let's start a list of 8" woofers that fit the door panels...

Legacy Audio LWF8X Car Subwoofer

I know these Legacy ones fit. I just installed these on a friend's GTS. You'll need to cut a bigger hole in the black plastic woofer mounting bracket but it's easy to do. You need to cut because the woofer has a bigger magnet.

I have the Kewood KFC-W208 in the front doors of my '90, with no cutting required. Bought them a long time ago (1996), so not sure if you can still get them. Continuous 100RMS watts power handling.

Also have a pair of Kenwood KFC-W108. I am planning on seeing if these will fit in the doors. They have a better frequency response (more of a free-air speaker). I'll give the heads up if it fits. May have to cut due to larger magnet.
Continuous 150RMS watts power handling.

Kicker RMB8's will fit. They are discontinued and do requrie a fair amount of plastic to be cut for fitment.

I have Lanzar vx830s in mine. Since I have a 12" sub I didnt need the 8" for bass so I got these triaxials. Not very expensie either. I think I paid around $50 or so shipped for the pair a few years back.

i just switched to the Kicker RMB8's and they do sound great and fit very easily, especially when they are on ebay for $89 with $24 shiping and there is a new model of them out, but i don't remember what its called. i just wish they came with a crossover network.
