I'm thinking about getting a pretty solid JL Audio system. Planning to get:

1 Mustang Stealthbox: Ford Mustang Coupe '10-Up - JL Audio

1 C5-653 3-piece-per-side component speaker setup (for front... will require some custom brackets): C5-653 - Car Audio - Evolution® - C5 - Component Systems - JL Audio

1 C5-570x 1-piece-per-side coaxial speaker setup (for rear): C5-570x - Car Audio - Evolution® - C5 - Coaxial Systems - JL Audio

1 HD750/1 amp (for sub and rears... maybe I'll need the 1200 :\): HD750/1 - Car Audio - Amplifiers - HD - JL Audio

1 HD600/4 amp (for front speakers): HD600/4 - Car Audio - Amplifiers - HD - JL Audio

1 Cleansweep (for flattening stock EQ curve): CL441dsp - Car Audio - OEM Interface - OEM Integration - JL Audio

I'd be pulling out the stock door subs because the Stealthbox should be more than enough bass, and be *better* bass, and also I've heard leaving them in can cause cancellation issues with the Stealthbox. The C5-653 6.5" mid-bass speakers would then go in the place where the door subs used to be.

If anyone sees a problem with this configuration feel free to tell me... I'm not very knowledgeable on car audio.
