Default Newbie????

I haven't had an aftermarket stereo in my cars for about 15 years or so, but I kept most of my old equipment. I just bought a beater 2009 Jetta TDI for my long commutes to work and thought I'd use some of my old stuff. However, I am missing components. With the laundry list I have below, would a couple sets of those new Sundown 6.5's work? I was thinking about the RE XXX 6.5's but it appears they may have changed them a few years ago and not what they once were. Any help is much appreciated.

3 - 10w6's
3 - 12w6's
2 - 1000 JLv1's
1 - 300.4v1
1 3100 XS battery.

Also, where is the best place to get 1/0 and terminals?

Welcome.

Nice gear you have laying around.

The Sundowns look very nice and I trust any product Jacob puts out, but I've yet to hear them in person. I wouldn't hesitate to use them if they caught your eye. The Image Dynamics CTX6.5's are also highly regarded in that price range.

I run the Ampere Audio components and love them, but they don't come with a crossover for the woofer so if you're set on running (2) sets, you're stuck running full range woofers.

I'm fairly certain your amp has active crossovers though, so you could disregard the rear set and spend a little more on the front set, run active and have a better result (in my opinion). You an pick up raw drivers and get a better set for cheaper.

Thanks for the reply, would it be worth the extra to go with the CXS's?

Would the 300.4 be enough to push either of them? I'm sure I will be changing things as it evolves, but just want to make sure I'm not way underpowered.

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm way behind when it comes to seperates. In my day it was all about MB Quarts and QM's but it doesn't sound like they are any good anymore? I know Focal's are good, but I'm not putting that kinda cash in a beater.
