Gear help

Hey guys, I am new to car audio. I have been an audiophile for a long time and have a very nice home system. I just want great sound clarity and dynamic punch in the car. I am absolutely not looking for door rattling bass. I had decided on the newer focal K2 6.5” 2 way system with some cheaper focal 6.5’s in the back seat. The salesman suggested the audiomobile 10” and a small sealed box as I wanted to be able to pull the sub out of the car when I needed to for storage. He also suggested an arc 850.5 amp. i purchased this setup but haven’t taken the install yet and do not know anything about the amp or the subs. i am wondering if there would be a better sub for tight accurate bass? I am also contemplating going up to the $2000 2 way focal utopias but he doesn’t demo those so I don’t know how much improvement there would be. If you guys say arc is nice and I should move up I was also thinking the arc 1200.6 instead of the 850. Anyways what’s everyone’s thoughts? Oh and getting a Sony deck, $400 retail but I don’t remember the model number

also at what point do I need to upgrade the cars electrical? It’s a 2007 mitsubishi outlander
