Includes crossovers. You don't need 5 speakers.

Yes ALL car audio based "COMPONENT" systems include crossovers. Why do you want 5 speakers??? You don't need that. Watch this video: Ghetto Case - YouTube

A crossover for 5 speakers is going to cost you upwards of at least $50. And you are going to need one amp for your stereo main channels and another monoblock amp for your infamous "5th speaker" which I suspect is a 10 inch woofer. Your system is highly inefficient.

Is it a Dual Voice Coil woofer ? Sorry man. A crossover for a 5 speaker system is not easy or cheap and if it is not a dual voice coil subwoofer it gets even tougher. Once you add mids you need a passband crossover and then the rabbit hole goes deep.

If you're going with the suitcase build I strongly suggest dropping the extra woofer and just use the component set suggested. You will not get any real bass out of the build anyways so it's just a waste of money.
