Default want to upgrade sound system.

hey guys i have an 02 edge ext cab. i wanna put a better system in my truck and need some input. i wanna replace front and back stock speakers with nicer and louder speakers that will make good bass as well. i dont want to sacrifice one of the jump seats because i drive alot of people but if its necessary i will do it. i heard you can wire an amp straight to the speakers to make them work great but not sure if they were correct. can I? any ideas etc or names of speakers or specs of speakers etc to look for would be appreciated.

anything helps. thanks

i no nothing about audio and wiring...sorry

I dont have Alpine Speakers but I do have a alpine h/u alpine type R 12" sub and a 500W alpine amp....so i can basically vouch that Alpine is the shit im going to be putting im some speakers in a couple months just have to pay insurance and already preordered Cod Black Ops and Assasins Creed Brotherhood for 360 so i have alot of money going out the door.
