Radio system for a 87-93 for car....

So lets say someone wanted to put a new stereo system into a 87-93 fox coupe. What would be a decent setup to go with start to finish? I do not want any type of speaker box in the trunk or really any kind of speakers sticking out anywhere they don't belong unless I have no choice. The car is about to get the interior yanked out and peel & seal put on the floor, doors, and even the roof. The only thing I'm after is a nice stereo that sounds clean and one that I can plug my Sirius sportster into the radio. I'm pretty open to ideas....

Dynamat Xtreme is great stuff, but there are a lot of cheaper options that would be much better than peel and seal. In fact, using nothing at all would be better than peel and seal.

About how many sqft of material do you think it wold take to do the firewall, floor, both doors, and roof? $131 for 36sqft isn't as bad of a price as I thought it would be....

Looks like you need well over 100sqft to do the job right....

This stuff looks pretty good, no?

I think that 3 boxes (36sqft/) would do the entire car.
