I don't need any hate or whatever, I just want opinions on whether this is a good setup or not.

So far this is my audio setup in my truck
:

I've got all 4 door panel speakers replaced with Rockford Fosgate P1650 Speakers
In my own opinion, I think they are fantastic speakers for those who don't want to spend too much on audio or for those that just want better sound quality. They have built in crossoversa and tweeters as well.

I personally love bass and will be installing 2 12" JL Audio TW1-2 Subwoofers which will be running off a Pioneer GM-D9601 amp rated at 2400w max or 1200rms into 1 channel, should be enough to power both subs consistently.

I also have a Pioneer 2400nex head unit that supplies 50w per channel, considering each speaker is rated for 55w rms; I should be good.
Again, the clarity and quality of the speakers is great for the price. The head unit itself comes with carplay and it's touchscreen.

Thoughts? Is there anything I should change or add?

I'd replace those JL's.

Their price to performance is not worth it.
You can get much more output in that power range at far less cost than a pair of those subs.

The sub amp is good. It does rated and it's fairly efficient. For the price, its a decent amp.

Pioneer makes solid HU's. Just don't expect much power to your door speakers with it.

IMO Rockfords power series is the only series worth its name.
They make good stuff but you can better coax speakers than that. Especially being a 6.5

Soundqubed has a 6.5 coax that is loads better than those.

The setup isn't bad by any means, but you can do better if you're going to be paying retail or anything close to retail.

Sounds like you're going to be beating the block bro. I only have a factory 10" that came in my truck but it beats pretty good with like a 800w amp

No JL not for the price. I recommend Pure Audio, DC Audio, PSI, Brutal Sounds, Sundown, or Skar subs. If your handy with subs you can buy blown subs of these brands and recone them for half the price its worth.
