I'm doing the same to my 2011.
Alpine replacement speakers front and back with a Alpine plug and play amp.
Ordered everything from Crutchfield.

When people want to keep the stock head unit they typically use need a line out converter like the JL Audio CleanSweep, AudioControl LC6i, or Audison Bit One. Using one of these allows them to add an amplifier(s), upgrade their speakers, and add a subwoofer. In your case, you don't want to add a subwoofer so I'd say to get the Alpine Power Pack. It's essentially an amplifier that works with stock and aftermarket head units. It's a little less powerful than most regular amplifiers, but it will still be an improvement in sound when paired with new speakers.

As for speaker recommendations, I recommend going to a car audio store near you and listening to them. There are a lot of good ones out there but which ones sound the best is up to you.
