Default Full Active DIY vs DLS Iridium setups

I've been reading a lil bit into DIY setup and decide to go DIY for the best bang for the bucks and getting great SQ like that of the DLS IR setups. Here's what I can come up with.

Setup (what I have now and what I plan to get):

The reason I'm getting the PDX amp are because: sizes, sleek look, power, and quality all together. I can't get similar quality with any other amps sin similar sizes. There aren't a lot of space in my G35C trunk that I'm going with, and this will be all show and go setup (quick disconnects for track events, etc.)

Headunit: Alpine IVA-W505 (coming out)
EQ Controller: Alpine RUX-C701 Controller - Bought
DSP Processor: Alpine PXA-H701 DSP - Bought
Sub Amp: Alpine PDX-1.1000 - About to order
Speakers Amp: Alpine PDX-4.150 Front - Active - About to order
Speakers Amp: Alpine PDX-4.100 Center (Active) and Trunk stage Amp (Passive) - About to order
Speakers Amp: Alpine PDX-4.100 Rear Active - About to order
Trunk Speakers: eD[i] 6500- when open up trunk with monitor at shows - Bought
Sub - MBQ PWE-352 Subwoofer - Bought


Full EQ Active Front stage and Active Center & Rear stages (using amps)

So after couple readings and suggestions from couple friends, here's the setup I came up with for my budget:

Please advise:

5CH Tweets: 5 x Seas Neo Alum - 27TAFNC/G
Front Woofers:2 x Seas W16NX 6.5"
Center Woofer: Morel MW114S 4"
Rear Woofers: 2 x Morel MW168 6"

How does this setup sound to you as far as SQ?

Also, I know that the PXA-H701 can do full crossovers for the front.

Thanks again for the suggestions.

So after trolling around and bothered bunch of people, they've helped me revised the setup to:

Front & Center Stages:
Tweet: Scanspeak D2904/6000-01 or Seas T29MF-001
Mid: Seas W16NX 6.5"

Rear/Surround (closed enclosure):

Tweet: Morel DMS30S or Seas Neo Alu
Mid: Morel MW168

So how do you think these'd match up in term of SQ? Thanks a lot.
