MB Quart do some pretty nice splits, but i wouldn't go as far as recommending them for the subs. Fair enough if you want to stick all to the same brand, but the problem with that, is some brands do good subs, others do good amps, other for speakers ect.. My setup consists of 6 different brands. For the money, There are better subs on the market.
As for the wiring, that will also come down a lot as to what type of head unit you have, and the amount of pre-outs available. As far as bang for your buck goes with amplifiers, i'd personally have to reccomend Jaycar amps. Something to note though, when matching the power output of the Jaycar amps to your components, Jaycar measure the amps Continous and peak power outputs at 14.4V. You'll need a 4channel to run your 216 6.5's, and at least one Mono Block amp for the subs, although depending on your budget, i've always preffered to individually amplify each sub. If your going to run 3 amps, it would be very worthwhile installing a capacitor. ( This stores power, much like your car battery,and help's ensure that their is sufficient power being given to the amps without straining your battery) Wiring and instalation can make or break a set up, so with regards to what wiring you'll need, this can really only be determined once all of your other components have been purchased.
