If you want some good speakers to run off a head unit:
Alpine Type S
Rockford lower end lines (not the power series)
MB Quart
Infinity Reference
Good speakers off a real amplifier (not some cheap amp like you have now):
Alpine Type R
Rockford Power series (model has a T in it)
Hifonics Brutus (not my first choice, but not bad)
MB Quart
Infinity Reference
My personal favorites would be the Alpine, Rockfords, the RE XXX of course, MB Quart, or Infinity's. Make sure you get component speakers for up front, coaxials in the rear. And you only need to amplify the front speakers. Don't forget sound dampening material in your doors either, if they're door speakers. wink.gif
Get your speakers and a good 2 channel amp to power them (I can make some recommendations based off your speaker choice). From there, worry about your subwoofer setup. You could build up a single 8" subwoofer that'll absolutely BLOW AWAY your generic 12's you've got now.
Oh, and go check out sonicelectronix if you're in the States. wink.gif They're the newegg of car audio. Woofersetc is also good.

This man knows what he's talking about thumb.gif

Pioneerisloud, aren't you on CACO? I feel like I've seen your name before (and laughed tongue.gif )

If you respond to one of my posts in a very busy thread, I probably won't see it, so feel free to message me.
