    Well.... if all the specs are correct it sounds ok. However I have never heard of any of those brands except Orion. That doesn't mean they're no good, just saying I haven't heard of them. Also, I would suggest for your first post that you introduce yourself as opposed to your system.

    Anyway, hope your system sounds great.

    It looks good.

    Sub - real good deal on that sub, should be plenty loud.
    Amps - Hifonics is having the year of their life. A few years ago their stuff was overrated, but they're fixing that problem. Maxxonics in general is really taking off (and they just bought MB Quart!)
    Component - Haven't seen their comp sets, but I know their subs and amps work very well.

    But I would not even use the 6x9's, I took out mine because with my pioneer deck i was only running them up to 125hz. Your orions should play the full range plenty fine.

    For competition? Its up to you. What kind of competing do you want to do?

    For SQ and Install, its up to you. If you want to win, you have to spend the most amount of time or money on it.

    For SPL, it depends on the event. MECA, SLAP, dBDRAG all have different ways of placing you in a class. Of course, for everything, you should become familiar with the rules. But you should do fine for your first outing(considering your experience and your box will be street tuned).
