Have em running off a diamond audio amp, which I would also reccomend, you can get them off fleabay at great prices for a real solid amp.

Also depending on your tastes you might just run the fronts off an amp and the rear off the deck. I personally just like rear speakers for a little bit of fill, so they dont need much power.
There are plenty of options out there for components. I've drank the active crossover kool-aid and can never go back to passive comps again. However, I've heard both the alpine type s and cadence cs comps and both sound very good for the price. There are also some $140 morels components that sound magical if you can squeeze them in your budget. I just did an install with these last week and was VERY impressed but I fear these are out of his price range. What I really liked about the Morels was the HUGE amounts of installation brackets and accessories they included. Left a nice taste in my mouth and saved me lots of time. But really, most components out there sound great so long as you FILTER OUT THE SUB BASS FREQUENCIES!!!!!! Even stock factory paper speakers sound infinitely better if you put a simple HPF on them.

I recommended that Tang Bands because they use a neodynium magnet that seriously reduces their weight and make them suitable for stock locations as it will not put too much strain on the existing speaker frames. However, if the original poster has the time, I recommend he go to home depot, buy a 4x2 3/4" or 5/8" MDF, have home depot use their panel saw and make a simple 0.5ft^3 cubic box with some carpenter glue and pre-drilled holes drywall screws. He should easily be able to hide this in his camarro somewhere, and put a SINGLE tang band in their and bridge the 3&4 channels on the amp to a single channel. Let me tell you that just one little 6.5" - 8" like that in a solid 0.5ft^3 box in a car with nice cabin gain like a camarro with just 100w will sound fantastic. Won't be obnoxious or boomy and will give you a very nice bass compliment to the front components. The MDF and glue / screws will work out to $20 tops, and you can get carpeting real cheap at local fabric shops if you want it to match the carpet of your camarro. That's what I would do if it were my car, my budget and if I didn't want excessive bass.

PS: if you go this route you will need a 4 ohm sub; a 2 ohm sub will NOT work with a bridged amp.

Very true about the hpf even stock speakers on newer cars are capable of at least decent volume if you filter out frequencies below 80 hz or so... Heck doing that and installing a subwoofer would be good enough for the majority of the population.

Check out the cvl k series cadence speakers if you get the chance and let me know what you think. Like I said they need a good bit of power to move the 3 inch voice coils, but they are really a high end set that you can get a steal on often due to the lack of reputation.
