    In all honesty, if I was shopping for a amp or amps today, I would be looking at Hifonics and Pheonix Gold. Both offer great quality at decent prices.

    Size of the car doesn't matter. It's all about matching your speakers and amp(s). It's not like you have too run your system at max volume everytime you get in the car, LOL. Heck, the Alero isn't a large car, but it sounds extreamly good with what I've done. (See sig.) Just match your equipment. I recomend both Hifonics and Phoenix Gold. Depending on your speakers and sub, something like the [​IMG]
    HIFONICS ZXi8006 might be a good choice.
    Get it on Ebay for a couple hundred bucks

    Finding a 8" sub shouldn't be a problem. Are you sure a 10" wouldn't fit ?? You don't need (2) subwoofers, I'm currently running a single sub in the trunk of the Alero and it gets loud enough that it can drive most people out of the car, LOL. But anyways, alot of companys make 8's. Just get high quality subwoofer(s). I'm a big fan of the TREO Engineering subwoofers.
