Question couple questions.

aite im new to forums. in general. but its hard to get specific answers to questions from google.

so, i saved up about $2000 in the last six months makin whoppers 40 hours a week and im really tryn to construct a system thats gunna have some heavy bass with decent quality (i listen to rap) and loud but very good quality components (i will be running a set of 6.5s in the front and 2, maybe 4 tweeters on my ab pannels). im trying to do it ona $1500 budget. so so far..

$380 for a dam 190 amp alt for my 2001 hyundai elantra ( gotta love havin an import car wen it comes to paying for ho alternators )
$170 for the alpine cde 123 ( chose this because its a alpine and ive heard 4V preouts are a +)
$470 for the rockford fosgate t1500BD ( hear the bd is about 85% efficient at 2 ohms and it puts out about 1150 rms on most birthsheets )
$400 for the sundown sa 12s ( kinda sketchy about the aq sdc2.5 12s and ive been hearing alot of positive about the sundowns)
$100 for the box for the subs

wow. this already puts me at $1560. ill scratch the cde hu and get someone to buy it for me for my bday. so that puts me at $1390.

so i gues what im askin for is opinions on goood quality components and tweeters and a nice amp (with low thd or doesnt distort to where it will affect the life span of my components) that wont run me much over $400.

im also open to suggestions on anything else that i have listed that are just as good in quality that will save me money.

i dont know how many people are actually gunna view this but it would help me a lotttt if someone culd give me advice. thanks

Where is that alt comming from? May can get cheaper from else where.
The rockford is a great amp but you could find good quality more powerful amps cheaper.
Good choice on the subs
The box may run you higher than the 100 you have unless your building it yourself.
You also need to add in wires, RCA's and batteries. Which could be a good chunk of change.

yeah i was about to put cables and wiring before i posted it haha just got lazy. but honestly i was thinkn that would run me a lil over $100 right?

and yeah the t1500bd is expensivee but im really thinkn that the amps are going to be a lil more important than my speakers so thats y im trying to spend the money there. if u or ne one else has suggestions on amps please let me kno.

and the alt is coming from excessive amperage.com
i think its gunna be hard to find a better price on and alt for a hyundai. they r hard to find and im not sure my stock 80 amp alt can be rewound to at least 180 amps

Theres alot of people here that have been dealing used for a while. Talk to them in detail about the items and just make good judgments. Most people on here arent sketchy.

for a amp look at sundown, audioque, soundstream for the subs, for amp for mids and highs autotek sm4-1000 is nice, look at PA speakers like seleniums for mids and highs (if you want some screamers) check out my signature I just ordered a Soundstream Rubicon 2500D off ebay for $350.00 amazing sounding amp.

Wireing depends, you dont want to skemp on that either, You'll need 1/0 for sure and that usually runs 2-3 bucks a foot for cca you might need around 30 foot of that and rca's arn't much maybe 10 bucks for 2-channels 15 or so for 4 channels, Then you need speaker wire, Terminals for the 1/0 and speaker wire, fuses, fuseholders, it can add up quick.

Also didn't see anything in your budget for a amp to run your mids/highs. What are your plans for that?
As for your mono amp i'd personally suggest something like the bc2000 from crescendo.
I was going to suggest excessive amperage since that was the cheapest place i found as well.
