    My first aftermarket speakers.. Need help

    So here's the deal guys. I've got one blown 6x9 in the back of my sonata, and I can't stand it. I've been doing some research and finally decided to upgrade my speakers. I plan on getting the JBL GTO638 (6.5" for the front doors and the JBL GTO938 (6x9 for the back). I have an aftermarket head unit (nothing special though).

    Now for my question(s)!:
    •does anybody have and remarks about these speakers?
    •what's a pretty good head unit for around [or less] than $250 that is satellite radio ready?
    •how hard is it to install aftermarket speakers in a 2000 Hyundai Sonata?
    •is an amp necessary to power these speakers, and if so what should I look for?

    Thanks for the replies and sorry for my ignorance when it comes to audio systems!

    Yeah you will need an amp, those speakers are 2ohms and I've yet to see a hu that is 2ohm stable. I'm currently using the jbl gto608 comp set and i like them, but then again i have nothing to compare them to

    What specifications should I look for in an amp? I shouldn't need a super expensive once since they aren't subs, right?

    Budget (not counting speakers already bought) $500-$700. I want to get subs sometime in the future.

    As for the head unit, the only MUST HAVE is satellite capable and iPod compatible because the radio *****. Everything else is just an extra
