Smile Best Audio $10k can buy

Everyone,
I have a budged of about $10k, And I am not a bigg audiophile. Can you experts tell/recommend me the best thing that kind of money can buy. I would be against the idea of replacing my Head unit cuz I am planning to use my iPad 3 (Launches on Mar 7th) for playing all kinds of music.

Please recommend me the ALL the parts I need, I plan to install these my selves so even labor is not included for that budget.

I really appreciate your help.

I know much about RF and JL Audio, but has anyone tested both of them out? From what I have read, this is what I understand. RF is over rated and JL Audio is over priced. IS that really true?

I am not a biggg speed crazy kind of guy. But I listen to full spectrum of music. And thats why I want my audio to be "faster" than my car. I hope you understand.

no doubt get a custom setup at some shops

just hit some up that are well known and see what they can do

with 10k you can't even spend that much

What I wouldn't do is walk into a audio shop and tell them you have 10 grand to spend. They will make you spend 10k on a 5k set up.

Start with the Ipad, and a Rockford 3sixty.2, get some custom made kick panels, maybe a trunk lid Monitor, you can do a multiple amplifier setup? That 10g's will be gone in no time!

The JL audio 900/5 is a great amp, if your going for the one amp to run everything install.

I am no electrical engineer, but will the JL sub W7AE be compatible with the HD900/5?
I have read numerous posts on this, but its something to do with the internal resistance of the battery and the wire running to the amp from the battery( Resistance of the battery)

That amplifier wont power that sub. I would do a 2 12w7, and 2 1200/1 sub/amplifier on the low end of things. Only if your goal is to spend the whole 10k. You can upgrade the electrical, multible battery setup.

Also the AE is just the anniversary edition of that sub. you can save a ton of $ and just get a regular 12w7.
