My suggestion is to just save your money and buy a nicer one. A $200 to $300 system probably isn't going to sound that great or last that long IMO

I agree with plur. You could also peice on together....say buy the subs with that money and then later buy the amp and cap and then later buy the headunit

I dont know what it puts out offhand, I'd guess 40w/channel.

Of course the stock head unit wont push an 800w anything, there isnt a head unit out there that will, youll need an amp( a serious one) to get to 800w if thats the number in your head. And maybe do a little more resaerch and see what kind results guys get with much less power than that, a true 800watts is a LOT of fuggin juice, at 14volts thats over 57amps! I am pretty much sure a competition level 100watt system would blow your mind at how it sounds.

Get you one Memphis 500D D Class Amp, A Memphis Cap, and one 12" Memphis M4 I think....it's the one around $300 and just run that...you would be surprised how hard that hits!
