    youcant put a sub on a shelf that just wouldt work, you can put 6x9s on your shelf but it you dont want rattle buy a stealth shelf or make an mdf one. if you want subs put them in the boot, but if your going for really powerfull subs dont bother with the 6x9s, it will distort

    Depends what else you have in there and what type of sound you want. Personally, I'm not a big fan of 6x9s. You'd be better off with some decent components in the front. Subs on the shelf is a no no, unless you have a good solid shelf. You would also need a "free-air" sub. A sub in a box is more common and will probably give you a better sound. You'll need an amp to run a sub but you can buy pre-amp'd sub packages.

    i always find it better to get seperate amp + sub, packages usually come with pants amps, like the vibe cbr12 twin evo, it comes with the blackbox 2 if its active, and the recommened amp is a monobox 4, like 5+ times more powerful

    i have components amped in the front and back, great sound from them, i have a poroper auto accoustics stealth shelf that i had 6x9s in them,

    much prefer the components, they are alpine type e, not the best but do the job,
    nbought them from a place in barrhead mate if you want to know where it is let me know
    What is cross posting? Is it when you get angry and post it on a forum?

    do you have a 3 door or a 5 door,
    if its a 3 door you can make the rear speaker hole bigger and fit 6X9s into the rear 3/4s. there is a "how too" in the fourum. I did this and have 2 shallow subs in the boot this way nothings on show and I still have a boot

    you can buy subs that are designed to go on the parcel shelf but personally i'd say you're better off with one in the boot - they'd sound way better and probably be a lot cheaper.

    i'd say go for the sub first and get the 6x9's later. the sub will give you a lot more bass punch - the 6x9's will give you a bit more but really in my experience all they do is make your system that bit louder (as if it needs to be! ;D)
