I'm looking to upgrade my sound system and need an amp. I probably won't have a sub, but will have a total of 10 speakers:
- 2x 3.5s
- 4x 6.5s
- 4 tweeters

I'd like to fit the amp under the back seat bench, has anyone done this? And roughly what power should I be looking for.

I really like my Alpine PDX-5, and a friend has the JL audio 5 channel. I think they make all sorts of 4 and 2 channel amps in the same series, but they run cool and are really small. I definitely recommend a sub, even just one 8 or 10, it's nice having the bass response. What kind of speakers are you looking at/have? Most decent amps are going to be pushing around 75 watts RMS per channel, any more most speakers won't really handle.

I've pieced together a pretty nice system for cheap, the alpine amp, JL W3, focal 6x9, HERTZ 5.25s, infinity kappa 3.5s, all for around $400.

I was thinking about getting JBL speakers. I'd really like a subwoofer, but I don't know where I would put it. I already have a battery in the back so I don't want to take up more trunk space. I do have the ski bag area though, do they make subs that would fit that small area?

In the 90? I've been toying with the idea of building a custom box to fit back against the back of the seats. In my wagon I'm going to do a custom box to fit in the side compartments... I'd have to look in the back of my 90 to see where I'd put a sub.
