Default Alpine Sound Quality ???

I'm looking at the Alpine with three sets of outputs. IIRC THE NUMBER 149BT ??? I think it had 4 x 50 w in the head itself ? I was wondering if anyone had tried that compared to separate amps ? Is it good quality sound ? Will it be equivalent to good amps? I am planning on going with the old school Rockford Fosgate DSM punch amps. I had them back in the early 90's when I use to compete in sound offs. I listen to a lot of different music. Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, Neil Young, some days bluegrass, a lot a classical, hate opera ,sometimes Foulcalt, Isakov and folk/ american. I like lots of power for better sound quality at lower volumes .I am going to go with a Subthumper and 10" shallow Rockford Fosgate single sub in the cubby. I am undecided on the 6.5 speakers as yet. Infinty Reference or Polk Audios, maybe MB Quarts ??? I have a nice set of the OEM tweeter pods with Infinity Reference tweeters 135w max. Your thought on depending on the head's power as apposed to the separate amps. I am planning for at least 2 amps, possibly 3 if the head unit isn't up to par. What speakers do you guys suggest ? I've been out of the loop on the modern equipment. From what I have gathered, the older Fosgates rival or surpass the modern stuff ? Thanks for your opinions !
