    Confused and needing help...

    Hi all,

    I am very new to car audio for anything and I'm looking for some help with the audio setup in my 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.

    The only thing I know about my current setup is:
    1: I have a Pioneer (deh-s5010bt) head.
    2: I have the stock speakers.
    3: The stock speaker setup includes; 2 tweeters in dash, 2 6"x10" speakers for front doors and 2 6.75" speakers for rear doors.

    Here is what I'm looking for...

    I don't want to go full idiot with my system, I just want to be really annoying (depending on who you ask). I chose the head I have, because I like the Pioneer brand and it had the features I wanted. Now I need some help choosing speakers and a sub-woofer for my vehicle.

    What should I look for in speakers for best performance at full or even half volume? Also I have trouble with hearing multiple sounds, so I love bass. It feels good when I have my bass set to max and the treble set to minimum. I want more of that feeling. And what should I look for in a sub-woofer (to help with that low bass resonance)?

    Any help for anyone at all would be greatly appreciated...

    Thanks in advance

    budget would def help also how much of your rear cargo area are you willing to give up space-wise.
