A sealed box is probably your best bet for the amp.

if your looking at getting a 4 + 1 way amp to power the speakers plus power your amp, you're going to be paying quite a bit.

These are mutually exclusive. You can't have great sound from cheap crap.

if you don't upgrade your front speakers at the same time, your car will sound like ****.
there are several different car audio magazines out there. pick up a couple and read.
there are several different car autio shops out there. go to them and listen to different speakers.

my opinions:
corner speakers: MB Quart, Boston Acoustics
subs: Pioneer, JL Audio
corner amp: PPI
sub amp: Rockford Fosgate, HiFonics,

Umm wwhen i got my car this was the first thing i did. I got 4 ALPINe speakers. Then i just recently got a Fosgate 12" and 900W amp. IT sounds marvelous. So yeah, thats what i reccomend.

HES RIGHT ONCE AGAIN. YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! Name brand and a little more expensive = last longer & sounds better.

if you ebay-

Head unit- about 100$ or 150$
Speakers - good brand 100$ or 150$ for four depending on model
Sub - 2 12" fosgate subs USED 80$
Amp - 900W fosgate amp 80$

so thats about 360- 500$ if you do it yourself. Add about 200$ maybe for someone else to do it. Although at circuit city u can usually get free installation but thats cause they jack up the prices.
