups more times than I can count. I have yet to be completely happy with my system as a whole, so I sold everything aside from my Pioneer 880, and decided to start from scratch. My main goal is to have a system that sounds good to me with the ability to get fairly loud for when I'm in the mood. This will most likely take at least a month to complete as I still need to decide what subs to go with, then add build time. I should have some pics of the gear, and progress pics up by tomorrow. So far I have purchased the following:

Head unit: Pioneer p880 prs
Components: Alpine SPX-17PRO
Front Stage Amp: Boston Acoustics GT 2125
Sub woofer amp: Planet Audio BB1400.1 (Might change it but couldn't pass up the deal I got on it)
Sub woofers:Throwing around a lot of ideas but will most likely be GCON's (Size/Quantity still up in the air)
Electrical: Stock 125 amp alt, Diehard platinum G34 under the hood, and Kinetik HC2000

I'm definitely going with SSA. The GCON is at the top of my list, but I'm not ruling out the XCON either

A few pics of the components



Some neo in the rear





I HATE spade terminals so I was pleasantly surprised to see the option of using an allen set screw instead.
