Hi all. Newbie into car audio. I have a quite old Volvo V70 that has many, many, many km under the hood to play with. I live in Sweden and the music that will be played in the volvo when I'm done, will mostly be hard rock, metal and progg.

Welcome to CA.com, do you need suggestions on what to get?

Thanks for the welcome. Yes, I would like suggestions, but later on please. I have the habit of trying to get a feel for the subject by reading a lot, and hanging on forums like this, and when I think I have got a feel for it, zoom in on the subject with the help of experienced folks like you.

But when I think of it, go ahead, something to go by is always nice.

I am going for a small SQ system. Small at least in the sence that I cannot/will not spend to much. I thought something like 2500 USD for subs, speakers and amps. Cables and other "small" stuff can be extra. I am thinking dual 12" subs, and a two way front system.

I have a few demands on the woofers though. I do not know if they are reasonable or not, but they are what they are.
No PP-cones
VC at least 3" diameter

I've been wondering, how much wattage do one need to fill up a Volvo V70 from a sub/speakers perspective?
