    If you want an overall good sounding system, not a spl monster system, I would spend 100% of your budget on a set of separates and install them in the doors. Go with 3 ways if possible. Your amp can run the 6X9 mounted to the panels in the back and the separates. That is the best upgrade I have ever made to a system..I added MB Quart 3 ways. A 6.5"S woofer, a 4" midrange and a titanium tweet in each door..I ran it all with a Fosgate punch 200 and a sony head unit with cd changer I ended up taking out my sub and selling it as it overwhelmed the balance of music. You could piece together a nice 3 way setup...you could prob fit an 8" free air sub in the door for more bass if you like...

    some kind of seperates in the doors or qforms in the kicks. A 10" subwoofer or even an 8" fits really nice in a side panel in back. Real clean and if you have the internal spare tire you can hide it behind it. Bass isnt directional
