RE: stereo

If you go with an 8" they require minimal air space (< 1 cu. Ft.) but I
personally don't think 1 is enough. You could use 2 8" or maybe a 10" (still
minimal air space, especially the new ones on the market). The larger the
speaker dia. the deeper the bass note. W/ an 8" you'll get good drum beat
sound (punchy) w/ a 10" you'll start to actually feel it ("loud rap cars").
It also depends on the amp you use and how high you have it turned up. I had
a pick-up w/ a 15" and the way I had it set up, and depending on the music,
it just helped w/ the full range of sound. 
To keep the use of your trunk you can make a wedge shaped box that fits
tight against the back of the back seat. When doing this you'll get better
sound if you remove any sound deadening material between the trunk and back
seat. Also, you can experiment w/ the speakers facing towards the inside of
the car or facing towards the trunk. I've had better sound w/ the speaker
facing away, but it's all preference.
