I've got a few changes here:

"Audison" Bit one digital processor $997 (Not necessary...How about JL Audio Cleansweep?)

Focal 100 KRS 4" K2 speakers (Pretty Expensive but good sounding...Polyglass are cheaper and sound almost as good. I have both in my vehicles)
$649 x 2 = $1298

Amp JL Audio HD 600/4 (No...get one JL Audio XD600/6 biamp the front and standard amp rear)
$597 x 2 = $1194

Amp JL Audio HD 750/1 $697 (JL Audio XD 600/1)

JL Audio amp kit $279 (Why on Earth would a quality install shop that is charging $11K for an install not doing higher end wire?) Amp kits?

RCA cables $390 (Those are expensive! Many less exp options out there, but I paid as much too!)

Kinetik KHC 800 800 power cell (Why?)
$187 x 2 = $374

Dynamat bulk pack $167(Why? Is not this car quiet enough? I guess in the trunk?)

JL Audio thin woofer 13TW5V24 (Pretty good pick, I went with one 13w6v2)
$597 x 2 = $1194

Labor $2560 (Wow! Is he working on it for two weeks?)

Can anything be eliminated or substituted for less expensive?
Wasn't looking to drop $11K for this upgrade
Any info would be helpful.
Thank you again.
