Do a search under my username. Been there done that.

Biggest improvement comes from putting JL 5.25s up front.

Good luck

JL audio 5.25 in the front. Either 5.25 or 6" in the rear. JL audio sub is how I am going to do it. Right now I have the kenwood powered sub, which is adequate, but I am not really happy with it. Since the woman OK'ed the removal of the foot rest, I have the JL sub in the box.

Any speaker is better than the Blue Point ones installed.

Another sub option is the Bazooka 6.5" 200W. Fits perfectly on the rear sill with no modifications snuggly.

I've listen to both the TR & VR 5.25" JL speakers & prefer the VR's. I found them to be less bright with a warmer mid-range and worth the ~ $60 price premium IMHO. However, the difference will only be noticable if you're running a better HU &/or AMP. Jim Clayton sells some speaker adapter rings which work well to place a set of 5.25" JL's up front.
