So you are correct, there are cheaper amps and drivers but as I mentioned, it is all about the goals for your speakers and how best to meet them.
So for a sub
How loud do you want it to play
How low do you want it to play
How low do you want the distortion to be
How big do you want it to be
How much can you afford
How do you want it to look (furniture grade, truck bed liner)
Figure these out and then start looking at build vs buy. I agree that in many cases DIY is the best option, but depending on your goals/skills it may not always be the best choice.
