Looking for some good ideas

Hey everyone, I am a car audio fanatic. I have installed for a living in the pastand absolutely loved it for the few years I did it but gave it up to make more money at another job. Even though I don't do it now I still love doing and redoing all my vehicle sound systems. I recently have purchased 2 new vehicles, a 2014 Honda Odyssey resdvd and a 2014 Nissan Titan vs crew cab. I of course will be doing some tweaking if you will of both vehicle. For the odyssey I am planning to keep the factory radio for now wich has Honda link, and even though it's not perfect I'm going to try live with it for the time being and just run a good sound processor to the amp(s). I have already done dynamat on the front and passenger sliding doors. I have installed jbl p660 components in the front and jbl 2WAY p660 in the rear doors. I am looking for ideas as to wich amp or amps that I currently have along with a 10 inch sub and possibly some infinity kappa tweeters to go in the back to fill the space. My idea for the van is to do a custom enclosure/amp rack in the back driver side corner where there is the Honda 8 inch sub.

My other project is of course the titan. I will replace all speakers add a sub and amp(s). Replace the head unit. I'm going to get the vehicle and sound proof everything. Pretty straight forward.

My stockpile of car audio includes starting with head units Kenwood ddx470, Kenwood excelon 897. I'm not in love with either deck. But both are capable and can do the job until I can afford to replace them. For amps I have a KENWOOD excelon xr400-4 and xr900.5, infinity kappa 5, alpine mrx-v70. For speakers I have another set of the jbl p660 components as well as infinity perfect 6.1, infinity kappa 60.9cs, infinity reference 6032cf and some kappa 10.9t tweets. For subs I have 1 kappa 12, 1 kappa 10 and 1 jl 10tw3-d4 wich is a shallow mount. So my question to everyone is what hardware should go in wich vehicle? With the stuff I already have how would you it around? I'm really looking for ideas. I drive both vehicles the same amount. I like I'm going for Sq over spl but at the end of the day would like to have both. I am sure not everyone will like what I have for hardware but it is what is is and I'm not really looking for what's better then everything I have haha. That being said I am willing to spend some money to better the overall install and what I don't use will likely sell. Sorry for the long post but I'm hoping to get some really good ideas. Thanks.
