If its the stock Speakers. They suck. Get anything Alpine, sony, or Pioneer. Ive had nothing but good experiences with these companys.

Pheonix Gold RSD6.5's. They'll still get loud off of the headunit's power. Do you have an aftermarket headunit?

Don't waste money on speakers for the rear, put that towards the head unit and front speakers. If you must have sound coming from the rear speakers for rear fill then the stock speakers will be sufficient. Getting better speakers for front the doors or a receiver with more bells and whistles that you would enjoy would be better spent.

If you have the money replace all four if you are getting a head unit.

Couldn't disagree anymore... If the OP is 6' or taller rear speakers tremendously make a difference... I'm 6'2" and sit pretty far back... I didn't have rear speakers for a year and just put some in, It's amazing how much they helped. Not only is the music louder, it is much clearer and crisper.

@OP I would recommend the infiniti kappa's... They are great!!! Have 4 and they are great all around speakers!
