save money on the EQ, you dont need it for a system like that.

with the money saved, find some components for the front, since you are going to put money into getting an amp for them.

no need for a 4ch amp like the 800.4 for the subs.

the w6 only comes in dual 6OHM i think. not a very good match for the amp.

i like the pioneer HU, but i dont know lot about the DVD units.

out of the subs, i like the Perfect, but you might want to take a look at the image dynamic's IDQ.

I would definately get components in the front. For the subs, I would go with the Infinity. Also, I'm not a fan of Kenwood amps

dude, did someone recommend you these and trying to get you raped or are these ur own favorites? most of stuffs u list are kenwood which are :rolleyes: why would you want a 4 channel amp for the subs? you can go either a 2 channel for 1 sub or mono amp for 2 subs depending on how much power u are running. JL w6x2 is very good i supposed
anyway to help you decide for the rest, first of all you need to tell us how much you are willing to spend and what type of system you want. SPL or SQ? if you are on a tight budget and you care less about sound quality, then kenwood or Jesen will work for ya. otherwise get some real stuffs like Alpine Hu, some component speakers instead of coax. so give us more info

my opinion
clarion touch screen dvd/mp3/cdr/rw player -1400
crystal comps in the front -130
no rear speakers
Alpine MRV-T320 2 Channel Amplifier - 190
2 12"- 4 ohm DVC infinity perfects - 300
dual sealed box - 40
dei 1100 class d amp -340
all wiring - 50 bucks

all this for 2450, which is alot less than your budget
