my plan is a sq system. and with a tight budget, and little room in a vert. this is my plan

these for the fronts
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...+S45.html#tabs

these for the rear
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...+S55.html#tabs

and for my sub this in a sealed corner box i would go 12in but there is no room with out sacrificing trunk space

or
http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...ch+P1S410.html
but i havent heard good things about reliability with the p1'*

i am still undecided on a head unit i may just buy my freinds pioneer

im pretty much going to buy an item a paycheck till i have it all then i have a freind that is doing the install

was out mocking up a box for the sub in my car the only place i can put the box is in the corner. well with that the only corner it can go in is the pass side due to the fuel filler on the drivers side.

well when i started taking my trunk apart i notice the vert has a ton of extra bracing and the location of the hinges dont help i can put a 10 in there but id have to build the box in the car and destroy it if i ever needed to replace the power antenna or tail light. i can only fit a 8 in in with a removable box.

would an 8 get me what im looking for

i want really good sound quality for rock music but enough power that if i turn up the bass on a bit of rap or hip hop i can shake the rearveiw mirror and rattle the trunk what would be a good 8 to do that for me

Jake, if you get even a powerful 8" sub, you'll still need to build a box that'* appropriately sized for it. Can you take a picture so we can see how much space you have?

You'll be limited to around 250W on an 8" sub. It will be decent bass, but it won't be anything too horribly impressive.
