Default 08 STI audio options and opinions

Hey guys,

Im pretty new to the subie community and to this site. I love my 08 sti. Its stock and with fog lights and tints so far.

I have not done any performance mods yet though. I want to, but I figure I'd ride the stock for a little bit before enhancing the performance (or should I do it right away? and what is first).

Ive been trying to do some research and I just wanted some help and opinion on what I should get for my audio set up.

Right now Im about to pull the trigger on the Alpine IVA w505

With that, I already ordered the custom AI 10 inch sub enclosure (waiting for it).

I wanted to know if its neccessary to get front and rear speakers to replace the stock ones. if so, what kinds do i need to get.

Sub, Im planning on getting JL 10w 3v3 because Im sure its fits in the enclosure.

what amp I need to get that will power the sub and also if i do get more powerful speakers. Also, so it fits under my driver seat.

I'd appreciate all the help and opinions out there.

Thanks!

do you have a link to the sub enclosure? IMO the stock speakers are pretty bad so I would replace them.

If you like JL Audio I would highly recommend the HD600/4 amplifier and the C5650 component speakers. I just put these in my 2008 Impreza OBS with an 8W3v3 and I'm thrilled with the results. I didn't do rear speakers and I don't regret it.
