New speakers?

I'm looking for a new speaker system in my 2010 Jeep Wrangler Sport. I'm looking for a louder, more crisp sound in my music especially on the highway with the soft top. Should I replace the headboard or all the speakers in general?

I replaced the sound bar and dash speakers with these. Kicker 40CS654 6-1/2" 2-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com. I replaced the tweeters with these. Pioneer TS-T15 (tst15) 3/4" Soft Dome Tweeters - Sonic Electronix. I added this too. Sound Ordnance B-8PTD 125-watt compact powered subwoofer at Crutchfield.com. Sounds great with my soft top.

Thanks for the input, I'd rather replace the headboard than add a sub in the back though. Had one previously and enjoyed the bass but did not really increase the quality of the music up front.

This sub is under the front passenger seat so it definitely helps up front.

So after the upgrades is there a significant difference?
You don't have an amp for the speakers right??

I just replaced my 12 JK "base system" speakers with the Kicker 77KICK10 upgrade from Mopar. HUGE difference.. Way more bass and much clearer highs with nothing more than a speaker swap.. I wasn't expecting much but wow.. Looking at Dr. Evils link, they may even be the same speakers, just re-named. I bought an 8" powered Bazooka tube at the same time but I'm in no hurry to install it because The sound is so much better already.

EDIT: NOt the same speakers as Dr Evils. The ones I got are 75 watt RMS, have a silvery cone and are made to factory fit in my JK. Three screws and they drop right in.
