    Question Help me with a good setup (budget ~$850)

    I am trying to decide on what to buy for my audio systems. It's going into my 1999 Camry LE.
    I am going to spend the next 7 days or so trying to decide what to purchase. Feel free to throw me any setup plans or ideas of replacing what I have listed. Rather than having only the opionions of eDesign forum users, I'd figured it wouldn't hurt to hear other's opions on this wonderful forum .
    My budget is hopefully no more than $900. This will be my first car audio system. Also, I still have to find a place that will install all of my parts for no more than 100$.



    ---------------------------------
    My first setup thoughts:
    (1) 13Kv.2 Subwoofer - $75.00 - http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...roducts_id=337
    (2) NINe.2 Amplifier - $215.00 - http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...products_id=45
    (1) eD Single 13Kv.2 - $150.00 - http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...roducts_id=120
    (1) eD 6000s v.2 - $95.00 - http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...roducts_id=349

    (1) 4 Gauge Dual Amp Kit - $100 - http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...roducts_id=243


    Products Sub-Total: $850.00
    Shipping cost: $84.04

    Total cost from eD: $934

    Note: This is if I purchase all eDesign products. I havn't listed thoughts on buying a dash in this first setup idea.

    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Second setup ideas
    *Replacing eDesign amps with Profile amps*

    In this setup, I will still get all the eDesign stuff above except I will replace the amps with Profile amps.

    The rep recommended:

    Profile HA700M - $99 - http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/P...sp?i=489HA700M
    Profile AP400 - $79.99
    http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/P...asp?i=489AP400

    Greg: "I checked out that sub and the speakers and the two Profile amps would be almost perfect actually. IF you go with the dual 4 ohm version of the sub, then we have a mono amp that will put out 350 RMS at 2 ohms. That would be more than enough power."

    So IF I purchase these from them, it would be this:

    Merchandise Subtotal:$179.98
    Special Offers: -$20.00
    Order Total: $159.98 (on just profile amps)

    Assuming if I purchase the eD stuff in first setup except their AMP, it would be $500 including shipping of eD items + $159.98
    Equals: $700.00 total

    ---------------------------------

    Third setup ideas

    Another cheaper solution by notacop:

    (1) eD nine.4 $235 - http://www.icixsound.com/vb/autolink...ead&forumid=24
    (1) eD 6000v.2 off front of nine.4 $95 - http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...roducts_id=349
    (1) eD 11kv.2 off rear channels of nine.4 $65 - http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...products_id=30
    (1) eD ported box for 11kv.2 $110 - http://www.icixsound.com/vb/autolink...ead&forumid=24
    (1) 4 Gauge Dual Amp Kit - $100 - http://www.edesignaudio.com/edv2/pro...roducts_id=243

    Product Total: $605
    Asssuming shipping cost: $80.00
    Sub-Total: $685.00




    ------- ++DASH SOLUTION++ --------

    Kenwood KDC-MP5032 $130.00 - http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/P...sp?i=113MP5032

    Kenwood CA-C2AX Auxiliary Input Adapter - $20 - http://www.crutchfield.com/cgi-bin/P...sp?i=113CAC2AX
    *This adapter plugs into the rear of the Kenwood and then you route the minijack cable to where you want your iPod located.*

    Merchandise Subtotal: $149.98
    Special Offers: -$20.00
    Total: $130.00

    *note: I am using the $20.00 off $100 purchase coupon. And items over 129$ is free shipping *

    --------------------------------
    Ok. Now I help deciding what to do!

    are you willing ot buy used? i'd say option 1 then 2. if you're willing to buy used i'd suggest some other amps besides the ed's. i'm not a big fan of profile but i have no solid ground to base that opinion on...
