Well to be honest, I would be fool to dismiss your advise. I've generally owned hot hatches in the past where I guess the sets I speak of, would have worked a charm. I see the Earthquake 8" seem to be the popular choice for under seats, but is this not a substitute instead of having a sub in the boot, I'm not a bass head if that makes sense. As for 4" component set, I'll start looking.
