Setting a nice TJ audio system

I have a 98 tj with a center console, non sub model. I have 5.25" polk db's in the dash and just ordered JBL GTO638 6.5-Inch for the soundbar. I would like to cut the console up to put a sub in. I have a sony cdx-gt400 hu.
Now I'm learning that my speakers will most likely be under-powered. What kind of amp should I buy? Will i really hear a difference? Building on a budget but I do want to eventually do a sub.
Last, anyone have ideas to putting a sub into a full console?
Thanks

for a nice system you are going to first off have to get rid of that sony paper weight and put a nicer headunit. the idea of trying to convert the center console to one with a sub isn't worth the time. for an affordable nice sub addition take a look at the powered subs. my first pic for a powered unit is the infinity basslink, im not a fan of kicker but they do make a decent powered sub.

An 8" slimline sub works quite nicely in the center console with a little modification. Amp'd of course.
