What parts of the stock system do you want to keep? How much depth do you have for new components?

What is your budget?

Also once you tell us your budget, clarify a little for us what you are looking for. If you are looking for a SQL setup, that to me is a lot different than a SQ setup. In a true SQ setup you would want everything to blend together perfectly. SQL setups to me, are systems where everything is made to be extremely loud and clear,(sounds good to 90% of people who are not true audiophiles) but a little less emphasis on perfect staging.

Subwoofer

Amps

Components (you will need an adapter to convert from the stock 6x8's)

If you build your own box, then that would still leave you about $350 for your amp kit and sound deadener for the doors and any rattles. Both amps might be more than you need, but that gives you some headroom, and some ability to upgrade your sub or front stage later on.

Square subs have more cone area than the same sized round sub. That is the upside of a square sub.
Round subs traditionally have better SQ because square subs are more prone to distortion, and are less efficient because of the shape of the sound waves and the way they travel from the center of the sub.

Above you stated you wanted SQL, IMO if that is really what you are looking for then you do not want a square sub.

most highend coxials sound great..
why not just add a subwoofer for now and later save up for a new front stage?
1 grand sounds like alot but its barely icing on the cake when it comes to using good proucts that will last and sound excellent..
for example a good woofer and amp alone is going to cost you 500 after box wiring and the actual amp and woofer..
for example
http://www.ascendantaudio.com/arsenal.php about 180 shipped..
http://www.woofersetc.com/p6859/FD-6...-Amplifier.htm 280
125-150 for a custom ported box that would give you excellent FR and SQ..
so your looking at another 60 bucks for a good wiring kit..

as for components id suggest you save 300 for the fronts alone and another 350 for an amp for them 50 for sound deadning and another 150 to get the doors sealed of to get a good frquency response and good midbass/range as well..

on second thought..
http://www.woofersetc.com/p6856/FD-2...-Amplifier.htm
http://www.woofersetc.com/p4985/TSC7...ker-System.htm
300+180
35 bucks for sounddeadning and seal your doors up depending on your car may cost you 20 buck or 150 bucks if someone has to make some custom door panels..
