Well, you have a lot of goals, and seem like you know what you want. I hope you are willing to invest in any foreseen equipment as well. Such as security, brakes, suspension, mpg, etc. Best way to chose what enclosure and power is to find out how much space you have. So lets start off with you providing max demensions.

I'm not experienced in box enclosure, but I'm sure one can schime in on some of the options you will have available. Which shouldn't be limited to say the least.

A few equipment I would recommend.

Alt - Ohio Gen/Singer

Batt - XS

Wire - Wire And Supply.com (welding cable)

Subs - (F.i or SSA)

Amps - Crescendo

Mids/highs - Madisound.com (I like the Seas)

Mids/highs amp - ZED Audio

Enclousre - I guess a lot of youtubers are having luck with BassHeadEnclousre?

Head Unit - Eclipse

And I think thats all comes to mind at the moment. I wish you the best of luck, and look forward to the build log. BIG TIP, lol, don't rush anything. These kind of installs can take up to 6-8 months to complete. A lot of work ahead, thats for sure.

      Question about the use of amps crossovers and sound processors. Is it best to go all active not at all or combine?? Are amp filters as good as sound processors? 
      When you buy a component speaker system you are paying for a crossover too. More expensive units have better crossovers. It’s been suggested that these crossovers use up power so not using them and using HPF and LPF on your amps is the better way to go. An alternative method is using a digital active crossover that can be programmed. 
      Different methods are also to influence phase shifts that can create cancellation  or have better frequency curves. 
      The cons would be a dedicated amp just for tweeters and one for mids and one for subs so instead of a 4 channel amp driving 4 pairs it would drive the mids on two channels and two channels for the tweeters then not using the expensive crossover that came with the speakers. 
      I’m running everything thru an Audio Control DQX with sub filter crossover point and EQ that is separating the signal at 90hz which I can adjust. Then thru a programmable crossovers The component and coax speakers are all actively crossed between subs and mids but I am using factory crossovers still. I’m assuming they are only helping tweeters but guessing they may have a filter for the mid too? 
      Do you think I am negating phase advantage by leaving factory filters in? Is the phase pollution not disruptive in high frequency so phasing mids and Subs is sufficient?
       I’m bi amping a pair of JBL competition speakers that has a jumper to remove in the crossover when doing this I am also using amp HPF and running other tweeters off all 4 channels. The JBL owner manual goes into great details about phase shifts and axis to explain what this crossover is doing to help  
      is there a better way to measure it sounds going to me but who knows?

      Good evening everybody. I have a few items to install for an Audio System upgrade; but don't know how to go about it. The Items that will be involved are -1 Distribution Block -2 Amps. -1 Capacitor. -1 Equalizer/Crossover -6 Speakers in Total (2 tweeters, 2 Front Door 6.5's, and 2 6x9's) -1 Subwoofer

      I'm trying to connect 2 amps; 1 for the Subwoofer and the Second for Speakers. My Aftermarket Head Unit has 3 pairs of RCA plug-ins.
      1) Subwoofer 2) Front 3) Rear.

      How Would I connect the 6 speakers (which I'm going to rewire) to the 1st amp? Do I wire the Speakers to the Amp or Straight to the Head unit itself? Also, how would I connect the amp to the Head unit if it only has the 3 RCA plug-ins as stated above?

      Any advice or suggestions are Welcomed. Thanks in advance.
