Exposure to 120 dB + causes immediate and permanent damage. Is there a specific aspect of the current system that you don’t like? Once you define your goals then you can start getting into the specifics of achieving it and selecting gear. After you’ve developed a concept for what gear you want then practical issues can start to be figured out, component location, wiring, etc.
I am a HARD bass fan although I like to hear the mid and high notes while my doors are nearly falling off. I love my music loud, but can't seem to turn it high enough to meet my satisfaction without hearing them clip.
