After market units are good. Alpine, Kenwood, Pioneer fit well. Get a used amp from ebay or somewhere else. The amps have wonderful crossovers to balance the speaker system. Unless you want "the works" and rewire your work of art with a more powerful after market amp and subwoofers.

Get a Bently's Manual for your car. It will be the best investment in your life. realoem.com can help you with your amplifier. Look in the trunk on the driver's side under the carpet panels on the wall of the trunk (not the floor). Your amp should be there. But check that site, just to make sure. Best of luck.
