We have some really good 10" woofers for $20 each. 8" are under $15.

Here is an excellent deal on 12's. A couple dollars more per woofer then what you stated but well worth it in my opinion.

I can vouch for these. I have one playing right now. It is in a sealed box of about 3 ft^3 and will rumble quite nicely down to 30Hz with a signal out of my PC sound card. With the cabin gain of a car a pair of these should rattle the windows just fine.

Now with twenty drivers in any car short of a motor home I don't think you will actually have IB since the Vas of the drivers added together will approach the entire volume of the cabin but this is a good thing for this driver since the Qts is a spot over 0.4 and thus it likes a little bit of loading.

I would say even a dozen or so of these would be serious overkill. The power handling is "only" 150W but it really won't hurt a thing to use an amp of significantly higher rating as you should never let the amp get to full output anyway.
