I've picked out a few parts for a system I'm planning on buying, and I was wondering if these components work well together. I'm not too sure if I chose the right amp (don't know if it's too strong, not enough, or the right amount of power) for the system. If there's anything that needs to be changed or if you have any recommendations, please leave them here. Thanks in advance.

          o Peak: 50 watts x 4 channels
          o RMS: 18 watts x 4 channels
    * CD Text Display
    * MP3 ID3 Tag Display (Title/Artist/Album)
Alpine SPR-17S
    * Type-R 6-1/2" 2-way Component System
    * Power Handling:
          o Peak: 330 watts
          o RMS: 110 watts
    * Impedance: 4 ohms
    * Hybrid layered-pulp woofer with rubber surround
    * 1" textile ring-dome tweeter
    * External crossovers — 12 dB/octave (high -pass) and 6 dB/octave (low-pass) crossover points
    * Frequency response: 65 Hz - 27 kHz
    * Sensitivity: 87 dB
    * Top-mount depth: 2-5/16"
Rockford Fosgate P3L-S12
    * 12" 4-ohms P3L Series Loaded Subwoofer Enclosure
    * Power Handling:
          o Peak: 800 watts
          o RMS: 400 watts
    * Impedance: 4 ohms
    * Kevlar fiber reinforced semi-pressed paper cone woofer with ABS/Acrylic dustcap
    * Poly-ether-ester rubber surround
    * Rigid die-cast aluminum low profile basket
    * Protective PVC textured magnet cover
    * Reversible diamond cut cast aluminum trim ring
    * Vented spider cavity
    * Custom 10-gauge nickel plated push terminals
    * Extended pole piece and bumped backplate
    * 2.5" 4-Layer high temperature 2-ohm dual voice coil with spun-laced Nomex re-inforcement collar (wired as 4-ohms in the loaded enclosure)
    * Frequency response: 43-250 Hz
    * Sensitivity: 86 dB
Rockford Fosgate Punch P400-4   
    * Punch Series 4-Channel Class AB Car Amplifier
    * RMS Power Rating:
          o 4 ohms: 50 watts x 4 chan.
          o 2 ohms: 110 watts x 4 chan.
          o Bridged, 4 ohms: 200 watts x 2 chan.
    * MOSFET power supply
    * Remote bass level input (remote level control sold separately)
    * LED power, thermal, and protect indicators
    * Tuned Bass EQ (0-18 dB bass boost at 45 Hz or 0-12 dB bass boost at 12 kHz depending on crossover selection)
    * On-board differential inputs eliminates noise picked up by the signal cable
    * 4/2 channel operation
    * Integrated Trans•ana technology simplifies the signal path of the amplifier allowing the signal to travel through the amplifier at a lower voltage. The result is greater reliability and exceptional sound quality.
    * RCA Pass-thru outputs
    * Featured custom designed TO-247 MOSFETs have 60% more metal tab area providing more power handling capacity, lower impedance and improved heat dissipation over traditional TO-220 MOSFETs found in most competitor's amps.
    * Built in NOMAD is a "real time" analog computer that protects your amplifier from shorting speaker wires and dangerously low speaker impedances.
    * Cast aluminum heatsink evenly distributes excess heat across entire amplifier heatsink
    * Nickel-plated RCA level inputs
    * Nickel-plated screw terminals
    * Variable high-pass filter (50-500 Hz, 12 dB/octave)
    * Variable low-pass filter (50-500 Hz, 12 dB/octave)
    * CEA-2006 compliant amplifier
    * Frequency response: 20-20000 Hz
    * Dimensions: 13.02"L x 7.625"W x 2.25"H
    * 4-gauge power and ground leads recommended.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I personally wouldn't wouldn't buy anything on that list but the head unit. Rockford Fosgate is extremely poor quality and the Alpine component speakers sound very harsh to me. Your best bet on the speakers would be to go out and demo some at your local car audio shop and see what you like. Some brands to look at if your planning on going the more affordable route would be Eclipse or something similar although i don't really like Eclipse component speakers either but there new amps are nice so are there sub woofers although i haven't heard there newest models. Your always better off saving your money and buying or two things at a time and buying higher quality such as Zapco, Morel, JL Audio and others.

In answer to your actual QUESTION, though... Yes, they would all be compatible with one another and will work well together.
As far as overall RESULTS? Probably sound like @$$. The Alpine head is a nice piece. Nothing from RF is worth a damn, sound-quality-wise, ESPECIALLY the amplifiers. GAH! And for only a LITTLE more money, the JL comps will smack the Alpines down.
What's your budget? Let us know how much you have to work with, and maybe we can make a few suggestions.
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

Sorry, you can NOT post a reply.
