Default What type and wattage amp and subwoofer should I get for my 2002 Ford Ranger?

I recently bought a Pioneer DEH-p3000ib and 4 Infinity 6 x 8 Reference speakers and I installed it all with my friend. The speakers are amazing and the deck is awesome. The major problem i am having is rattling when its only turned up about half way, and I want to get an amp and sub eventually. What is a cheap way to go about stopping the rattling in the doors, ect (it is a regular cab with a very little amount of space behind the seats- about 8 inches wide and 11 inches high with about 14 inches of width space?)

I also wanted to know what kind of wattage I should get for a small amp and if anyone knows of a good cheap sub. Would it be cool to get a little 8 inch sub and set it in the middle behind the seats? (The speakers have a 60 watt rms and 180 peak power. The stereo deck I have is 50 watts x 4/ Should I get an amp to power just the sub?)

Thanks in advance, sorry for the long post.
Reg cab Ranger owners, help!

I have the same deck it is really cool because you can control the sub from the remote of your cd player.

I had 2 RE 8inch subs in a custom sealed box that I had built at my friends shop.

And a 300watt memphis amp.

It was perfect and only cost about 300 dollars.

I wouldn't go for less than 2 subs.
These are some cool subs that my friend has. They fit in less than .5 ft box. very cool for behind the seat.

Hope this helps

well the rattling well first do you mean like it rattling the door panel or is the speaker getting distored at half if the speakers getting destored at half thats not very good and for subs i have to 18inch type r's with a 4000 watt rockford fasgate but that was a little expencive i would try maybe a 12 inch expload or something cheap you can get a 12 inch expload and a 600 watt amp for around 200 dollers if you dont buy it online or from a store... but if you want something good you have to pay your moneys worth
