Should be better than 'good enough'

The components will cost 6+K, the 6x9s are free, and the amp is 6K or thereabouts. You can get a JBL or Infinity Ref sub in a sealed box if you are ready to stretch your budget a teeny weeney bit.

Took it apart and yes, there were two pre-outs like I suspected Attached the aux from the local place, now will get the speakers and amps fitted from a reputed shop in the coming week. Will keep everyone posted and will post pictures.

@DerAlte Ok so 12k for the components + Amp + Rear Co-ax. I have a budget of 8-10 k left,which includes spending for wiring and enclosures. So which sub would you suggest or should I save up more and get something better at a later stage?

Ok so what I'm looking at is
1) Amplifier : Kenwood m846:
Specs: 60WattsRMS x 4ch at 4 Ohms
90WattsRMS x 4ch at 2 Ohms
60WattsRMS x 2ch + 180Watts RMS x 1ch at 4 Ohms

2) Subwoofer: Infinity Reference 12" DVC 1262W:
Specs : Power Handling, RMS 300 W
Power Handling, PeaK 1200 W
Frequency Response 23Hz - 400Hz
Nominal Impedance 2 or 8 Ohms
Sensitivity (2.83V @1m) 96 dB

3)Components: Infinity Ref 6030CS
Specs: Power Handling, RMS 90W
Power Handling, Peak 300W
Nominal Impedance 2 Ohms

I'm guessing the amplifier is going to run @ 60WattsRMS x 2ch + 180Watts RMS x 1ch at 4 Ohms when I connect to the sub with 2-channels bridged.
So the components are being fed with 60W - Is this good enough?
Also, the sub will be powered with 180W through the bridged channel at 4ohms when the sub is rated for 2 and 8 ohms. Should I be looking at different subs?

Let us put it in slightly different phraseology:
* The components will play well with 90W rms pushed into it, beyond which they will distort. When 300W is pushed into it, it will shudder, shiver, scream, croak and finally give up it's ghost!

* The amp is capable of pushing 60W rms into 4 ohms. The components are 2.3ohms impedance, so the amplifier will be able to push ~80W into them. No problem, since it is rated for pushing up to 90W rms into 2 ohms

* When you play music comfortably loud, the amplifier pushes anything between 1W to 30W depending on type of music and passage. If you actually manage to to push 80W, you will surely jump out of the car - it will be deafeningly loud with windows closed

The Infinity Reference 1260W 4ohms SVC sub is what you should be getting. A DVC sub with 4ohms coils can only be wired in parallel giving 2ohms, or in series giving 8ohms. Neither is suitable here. [SVC = Single Voice Coil; DVC = Double ...]
