Sub: Alpine 6012, 6015 and the 6012CX and 6015CX. I've only had actual listening experience with the 6015CX (so far, but I have a 6012 waiting to be tested) and I was very happy with it. Also, the original RF Power series. I had a PWR-124 (the 12") and loved it.

Amps: Alpine 3545, no actual experience 1st-hand with but the most beautiful amp ever made. The Alpine 3539 I also very much like and I have one waiting to be heard. Blades SE series amps cuz I thought they were something different and cool at the time. RF's original Power 300, 650 and 1000 (the 1000 being a favorite) because of the sheer coolness of them. I have a 300 but needs 1 channel fixed.

Those are my 'dreamer' amps for the most part. Amps I love but haven't really had my hands on. The ones I have had lots of experience that I still highly regard are the 'bbq' DSM amps of Rockfords from the mid 90s. I still use them and just love how well they work.

PG's themed-series amps were really cool like the Route 66, Frankampstien, Son of Frank and the Outlaw and Bandit. The Reactor I didn't care too much for.

PPI's art series (both lines) I always liked too.

Speakers: I am very happy with my B&W 7" midbass and have always liked my RF Power 4" mids although I am eager to try the Canton 4 and tweet that I have. I've always liked too the old Alpine (Dynaudio) 6062 and 6022 6.5/tweet although I had only a limited experience with them. The Spliz tweeter that RF had out about 5 years ago was a real unsung hero as well. And RF's Audiophile 6.5s that I used were just an excellent sounding midbass too.

Subs: I have eclipse 88150.4. Its an amazing sub. According to me it has a best combination of sound and base.(there are some other ood subs as well).

Amps: i would say, PPI( PCX 480) is one of the best amp to power your speakers(set of cmponents).

Speakers: After listening to many brands, i like CDTs, they've got decent sound.

ss10r's, the velvet hammer, one my all time faves as well
best amps ive ever used, too close to call between my old zapcos, z150s2 and so one and my new avi amps

best speakers ive ver used, for tweeter, the morel mdt33(but i did just get the f#1 components so it might change)

best midrange, close call between the eton 4" and the avi frm160 6.5"

best midbass specific speaker, the davis accostics 6.5"

best woofer, easy the avi sls300 is the best woofer ive ever heard, with the ss10r close behind

No it won't...IMO anyway....I wasn't too fond of them, I found them to be very fatiguing.
Like I said, that's IMO.

My favourite speakers? Midrange: Focal 6W....very accurate and responsive, probably one of the most tonnaly Accurate I've ever heard.

Tweets: Focal TN52's or Hi Vi R1L's. I love both tweets, The Hivi's being a Ribbon and the Focal's are a dome, both Tweets are equally impressive.

Midbass: Focal 5Ws, there's one, I can't remember the model number but it was by Silver Flute and the other I would have to say is the Scan Revalator.

Subs: I'm impressed more and more every time I hear a Juggernaut, I also love the Focal Utopia 13 and the IDMAX, another that surprised the hell out of me was the RE HC 15 and my beloved Kicker CompVR 12....it's easily the best sub in it's price range.

Amps....Kicker ZR series, Audison SRX LRX and especially the VRX line. Alpine V-12's from 1999, Rockford Punch 40, Brax Helix.

I guess that pretty much sums up the stuff that really got my attention that I've actually heard in the last 8 years or so, there's more stuff that I liked but too much to list.

I've liked Kicker for quite a while. I've had great results with their subs. I've also been running my Rockford Amp for over 5 years and it is still running like the day I bought it. I'm also quite fond of PPI. Great solid power out of their amps! As far as decks go, I did love Clarion until my 1000.00 dollar deck crapped out on me after only like 2 years.

PG's themed-series amps were really cool like the Route 66, Frankampstien, Son of Frank and the Outlaw and Bandit. Or the MS1000: 3000 watts RMS baby!!!
have you ever heard of Harrison labs? they make a 9600 watt RMS amp, you choose the impedance. Incredible!! As far as favorite components, I have everything that is perfect in my mind. DynAudio, and Vifa (and soon to be audisson & McIntosh)
