    Depending what your budget is, I went with the Hybird Audio Technologies (HAT) Clarus 6.5 ($519.99) components up front and the Clarus 5 1/4 midbass driver in the rear doors for fill upon the recommendation of Mr. Marv for my 2008 Tacoma DC. Mr. Marv is a vendor here on the forum and I encourage you to contact him. He is very knowledgeable in car audio. Mr. Marv also made my amp board and sub box and the quality is top notch.

    I was looking for a speaker that provided good midbass and a tweeter that was not harsh on the ears and I achieved that with the HAT Clarus line and without breaking the bank. I am extremely happy with these speakers. I know that Mr. Marv has had group buys here on the forum and that is when I purchased the speakers. I would definitely contact Mr. Marv.

    My system:
    Head unit: Eclipse CD7200 MKII
    Amp: JL Audio HD 900/5
    Ft speakers: Clarus C61-2
    Rr speakers: Clarus C51-2 (midbass driver only)
    Sub: JL audio 13TW5-3

    Once you upgrade your head unit you will notice a big difference. Let us know your budget and what type of music you listen to so we can recommend some speakers

    a new deck will make your stock speakers sound a lot better, so start there.
