OK with MS-8...sure I imagine it will be ok....though its VERY powerful and you will likely have to turn it way down...

ID10, JL10wX, Morel are popular subs for this car, usually in a VP enclosure though.

You have plenty of power for the sub, just find a sub you like


As for the speakers if you want as efficient/loud as possible, you probably want the DLS R4 with a DLS 424 for a center. They are both rated 94dB/1w/1m@4ohm (97dB 2.83v/m)

You will still be limited by the sensitivity of the OEM under seats which I don't know what that is.

The SSMB8 are 89dB 1w/1m@4ohm as an example (92dB/2.83v/1m). I don't know about OEM.

SWS are 86.7dB (presumably 1w/1m at their respective impedance would place them at

SWS-8 89.7dB/2.83v/m
SWS-8xi 92.7dB/2.83v/m

However Technic has said the SSMB8 are MORE sensitive than YMMV
