1 10" MTX in a large (well built) ported box with a 1000 watt amp with a 3 farad capacitor. Then up your battery to an marine grade optima spiral cell battery. 200a circuit breaker, with 1 gauge wire. Remove all the molded carpet, then dyna-mat everything. Put rubber stick on pads on your license plate back and remove or prop open both cabin vents in the trunk.

P.S. Buy stock in a company that sells hearing aids.

Actually kickers have gone down in quality lately, even the lower end memphis speakers are better. The name means nothing any more, performance talks, speaking from the feedback I get from 3 major audio shops I deal with, 1 well set up T9500 10" MTX hits harder than 1 12" kicker or rockford fosgate. I didn't believe it either but "the proof is in the pudding" as they say.

i dont get the whole loud bass thing. 1 10" sup with a 400w amp is more than sufficient to hear music in its proper form :

I agree, I have one old school 10" Rockford Fosgate HX2 wired up to a 500 watt Kenwood monoblock amp, and it can hit pretty damn hard. Great, tight sound out of it too. More than enough bass to get the best feel for the music, any more than a single 10 with a good amp in an e30 is just plain nuts. lol

Rfitz25 is on a distinguished road
I had an Infinty 10" and 150watt Kenwood in my Ford ranger (4.0 V6)that seemed to be enough for me. The key was the 3 adjustable filteres 1 Low pass 2 High pass. I could blow out most Hondas with my Black Sabath, old Van Haled, DOA, White Zombie, Maralyn Manson, etc CD's LOL
I havent built my E30 up yet but like to hear good input. I think theres a form for that (stereo/electronics) here too.
I'm still working on the go fast parts.

Cheers,
Richard Fitz
