My Cobalt is going stealth....
I installed an MTX X Thunderlink...it's only about 100 watts, but works just fine with the stock speakers and stock MP3/XM head unit I got from ebay. The only thing I might upgrade to down the road is a double DIN in-dash DVD and Boston Acoustic speakers. Probably with the MTX X Thunderlink and no amp for the speakers.
In my other car (no longer drive it, but still have it...99 Saturn SC1) I had an Alpine head unit (upgraded to a better HU by Kenwood), had Rockford Fosgate speakers in the front being run by a Kenwood 2-channel amp. No rear speakers most of the time. Alpine MRD-M500 mono amp powering a JL Audio 12W6v2 in a sealed enclosure. That system could be heard from a ways away. Not the loudest or the best, but very decent at the time I had it. This was a few years ago. I kind of got out of car audio (since having a kid and other priorities that go along with marriage and home ownership).
I've had so many different setups over the past 8 years. I won't go into detail. Still have a JL 10W6v2 and my Alpine amp so if the bug bites me, I'll get that put into the Cobalt (just have to have the sub fixed...bought it on ebay...guess what...it was blown).
Someday I'll get back into it, but not in a daily driver (grocery getter/kid hauler). I'll save that for when I get my sports car (Sky Redline, new Camaro (probably a V6), or 2004 GTO in Cosmos Purple). My goal is to have a sports car with 400whp and show quality. I'd like to have it by 30, but that won't happen...I'm just over 4 years away. My Cobalt won't be paid off till I'm 29 at the rate I'm going.
