New vehicle, time for a new stereo!!!

Howdy y'all. I just got a new vehicle, and I need some suggestions on what to do. Now, I kept my head unit (JVC KD-AVX2) from my old truck and my subs are on order already (MTX Thunder 5500 x2). But, I still need suggestions as to the amps for my subs and speakers and what speakers to get. So here's what I need:

pair of 6.5 in. components and 5.25 coaxials speakers
600 watt monoblock amp
4-channel for my speakers

Now, i work at a certain Canadian retailer and get Exile, MTX and Infinity stuff at a pretty decent discount, so those are the brands I'm looking at primarily. It would be a huge help to hear some outside opinions.

It all depends on what you want to spend . . .

Personally, if I had those three companies to choose from, I would go with MTX amps and Infinity speakers

Get a mono block class D for the subs.

You could do a few different things for powering the speakers
1. Get a 4 channel amp for fronts and rears
2. Get three 2 channel amps (two for bi-amping the components and the third for the rears).
3. Get 6 mono amps - one amp per speaker.

How big or crazy do you want to go?
