First time W124 owner. Need to upgrade sound sytem. HELP!!

My name is Israel, am from Nairobi, Kenya, East Africa and Am very new to this community. I need help. Am in the process of acquiring a 1994 W124 E200. I fell in love with the w124s. I think they're awesome. Let me point out that am a first time 124 owner.Here's my problem. I want to install a great sound system in the car. I need to install a head unit, component speakers, a sub and amps. I came across a forum in which guys have installed aftermarket sound systems in a 124. I need information on the challenges likely to be faced. My greatest concern is speaker positions. I have a feeling that speakers might not fit readily into a 124 especially in the doors. Plus, I saw that putting a sub in the trunk is a challenge, something to do with gas tank location. Please help me by shinning some light and how to go about it. I am planning on installing Boston Acoustics Component speakers on the front doors, coaxials on the rear doors, another pair on the dash, and a sub somewhere . I intend on using a Jbl Ms-8 for sound processing and probably a Jl amp. However, my main concern is the speakers. Will speakers fit on the doors? And how about on the dash and rear panel? And where can I place the sub? Kindly help. Thanks.
