But I guess alpine,rockford fosgate,mtx is good too.
Just go for a well known brand and you actually cant go wrong.
I must say I got myself a digital designs 12 inch and it eats the double amount of power, I know earthquakes do it too.
What kind of power are you looking for ?

Not sure if this helps but i have this 10" Rockford Fosgate woofer and its pretty good, sounds awesome.
I'd take a good guess that the 8" version is good as well.
Hope this helps mate.
Edit: Links aren't working for me for some reason but just google Rockford Fosgate P2D2-8

The main problem you'll have here will be getting a flat signal out of the factory system. If you are planning on just using a hi/low converter, your sub will be getting fed a heavily eq'd signal, designed to maximise the output of the crappy factory speakers. There will be all sorts of frequencies missing from it and it may even be a dynamic eq, which means as you turn the system up, bass frequencies are continually eq'd (i.e reduced) to protect the factory speakers, leaving your new sub having nothing to play and sounding thin no matter what you do. It's very annoying.
It can be solved with a number of signal processor options, depending on the nature of your install and budget.
If you are using an aftermarket head unit then obviously ignore the above as you'll be fine if you take a full range pre-out or a sub out.
