What do you think of this set up?

I've just got an '06 Camry XLE with the JBL sound system, 6 disc changer, steering wheel controls, etc. I'm a musician and appreciate a quality sound system. This JBL system ain't it. I all ready have some pieces that I bought quite a while ago for my previous car and never used. A Premier TS-C604 6.5" component set (60W RMS each @ 4 ohms) for the front,a 12" Pioneer TSW-306C sub (400W RMS @4 ohms, and just bought a 6x9 set of Infinity Kappa 692.9i speakers (110w RMS each @ 2ohms) for the rear deck. Here's what I'm thinking of getting.... a Kenwood Exelon KVT-604 video deck (it has 3 line outs at 5V (instead of the KVT-504) with a KNA-G510 nav unit, an Alpine PDX-5 5 channel amp (it's small and I think enough power), a Metra 99-8203 Double din mounting kit for the single din head unit. I would also like to incorporate my steering wheel controls into the head unit. Is that possible? So... the question is....any comments or suggestions? Anything else I should consider? I want clean, clear full range sound. I don't need people for 25 miles around to hear me coming. Any idea where I can get good Canadian pricing? I'm a couple hours from Toronto. Thanks.

PAC makes a steering wheel control adapter for your car.

With the new Camry's and most newer midsize cars the prblem to get great sound is large flat, flimsy plastic door panels. Your setup sounds decent, but I'd suggest getting a much better set of speakers for the front. Some Focals or Morels..etc and invest a good bit of time into sound deadening.

As he has a Toyota, if he heads to a Eclipse head unit he should not need to spend the $ on a steering wheel interface..... money that can be budgeted into a AVN726E....
