Heres your best bet,

Run your components from the amp. 90w (if its RMS) is good enough for your comps. If you cant find any GT pods look out for a company called AudioScape, they make some.

What 10" sub are you looking at? If you gave me a budget I could reccomend an Amp/Sub combo.

My reccomendations..... Dont forget you'll need another amp to power the sub if you use the current amp for the components.

MB Quart RWC 304 12 inch (30cm) 'Reference' Series Subwoofer, power handling 300W.

This is an excellent sub, and can be had for £130.

or

Rockford Fosgate RFP3412 - I can give you information on a Car Audio company I know, who supply both. (this sub is £110 and a bargain at that)

As for an amp, another amp similar to yours will give you reasonable power and matched performance to the fronts.

Those prices dont include an MDF box, you can either buy them seperately, or build your own. It really isnt as hard as it sounds.

And those prices are the best you will find, when you take into account the company has the best customer service record I've used.

BEFORE ANYONE GETS ALL STROPPY, I DONT WORK FOR ANY OF THE COMPANIES I RECCOMEND.... USUALLY IF I RECOMEND A COMPANY ITS BECAUSE I'VE BOUGHT FROM THEM.

www.caraudiodirect.com - delivery is included in the price, and the price is still cheaper than everywhere else.

And as for the door pods, either find a Fiat Breaker, or post in the wanted section on here.

Either of the subs I mentioned further up the post will do the job just fine with that amp.

I'd rate the Infinity over the rest, the subs that I mentioned are also available in 10" size for slightly less.

Find out what the model number is, should be something like KFC3003 .... its the bit after this I need to know, as they made variations of that sub for sealed, ported, and free air use. get the wrong one and it'll sound terrible.
