Sorry, but as a lifelong basshead (and bit a nerd about it to boot), I couldn't resist chiming in; I've been a Rockford Fosgate man ever since my first car.
It's fair to note that when it comes to a booming system there are (in my opinion) two types of people:
1. The person who just wants 'loud'. This person will stick any number of speakers and amps in a vehicle with no serious concern over brands, properly matching components in terms of wattage and resistance, etc. "Yo dog, my sh** is loud!"
2. The proper bass nerd. People who care greatly about their sound set up, who care about brand and care about making sure all of their components are matched correctly (again, rms wattage, resistance, resonant frequency response, sound stage, correct air space, understands the assorted technical differences between sealed and ported enclosures, etc).
There really was some beautiful and amazing music that came from the bass scene that I would bet alot of people who otherwise thought "big speakers" in a vehicle were a dumb, combined along with the people I mentioned in number 1 above would definitely have missed including people who otherwise loved electronic music. I would reference the most talented musicians such as Bass 305, Techmaster PEB, and all kinds of music from Neil Case (known to the world as either Beat Dominator or Bass Mekanik) as examples.
I'll stop talking now. This whole subject is just a big passion of mine. I wasn't even 10 years old and already had tons of these instrumental electronic tapes in my bedroom, just great music. Cheers.
