    Praise your STi system you could have a TR one. I found the best upgrade for the money was the HU.

    I have had two (first one died and was warranteed)

    The first was a JVC KDSH1000. It was like $350 from sounddomain.com and I loved it. USB, Aux in, Ipod, etc. but the best thing was the BBE digital processor. made the stock speakers sound purely AMAZING!! I thought I had a BOSE system for a while. Then when that died I got a Kenwood MP 832U. Same functionality, same price but no BBE. It took a little bit of playing around with the presetts and it sounds way better than stock, but the BBE processor of the JVC was unbelivable.

    It's bumpy and not that impressive...and the road is curvey.

    anywho, I am just wondering if the stock speakers should be changed first or is it the actual reciever/radio that should go first?

    Reciever radio should go first, trust me and 06wrx4me. I changed my stock unit to an alpine(ipod fullspeed ftw!) and the sound difference was night and day. The amp in the stock unit is absolutely the biggest piece of junk ever. You will be pleasantly happy.

    If you do speakers first with stock hu you will not notice a very good improvement in sound at all IMHO. The stock deck does not have the wattage to power better speakers

    Check this out:

    Alpine CDA-9857 W/ Ipod full speed

    Same setup i did
