Default Upgrade the stereo- keep the head unit

Ok..so we have been on this topic way too many times..and I have looked in to all the threads.

I am looking to do the following

Keep the head unit..
Upgrade the speakers
Upgrade the amp ( dedicated sub amp)
Up grade the sub woofer

What I want is a better system with killer bass,clean sound, and I am willing to put a unit in the trunk. But I want the inside of the car to remain stock looking..

I have been printing off what I can find, so I can take this to a good stereo
place.

Who would like to build this system for me on paper to take to a stereo shop?

Zgone's thread no longer has pictures.. which is too bad. I also could not find the specs on the ML speakers that are here on the forum.

Thanks for anyone who would like to take on this project!

Katy

I would do the vias tech + navtool + WDTV + sub with a dedicated amp first and then if you still feel the need do the speakers but I wouldnt do that just yet. Also dynamat will make your stock speakers sound louder/clearer since it will reduce outside noise and maximize their performance.

I think I am going to go with the DC gold reference N69R.6x9's

As far as amp and sub woofer..no clue as to which one(s) are the best fit and
the least issues to have changed out..

Comments?

I am not removing the back seat..but can sacrifice some room in the trunk.

i have an extra pair of CDT audio 6's if you need them. i have 14 in the car, sounds rediculous. but the box in the backseat doesnt let me get to the rear speakers, so i have no use. but check those out if you want a more luxury sound.
