Question Setting up my new system

HI everyone,
I've decided to put some old speakers and an old deck I have hanging around into my new(er) car.
I already have 1 SONY CDXS2000 52Wx4 deck, 2 Sony Xplod 6"x9" 260W 3-way speakers, and 2 JBL GTO6426 4"x6" 120W 2-way Speakers.
I also have 2 Sony XS-L121P5 1200W subwoofers on the way, although I'm not necesarily commited to using them (although I would prefer to).

I was wondering what type of enclosure I should get, and also what type of amp I should buy.

I don't need a system that will kill small animals from a distance, and shake birds from the sky. I just want something I can feel, with good sound quality.

Any advise anyone can give will be welcome.
Thanks

I think you should go with a system that will kill humans from a 1/4 mile away

It depends how much trunk space you want to sacrifice, you can build a large tuned ported box and get amazing SQ if properly set up, but with Sealed box's you tend to get better SQ, but not nearly as much SPL, and as long as you stick within the manufacturers sealed volume, you are good to go.

As for an amp, I would go with a Kenwood KAC-9152D, would be plenty of power for 2 of those subs @ 2ohm.

The Kenwood KAC 9152D can be had for a decent price too! Mine runs strong and cool.

Someting that does 800 or so at 2ohms mono. Like the Kenwood KAC9152D or a Clarion DPX1800. Also I agree 2cuft sealed would most likely work fine.

The kenwood is a very nice amp, I know 3 (4 incl. myself) running kenwood amps and no complaints yet (except I lost my bass control remote).
