it was many moons ago in a galaxy far far away...well 2002/3 i think, but i was really happy with them. I wasn't an audiophile back then. I'm not sure i really am now compared to many people, but i thought they sounded good. I'd buy then again without hesitation. Can't remember which model i had, but they retailed for about £180 back then.
go for a alpine head unit, i have alpine speakers theyre good for clarity but not great for mid bass if u want a decent sub go for a stage 2 rockford punch [i have a 10" and boy its good no distortion] if u want low deep bass go for the 12" dont go for the 15 as they maybe deep but theyre slow try to match the power with the amp as these are juicy. if your running a big system you may need to get a power cap these store pwer so your battery doesnt drain which in turn under powers your system also you can upgrade you alternator to generate more power
sorry just reread your post 10" but pretty sure they also do 8" too the rockford fosgate's are great subs though the smaller ones nice fast and extremely punchy [and a unsurpassed build quality for rhe money without the enclosure the 10 weighs a healthy 20kg
After looking around on the net and one or two dog and bone I am now more worry about the fitter could damage my car's interior! the whole centre console need to come out and inside front and back panels too.....RISKY
