I was thinking about subs and wondering what size other people have in their cars.

I run a single 10" in a subthump enclosure made for the ZX3/ZX5

I enjoy sound quality(SQ) as opposed to thump(SPL). It depends on your taste in music.

I have a single 12" Rockford Fosgate P3D2-12 wired in series to my Kenwood KAC-9105D amplifier. That means the amp is providing 500watts @ 4ohms to the subwoofer which can handle 600watts at 4ohms.

I'm using a ported Sound Ordinance single 12" box from crutchfield with 1.60 cubic feet internal volume.

The head unit is a Kenwood KDC-X996 and I have Polk Audio DXi571 speakers in all four doors. It sounds really nice in my 2006 Ford Focus ZXW. There is a little rattle of the rear hatch when it is turned up really loud, but that could just be my license plate.

How does a single 10" sound?

I also got a single 10" in a ported enclosure, getting roughly ~800w-1000w . I couldn't be happier. If you want a "boomy" bass tho, go with a 12".

I'm planning on two tens in a ported box. I was thinking about getting two twelves, but it would take up too much room in the back.

I'd be lying if I didn't say I too have considered two 10s. . A bit more than I personally need tho. Great option, nonetheless.
