Woofersetc.com was a good recommendation.

I'd go...

Eclipse XA5000 bridge channels 1&2 and 3&4. That will give you 150W RMS x 2 and still 300W RMS for the sub channel.

Image Dynamics ID12D2 V.3 - One of these wired in series should fit rather nicely.

CDT Audio CL-61A-25 PRO - For your front components

Just remove the rear speakers, because when you are pushing 150W to the front, you won't hear or need the rear door speakers anyway.

Total shipped price for all three of those items is about $810. Leaving you almost $200 to build an enclosure and/or amp rack and purchase your amp kit. Could even save some while waiting for the new metra kit to come out for the 06 and up mazda6. Then you can buy a better HU and possibily throw in some decent coaxails in the rear for fill.

Just one of a million possibilities, it's kinda late so thats the best I got right now with knowing more about what you want to get out of your system and what kind of music you mainly listen too.

Somebody must like MaxxSonics...

I don't like the sound of the newer MB Quarts since MaxxSonics purchased them a few years ago.

Personally I don't think you can go wrong with CDT and ID. Plus Eclipse's new amplifiers are pretty nice.

Not to mention if you go dual amps, then you gotta spend a little more on the wiring for a distribution block and extra fuses. Just an opinion for keeping under the budget and still getting better than good sound.

I would only bridge speakers if they are subs.. wouldnt bridge front stage speakers cuz that will double your THD.[/b]
People bridge front stage all the time. It's not a noticable change in terms of sound quality.

If you read his first post. He doesn't want anything bassy. Thats why I recommended the ID sub. It's much clearer than any alpine and if he puts it in a sealed enclosure, he should get nice clear smooth bass.

Ported is never gonna sound as clear as sealed. It's just not possible. You get louder boomer "boom boom" bass from a ported enclosure. I've been to quite a few SPL and SQ competitions and built some boxes for a couple competitors. Sealed is always used in SQ comps and like wise, almost never used in SPL. I'm sure he'll be more than satisfied with the ID sub. If you could/want to spend $30 over your 1000 limit. I'd go with a JL 12W6V2. Thats probably one of the best SQ subs I've ever heard. And you could wire that down to 2 ohm and push 450W to it with that same eclipse 5 channel amp.
