Default Help deciding on new system

First off I have had a few systems in the past the last being 4 sa-10 with a aq3500.however I recently got a new vehicle. I need some advice for a sub 2k$ build.
Right now I'm looking at the following.
Vehicle:08 Silverado ext cab.
Box: aero port on passenger side for 4 8s
Subs: 4 hds208
Amp: crescendo 3500
Headunit:AVH-X5700BHS
Wiring: knu 1/0 ofc
I'll probably buy a 50ft roll of wire to do big 3 and be easy until I can afford a high output alternator.
What's your guys opinions on this setup. I'll be raising my rear seats 1.5 inches with 2x4 blocks for spacers to give room for a bigger box

Seems like a great plan, I think you can get better sub's but more expensive for sure!

Good Luck sir,

Kindest Regards.

Yeah I want to stay under 2000$ right now I'm looking at 480$ for subs, 780$on amp, 370$ for deck that's 1630$ not counting box material and wiring and the small things like dash trim kit and harness etc. If you have other recommendations please shoot them my way. I'm not set in stone yet.
What would be a good sub upgrade at like 150$per sub?and is that Headunit as good as people say?

As far as I know the best bang for the buck is the Pioneer 80PRS, sub's look at Sundown I mean SA/X, you know SA-8 has done a lot of big things and still holding very well,
If you go with SQ sub's I think their 3500.1 would do higher wattage and it has dual inputs some claim that it's power hungry but couldn't find a proof yet,
For wiring do OFC as you know you'd spend time wiring your car so fining a corrosion on your wires would piss you off lol,

Good Luck,
Kindest Regards.

Lol all I know is I couldn't find anything other than the NEX I mean screen H/U, I think the BHS has no built in crossovers A.K.A. Not active H/U?
If you're good with other lines just do it and make sure you get high output RCA's,

Kindest Regards.

Yeah the pioneer nex and bhs both have 3 4v outputs
If I can get a skar 3500.1 and 4 skar zvx8v2 subs for 1300$ is that a better setup
