    Trying to decide....

    Infinity Kappa 60.11CS 6-3/4" component speaker system In front
    Infinity Kappa 62.11I 150W 6.5-Inch 2-Way Kappa Series Coaxial Speakers In rear

    OR


    JL Audio C2-650 450W 6.5" 2-Way Evolution C2 Series Component Car Speakers System + JL Audio C2-650x 450W 6.5" 2-Way Evolution C2 Series Coaxial Car Speakers - Bundle Speaker Package

    The JL's are about $100 more.... Worth it? Powering with

    Kenwood - KAC 600W Class D Bridgeable Multichannel MOSFET Amplifier with Variable Crossovers

    Thoughts?

    A little of this and a little of that.
    If you’ve got the budget go with JL Audio. That’s my vote.

    Let me add to this.... I got my truck with this head unit: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Car/AppRadio/AppRadio+4+(SPH-DA120)?tab=firmware#downloads

    I built a custom 10" box for https://www.crutchfield.com/S-3CTKxxgyRHB/p_500SWR1042/Alpine-SWR-1042D.html
    It's being powered by https://www.crutchfield.com/p_613KAC9106/Kenwood-KAC-9106D.html?tp=115&omnews=12684981
    Really wishing that amp had a bass control knob. Can one be added somehow?

    I listen to all sorts of music, most of which is live recordings.... Deadhead here! But the sub with that amp without a knob is driving me crazy. The head unit has all sorts of adjustments/internal crossover settings. I ordered a auto EQ microphone to assist with tweaking the sound, but due to the wide variety of sources for the audio I listen to, I am thinking I may need to punt on that amp for the sub in favor of one that has a knob for instant adjustabliity....

    I already got a set of RF for the doors, I am sending them back..... Not happy with them.

    +1 for the jl's

    dont buy the bundle, if you buy the c2-650's and the c2-650x's separate its cheaper

    Jx1000/1D for sub
    JX400/4D for doors

    No processor, don't need with that head unit

    Should have all but rear doors by Wednesday. Gotta love Amazon. Like Crutchfield, but they are expensive. Find what you want there, buy on Amazon.

    Debating a capacitor, but don't think I need it's. More into quality than volume

    You'll have to let me know what you think about those amps. I was seriously considering it, bang for the buck its hard to pass up the JX amp's. I ended up going with the hd900/5

    Your probably better off getting an better battery instead of a cap. Maybe @GNTundra can chime in on power draw.

    What subs are you running?
