it does improve the quality of ur music.

however, you need to have an amp to do that.

stock or aftermarket decks dont have enough power to push components.

clearly. It depends on the brands/quality and wattage too. Amp is a must! I'd say changing the speakers is def more important than changing the head unit.

I don't get the whole be quiet statement. Can anyone fill me in also?

I am also considering changing out my rear speakers after I purchase my Alpine HU.

I already have a Fosgate Punch 800 Amp Powering a 12 inch JL Sub in my trunk. Would I need to get another Amp?

Well first off it depends whether you have a two channel or multi channel amp(4) because if you only have a two you cant add more. Considering your wattage you would prolly need a new amp cause that 800 watts will be split 4 ways and thats not much power at all.

Actually becareful when you amp the components cause a lot of the good components operate in the <200 rms range. If you get an amp make sure it isnt gonna blow them.

I suggest these if you have the money to spend.

yes better speakers improve quality of the music. Also its better to have a nice headunit and not so nice speakers as opposed to the opposite. I have JL XR'S for around 300 dollars. Its so clean and crisp its sick. Its some of the best speakers i have ever heard.
