Budget?

If you want to go inexpensive, your best bang-for-buck would be a pair of Phoenix Gold RSd65cs component speakers, about $90 shipped, and a Profile amp, about $100 shipped.

If you want to spend more, some nice speakers can be had from Rainbow or Hertz in the $250-$400 range, and there are plenty of high quality amps in the $200-$300 range.

I feel you should spend the money on a decent set. You can pick up some CDT CL series for less than $200 and they blow away anything in that price range. You can pick up an Alpine amp with nice clean power on Ebay for lees than $150 bucks Hit up Exige on here he is a CDT dealer with great prices.

HU- Alpine CDA-9831
Sub-RE Audio-SR12
Amps- Alpine MRV-F450 & MRD-M301
Speakers- CDT CL-62, 2 way comp. & CL-6 Midrange
Vehicle- 2004 Toyota Rav 4

What's "everything"? Speakers, new amp(s), new sub, new HU, wiring, etc?

TS-C720PRS for the comps and either the PRS-D2100T or KAC-X20 for the amp. Check OCS for the comps and Millionbuy for the amps. ;)

Then in that case, how about:

Speakers: Rainbow SLC 265 for $200-$250, depending where you buy them, or the Kick version for $50 more
Amp: Cadence TXA-3002 (http://www.cadencestore.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=125&idproduct=382) for $129
Wiring: Knu KLM 4-gague kit (http://www.knukonceptz.com/productDetail.cfm?prodID=KLM-K4) for $27

Can't go wrong with the Rainbow's, imo. Get the Kick versions.

Forget the rears for now... just remove what's back there altogether and let the sub take care of things in the back. Run with only sub+fronts for a month or two, as I find it's best to be able to set your soundstage and imaging most accurately in this manner. If you still feel the need to have some full range speakers in the rear after this time, then get some decent coax's.
