Default 2009 ram crew cab system suggestions?

I want to replace my entire stock stereo system in my 2009 ram crewcab. I was thinking a double din nav screen (any suggestions for cheap with 3 pre-amp outputs?) I was also thinking JL audio XR650-CSi's in the front doors, XR570-CXi's in the rear doors, the JL 10w3 with the enclosure for under the rear seat, and an Alpine PDX-5 amp. What do you guys think? Any different suggestions? is there a better place for a sub in the 09 crew cab? I want to do it as cheap as possible with the best results (obviously)

just a suggestion ...2 jl w3's in a box under the seat with a jl 500/1 amp...and then check out focal speakers with a jl a4300 4 channel amp....the subs are about 150 each the amp u could get used for like 250 or new around 4 , focal speakers vary but are insane and then the 4 channel amps run ya like 200 and a box is prob around 150 200

i have two jl w3s with a 500/1 and the a4300/ focal compenet up from and coaxil in the back with the 4 channel sounds amazing!

under the front or rear seats? I am not looking for that much bass. I had a contour SVT with 2 12's in the trunk for years. I am not looking for all that, just a little more than the door speakers can put out. Also I don't want to run more than one amp. My friend also has a jl w3 in the enclosure that he will sell me for $100. I can't find anything on focal a4300's.

ok just get one w3 for under the back seat, and focal is the speakers, jl makes the a4300, but i mean if ur going to do new speakers and a sub u should put and amp to each one or get a 5 channel amp

i am planning on opening up my own shop in the next year for car audio and visual so i work with this stuff alot i mean there is so many options man ...but somthing good and cheap usually don't work out well haha...but i mean some options ...single w3 and focal speakers...i would reccomend like i said an amp for each one or a 5 channel but however if u choose not to you can get a 250/1 amp for the w3 that would be pretty cheap also check out jl's 15tw5 its a shallow mount sub...that sounds super good or you could aslo get a sub put where your center console is they make those

the alpine PDX-5 is a 5 channel. Its 75 x 4 and 300 x 1. Think that is enough? what focal speakers do you have?
