nooo no. do what my sig says. Pioneer speakers are reasonably priced. And i think the best sounding. I spent a long time sitting in the audio room at the audio shop by me, picking out the best sounding speakers, and i ended up with the pioneers. Ill get you exact model and everything if you want to know.

But i would say if you want your system to sound real nice and not burn the pocket dry. Replace the speakers with pioneers, get a 350watt 4channel amp for the speakers(nothing sounds better then amped interiors), get 1 set of silk tweeters with crossovers so you dont blow them. Then 1 kicker l5 in a ported box and like a ~500 watt mono amp. This will give you an amazing sound quality system and still be able to bump when you want it to bump.

you'll only run into one problem, and thats rattles, and that needs a whole new thread to talk about, anyone who has subs in there coalt will be able to tell you about the rattles.

Very true. JL is the way to go, but can get pricey depending on what you buy
