good luck.
As much as I agree on the how nice focal hertz and phoenix stuff has gotten, I am still of the mindset that Alpine has the longevity to stay clear longer and get out of it what he is trying to do over the longrun without swapping speakers every couple of years if he decides to put an amp on them.

the list looks ok with the install being the most important part . I would try Velcro on the tweeters and move them to different locations to find where they shine. Be sure to install some sound deadening in the doors behind the speaker the more the better. Also do not make the ground longer than 3'.

ive had the same focal polyglass' v2s since 2006. granted they arent run off an amp from the bargain bin. you get what you pay for. ive used them for years.

i have a polyglass sub ive been running since 2008 and beat the crap out of it. but its run off a zapco dc 750.2 and it still sounds amazing. it depends on how good the equipment is that will determine longevity, and i know how to tune and know the limits of my equipment.

i understand being brand loyal, i am extremely loyal to zapco amplifiers. there are other factors to consider when "setting up a system"

but to each his own.

Very true, set up is everything, I am brand biased, but I also got that champagne taste with beer money problem as well!

To the OP just be smart setting it up don't max everything out and it should last.
