Can you please check to see if the stock headunit has RCAs. If not, prefer the amp with line level inputs.

For fronts - 6.5" component drivers from JBL, Hertz, Morels, DLS
For rears (if required) - 6x9 drivers matched to fronts (listen to pick)
4 ch amp - JBL 1004, kenwood 846.
Wiring - prefer connection audison.
Amp kit - pick a trusted one.
Damping - if required.

Buddy, ICE has endless possibilities. Just an idea, front compos can vary from 4K to 200K. So it would be better if you could share your max upper limit for the ICE, so that we can suggest brands. [thumbsup]

For a decent system, you need to spend some 20k, for a good system, you spend some 35k, for a mind blowing system, there is no limit !
