new system

what do you guys think of my idea for a system in my 07 charger sxt. I'm looking for high volume level and crystal clarity. Sound stage, imaging and that stuff is secondary. Here is what I'm thinking...

Alpine w205 deck
Alpine pxa-h700/701 processor for active set up
4- Cadence CVLW-69 6x9 midbass in the factory locations (these look powerful and handle 150 rms with 70 oz magnets)
4- JBL titanium 1" tweeters
2- JBL 15" GTI subs (ported 4 cubes)
2- RF punch 400-4 bridged for 200x2 each to the cadence 6x9's
1- RF punch 400-4 to the tweeters 50x4
1- RF power t20001bd for the subs 2000 x1 @ 1 ohm (the subs will show a 1.5 ohm paralleled, so amp should deliver between 1500-2000 watts rms)

all 0 awg power and ground, 12 awg speaker wires, optical and ai net connections to processor, and short monster cable (i get them cheap) to amps. Car comes with 160 amp alternator, and I'm thinking of adding a yellow top as well.

Opinions please!!!!

everything sounds good to a bit skeptical about the box
my 12s are in a 4 cube box as well therefore im guessing you might need something a little
bigger for the 15s...but i'll the let the pros guide you on that

4 cubes for 2 15"s is small if is ported. if you can squeeze 5 cubes outta it you'll be a bit better

sorry guys 5 cubes (separate chambers + 5pounds of polyfill and 1" mdf ), for some reason i was thinking 2-12's, but i definitely want 15's. Anyone actually heard those cadence 6x9's. They look heavy duty, but it's the only part of the system I'm a little worried about, since I'm not sure about their sound. Freq response looks good enough to use as a mid (40-8khz). I'm guessing as an initial set up i'll cross them at 60 hz (they look like they can handle the bass) and 5khz. The tweets will take over there, and the subs will do the honours below 60hz. I really want it loud and clear over the entire range, not just bass. I figured with the 6x9's in a component set up that it would give me the volume i want.

actually the only components I'm not 100% sure about are the Cadence midbass. Everything else I've used or dealt with the brand for years, so I'm very comfortable with them. Anyone know of another 6x9 component that I might look into?

^^sorry i don't have access to MSN right now. This is my work computer and we can't download MSN, and my home computer is out of order right now, and for last 3 months...piece of crap..don't get me started. Honestly the system is ready to go, except for the Cadence 6x9's. If you have any other suggestions, i'll check them out and decide. thanks for the offer guys are very helpful.
