Hey For the Kicker CVT65 you can use the Kenwood 350 watts 2 channel amp. ITs around AED 200 and will serve the purpose.
You mean the Kenwood KAC-5204?
So this is what I've understood that I'd need:

- Kicker DS460 pair
- Kicker DS5250 pair
- Kicker CVT 6.5
- Kenwood KDC-138
- Kenwood KAC-5204

Price quote!

You need a power wire kit. Then you need speaker wires to by pass the existing amp and connecting the speakers to your hu directly.

This one is less expensive and specially imported by us.
It will be great if you plan to add another amp in the future.
Just a little bit work for the installer. As he will have to trim some copper strands of the cable to install this on the amp. But I can guarantee quality.

If you want all kicker setup on Sub and wires then go for this kit. Its a bit more than our kit but its got the legendary kicker quality and it will be twice easier to install than the kit above.

And If you are buying the Kicker kit I will add in 20 feet of speaker wire, more than enough to by pass the amplifer on the car.

I can only provide the wire kit and sub.
Unfortunately I am not able to provide the speakers as the DS 5250 will be brought in only during the next order.

It will be better if you visit some place like LULU hypermarket which can give you excellent price.

I hope you're not going for coaxial speakers.

They sound like crap, at least the Kenwood ones do. Don't know about Kicker, hence the reason I switched to components.

Well I would say, ask someone about kicker coaxials at our neoglow forum.. We just finished setting up a customers car and he is very happy about the 3.5 inch coaxials used in the back doors.
Ozi you are right about the kenwood ones. But pioneer rocks. And remember, you get what you pay for. TNT just make sure you get speakers that are over 150 AED. Pioneer or JBL... These are available at LULU and i said lulu because i use that price for comparison and i know the suppliers for lulu. They provide better prices than the distributor itself.

I think I'll stick to Kicker. Neo if you can source 5250s for me, why not the 460s?

You can ask me the same question for the 2 ohm Kicker CVT65.
The regional distributor for middle east doesnt get these items.

Hmmm, what if I try to source all of these from U.S. It might turn out to be cost effective with more items clubbed in.

Interested??

CVT 6.5
Kicker DS460
Kicker DS5250

The total would be around AED 1200.
I know thats not a good price. Sorry!
For the AMPS you could always look at the Swiss audio line. There are some good amps that will be value for money.

Actually the shipping is costing the same price of the products. I was quoted the KS5250 though.
Give it some more time I might be ordering few items from US and will see what can be done.
