What speakers to upgrade to?

Right now I have the BA speakers that come with the ss and I'm looking to upgrade for better sound. I currently have 2x JL 12W3's with a JL HD750 amp. Would I be okay with just replacing the 2 front speakers and upgrading the speaker amp? What's the best speakers out there right now and amp or what you would recommend?

What amp would you recommend running for just the 2 door speakers? And did you leave the stock amp for the rest of them or use the new amp for all the speakers?

When it comes to sound, there is a lot of personal preference involved since we all hear differently. Personally I like JL Audio as someone mentioned above as well, and some of my favorites that I've recently heard are the Focal Performance Series. The amp will depend on exactly which speakers you choose. The JL HD series amps are one of my favorites due to size and performance.

My amp runs all the speakers so that wont help much. You may also look into alpine digital series of amps, i am using one in my 67.

Yes, the Alpine PDX Series is also a great choice. Compact with great performance.

Focal speakers sound great. I have them in my SS with a Arch Amp. I went with the MTZ Sub box from Chevy. I got it before I realized what I could of got for $1000.00. Anyways I have a good sounding set up now.

Buy the most your money can get....most of the time (name plate aside) more money gets you a better product. I stay focal, inifinty, polk, hertz, and the like. But there are so many other less know options.

The hertz hsk 165 look pretty good to me, if I were to get 2 of these should I look at this for the amp? http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Q0ToBUA...o-JX360-2.html
