Almost always aftermarket speakers sound better than factory supplied. An exception would be if they were extremely inefficient and needed gobs of power to drive them properly. The wattage you quoted simply means that they are capable of receiving 80 watts consistantlywith minimal distortion whereas the factory jobs would crater ifsupplied 80 watts. The Pioneer's sensitivity is 92db so they should sound very good even with low to moderate power.

I don't have any recommendation for a head unit. You might consider saving up a little more moola for a nicer one down the road. Are you replacing the front speakers also?

Blapunkt (spelling...) has quality speakers for a lower price. Of course, the shining standard is Alpine...but you can find several of their products to be surprisingly affordable.

Youll notice some difference but not a lot so long as you use the stock head unit. That things making about 7 watts per channel which isnt enough to power any decent speaker. You may even notice a DECREASE in bass response.

I highly recommend getting an amp. This will do more to improve your SQ than anything else. In fact, youd get better SQ with an amp and factory speakers than with new speakers and factory head unit.

EDIT- Actually.....you might want to get a head unit first...then the amp.

Not necessarily.

An aftermarket head unit would be the best thing to have with an amp, but if you can only choose one, Id pick the amp.

Most amps nowadays accept speaker level inputs so you really dont need an aftermarket HU to work. You may have a little lowe noise floor (i.e. hiss) but unless youre competing it wouldnt be a huge deal and you can always buy a line driver later on that would fix that.

However, if you can afford both, Id get a good aftermarket head unit and an amp.

Youll also want to replace the front speakers too. Those are the ones youll be hearing the most out of and youd be much better off with a good set of speakers down there.
