    I wouldn't bother until you've added the sub. The stealth sub not only adds proper punchy bass & mid bass but it also free's up the cabin speakers from trying too hard, as you run the HU on -2 to -4 on the bass setting. So you can drive them harder without the distortion you are getting at the moment. You can spend quite a bit of money on the speakers and the required MDF fitting adapters and the result is still not much of a discernable improvement as the speakers are driven by a puny 20w (peak) per channel and the speakers are hanging off a flimsy door card loosely clipped to the doors. Go down the sub route first and then see what you think.
