I ended up going with Alpine head unit/processor/dvd changer, Audison for amps, and Focal for speakers. Bottom line, think it out and take your time!

I will give you props for your knowledge when it comes to car stereo; you seem to know your stuff, but I think your definition of " do not rush" when it comes to installation must be way different than mine.
