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.

I believe the power wire in the Camaro is 2ga, I would do 0ga from the battery to your distribution block, then 4ga to your amps.

I can look after the electrical part, but I am having a tough time deciding on the speakers and the amps

If you have $10k to spend on just equipment...you do not want just 1 - 5 channel amp. I would run 10 to 12 separate channels if I could...

Do lots of research or you're going to waste your money....it doesn't matter how much you spend on equipment. If the install is garbage, it will sound like garbage.

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?

yeah, you're NOT an audiophile and you want to spend $10k on a system.
