    This won't happen for a while, but I'm curious. And I'd be upgrading slowly, so I could only buy one thing at a time. I have the factory premium system. What would give me the most 'bang for the buck,' a new stereo or new speakers? I don't want a huge system. I just want to upgrade the stereo and door speakers. Maybe the subwoofer or put an amp in it's place if possible. I don't know much about car audio, so I'm not sure what can be done.

    Also, if I did do an upgrade of the speakers and stereo, could I use the existing wires? Or would I have to rewire? Thanks for any help.
    Hey verbal, replacing the head unit can make your spekaers sound good if u get the rigt head unit. The Alpine CDA-9815 will make your speakers sound amazing! I work at a car audio store so I dela with these all the time. I have an alpine cda-9815 in my car and sounds 10x better then my cda-7995 which sounded 100x better then my factory unit. I would also STORNGLY reocmend geting speakers + a speaker amp, a speaker amp does add alot of power and sound quality to your system!

    Can you post a bigger diagram? Or just attach the file? I'd like to see it closer.

    BTW: Would replacing the speakers and HU require a complete rewire? Or could the existing wires be used?

    Head Unit is the better way to go!!! The head unit is the heart of a good system. I intalled my system this weekend. I have an Alpine IVA-800 tv/head unit. I put an amp on the factory speakers and the difference is night and day. The factory speakers sound really good, I'm very impressed with them, however I'm only running one 12 sub. I think any more than that, the bass would drown out the factory speakers.
