"Finished" at last

I've owned my current car (95 Cavalier) for about 2 years now, it already came with a deck, but no system. before i had even bought this car I had already started accumulating equipment from forums/pawn shops. I started out with a Coustic 600se amplifier with 2 12" Infinity subs, Infinity 605CS components (not installed)

Then I sold my Infinitys and picked up 2 JL 10w0, used the same amp as above. Then I found a couple zapco amps and a soundstream usa-180 along the way.. I also got a 15" Beyond Audio X-One from a member of this forum for a very reasonable price. Now my problem..

I've been very much in debt during these purchases, so I couldn't afford to have a professional install done until I got promoted (pay raise) and a sizeable vacation pay cheque.

Yeehaw! I went out to a local shop I had been to a couple times prior asking questions, getting amps tested etc and spoke with them about finally "completing" my stereo (for now) I booked in for saturday(this morning). I'm sure you've all felt the same feelings when you had your first stereo put in, so here we go;

Kenwood KDC-722
Infinity 605CS Components
Zapco AG350
15" Beyond Audio X-One
Hifonics Atlantis

Some of you may have read various posts I made during this journey, I thank you for all the advice recieved, my next plans are adding my RF Omnifi unit and having a proper box(ported) made for the BA, right now its in a prefab 15" wedge style box.

Sorry for the long post (if your still reading)

P.S. the install is fairly basic, but i'm happy atm. I ran into a huge problem in the beginning when I couldn't find my 4x6 to 6 1/2" adapters, my dad "moved" them somewhere in the garage.. I had to go to another car audio shop to buy adapters.. turns out when they took the door panel, the previous owner made ones out of MDF, so I didn't need them after all.

Car Audio Haven in Brampton did the install, I had the car back at the time of posting. It sounds great, but it makes me want to change more things. the tweets sound abit harsh, it might be their mounting location. right now, the amps are just installed on the back of the rear seat (it flips down) but it definately goes louder now without sounding like garbage.

Hopefully somewhere along the lines, someone can help me out with plans for a new box and i might transer the amps onto an amp rack in the future.

pics will be atleast a week as my girlfriend owns the digital camera and is at school.
