The first thing that you should post is your budget.

When I put in my stereo I didnt have a huge budget so I went with some lower end jl audio subs. I had heard really great stuff about there w0 series. so I have two 10's in my car. I had them in a atrend ported box but it didnt sound very nice and the box was big and annoying in my trunk so I did a lot of research on boxes and came arcross a company by the name of PWK Designs. What they do is take the subwoofer you have and design a box perfectly matched for your sub and for your car. now that I have this box installed and tuned up my stereo is amazing. There are a few people I know of who have spent double what I have and my stereo sounds much cleaner and louder than their's. Once you have an idea of a budget let us know and I'm sure we can give you a better idea of what would be good.
