    Hey there, I was in the same boat and took my door panels off to find the speakers are EXTREMELY shallow which doesn't leave you many options as far as aftermarket upgrades without having to build some kind of kick panels. I went this route at a local stereo shop and was very pleased with what they came up with. I was able to drop a set of Focal seperates in the doors, and they sounds incredible. If you look on Crutchfield they have a fitament guide that can direct you towards something that my be able to drop in. Good luck.

    You can find various speakers that will fit but you run into the issue that the stock HU pushes next to nothing in power. So keep that in consideration when buying speakers...

    I tried a set of Polk components and they sounded terrible (good speaker) because the HU just couldn't drive them.
    For now i have a couple of older infinity reference 2-ways in the front.. fit fine but needed an adapter ring for screw holes.

    if you search you can find some adapter rings made for the wrx to allow normal depth speakers to be installed. IA performance is one i cant think of and Kartboy used to.

    Another option is the factory subwoofer. It doesnt add a HUGE amount of bass but it helps a bit. I installed one just due to is plug and play ease of use and it mounts under the passenger seat so no huge box in back and no running wires from engine bay.

    Its not Hi-Fi. wont win any awards... but certainly better.
