Default Competition, Should I or shouldn't I?

I have been away for car audio for a while now but have slowly been easing back into it; how things have changed.
Anyways, there is an audio competition coming up in Austin, TX July 21st that I was thinking about entering. I currently have two JL 12TW3-D4's under my backseat in a '15 F150 supercrew being pushed by an RF 1,200. I also have two JL C5 650 coax's in the rear doors and two JL C5 650 components in the A-pillars and front doors being pushed by an RF 600x4. I am currently running the stock HU and have an Audio Control LCi2. This setup was done in a hurry but really sounds quite amazing for a pair of pancakes.
I am building a box to add a third JL 12TW3-D4. Two of which will be pushed by a JL HD1,200 and the other by a JL XD 1,000 while all three speakers will be receiving 600 watts a piece. I am swapping out the RF 600x4 with a JL HD 600x4 while keeping my current mids and high (JL C5 650). I will also be adding an Audison Bit One processor.
Question, do you think I stand a chance as a beginner at a competition under USACI rules? From what I read, they will pair me up accordingly with like systems and relevant wattage. Any information you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I am trying to save my rear seat and truck bed so doing the best with what I have. I am building my box where I can later swap out my three 12's for three 13.5's and will replace the amps accordingly when that time comes.

Being your first time out, I would say GO FOR IT!!
It would be a lesson on what to look for in a system, and what a sanctioned event looks like. And, last but not least have fun.

Not to derail here but do you have pics? I have a 17 f150 and it's that time to start the build.

Here are some pics of my current set-up, which sounds amazing. My new box will be built this weekend and I will be selling these amps, LOC, and box, if you're interested?

Thanks bud! I'm definitely gonna go for it for the learning experience. Things have changed so much since I last got out of it (late 90's) with the builds and equipment. I never would have thought that pancakes could sound this good but they really beat. If you have any suggestions on songs that I should play with my current set-up, I would be greatly appreciative?

You interested in buying this box bubba? It's about 8 months old and in really good condition. Believe it or not, these two pancake 12's are truly impressive. Not sure what route you are exploring for you build but this isn't a bad option. I just want more bass. Am selling the amps and LOC too.
