Default Can't stop wanting more power after only doing this for 2 months

I just got into car audio a little over 2 months ago, one day I randomly decided to just go off and buy 2 15" kicker cvr's and thought I would be set, with a good amp I was in for a good system. but man I did not know what I would be getting myself into. Since then I haven't stopped upgrading my 2015 Chevy Malibu 2.5 let. Also knowing I had not once messed with car audio, i knew this was gonna be tough but I could do this. So I then thought what am I gonna need to be heard from far away but also felt from far distances. So I decided to upgrade all my doors first and add on 2 6x9 in my rear dash that were empty and covered. I bought 4 rockford punch Pro pps4-6 6.5 (2 rockford p1694 6x9) in the rear dash but I switching them with- 2 8" pps punch pros. I first started buying and reselling to get better equipment ,I bought many different Rockford subs and amps. But then i finally ended up with 2 12" p3s new, a new Rockford enclosure. Then i said I would need to stop alot of rattling from the drastic improvements I made how could I do that? So i sound proofed the trunk door and interior of trunk with 3 different brands of sound deadner.
1.-dynamat
2-fatmat
3-noico 80ml
Out of those three...fatmat was the best to work with. In my personal opinion dynamat was the worst out of the 3. Then as usual I'm satisfied with the install gear 14 gauge speaker wire I bought, I ordered 3 boxes of 20 ft kicker 12 ofc speaker wire, I then replaced everything again. Still not satisfied again I wanted better. This past Saturday morning I had in my trunk 2-p3s and a 1200 watt Rockford prime amp. A Rockford 600x5 amp for my mids and a JL 700-5 for my tweeters. I came across a set of Rockford T1 tweeters for 75$ so I got them and a set of Pioneers, I don't remember the model but they were installed a few weeks ago when i finished wiring up everything but got tired of trying to figure out how to run a signal wire behind my factory Chevy my link radio I basically was scared to either cut the wrong wired or mess something up . So decided on paying a shop here in Philly to run a signal wire, even though I thought i had ran one. Cruthcfield told me over the phone to run a wire from my rear door speaker to my trunk, that would give me a signal to power up everything else. Then I learn from another cruthcfield tech that I was given wrong info and all i would of gotten was a mono signal by doing that. So back to 3 days ago. Saturday morning I was once again looking g online to buy more equipment, I came across someone selling a rockfordT2 13 inch sub for 500 on offer up. I said to myself it was worth a long shot to just try, so I offered the seller my brand new subs , and box and 1200 amp for his t2. He agreed I couldn't believe it. After getting it I thought to.myseld how can I power this beast of a sub properly?? Then the next day I find a rockford t2500 for sale on offer up and I ask the guy if he would take trade and cash and I offered the guy a (audiocontrol eqx and LC8i and a brand new Dremel4300) plus cash for the rockford t2500. He accepted my offer!!!! so I drove 1.5 hrs away from Phila to Elizabethtown New Jersey to pick up the amp. He said he didn't want the lc8i when I got there that he changed his mind, so just Dremel and eqx and 300 cash and the t2500 was mine so. I took him up on it and now I'm now a proud owner of a rockford t2 and rockford t2500. So now I'm gonna go over the plans for the right box for the t2 with a guy I met online, he wanted to buy so.ething from me car audio related. But talking to him for over an hour I find out that he's a big audiophile and has been installing setups for over 20 years so I asked him to help me out and he said he would do it free of charge because it was his passion. He ended up properly connecting my set up neatly and correct. So I need some opinions if I should place that rockford t2 in either a Birchwood enclosure or a plexiglass box. My Installer has a custom box made out of 1.25 inch plexiglass in his f150 to house a Sundown Audio zvx 18 I believe it is in his box. it looks so amazing that I am leaning towards doing that. So for my next move...
1-I want to replace my older rockford 600x5 amp with either a t600-4 or Rockford punch 1000x5 amp or a JL 800/8 Amp that I actually am in possession of after buying it online. I have been debating if I want to sell the JL 800 v2 or use it.
2- I need to beef up my alternator and do the big
4 upgrade.
3- then connect my xs power 3400 that I got in a trade for a extra eqx I had laying around because I got a second one as a gift from the wife but she didn't know I already got one me being so impatient,
4-I want to replace my 0 gauge main power line with 0 gauge welding wire.
I hope I made this pretty easy to understand and didn't confuse anyone, but if anyone has any suggestions please let me know I am the type that realizes I'm new all I can do is learn and so I keep my mouth shut and rather learn more than act like I know everything.

I just recently started researching on a dsp. From what I've read and seen , I was leaning towards a 3sixty.3 but my boys have been telling me I'm better off with a audison bit one. So if I could get some opinions on that issue I would greatly appreciate it......If your asking how is it I've been able to do so much and know so much already for claiming to be into this for just 2 months because all I do now is research and watch videos on YouTube 75% of my day to keep learning more and more. I'm pretty persistent when I want to do something. I keep going and going. so Thanks everyone who reads this and thanks in advance for any help I get.

Your continuing quest for more power likely isn?t over. I run a Rockford T2 13? and was never really happy with the output I was getting from such a beefy driver with a T2500-1bdcp. I recently changed to a Taramps HD8000 and the T2 takes it like a champ.

A very long read, but we understand. We have all been there. The upgrade itch is always nagging us.
