Good for you. There's probably 500 or more than you can chose from, or you could narrow it down by offering up some information that's actually helpful.

Really aiming at what's the purpose of the 8, IE midbass, midrange, fullrage. Any phyisical limitations?

I am lacking in vocals, there is just entirely too much bass and not enough vocals to keep up. There shouldnt be any issues getting them in

The fun is in saving money. Or just get a remote and mount it dear the drivers seat. Done.

Huh? You're lacking midrange, and want to do 8s in doors? Have you considered a much better midrange speaker?

I think the speakers sound good but there is alot of bass in my wagon for only 2 6.5's in the door. Now if there is a set that can keep up with 4 12's and about 2000-2500 watts that dont cost 800-1100 dollars then plz let me know

8's aren't going to solve any midrange volume problems, and if you're unwilling to spend some $$ on your front stage or turn down your subs, then nothing else you do will either.

Have you considered trading in your fronts for a 8",4",tweeter comp set from Hybrid Audio? This should give you all the front stage and mids you can handle. Just make sure to go active.

2 More subs and a couple thousand more watts on the substage should make it all better.
