Radio/speaker help!!!

So I swapped the head unit from the base stereo to a Pioneer cs2800bs, 6.5" kicker cs speakers in the dash then a 5.25" JL Audio in the sound bar. I stuffed all the speaker pods and sound bar with polly fill and it still sound like a little tike toy. I know it was a base stereo but speakers have been swapped as well as the head unit. Why does it sound like crap!!!! Do I just need to ad an amp and sub to make it all come together?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit.. It's a 2016 JKU Sport S with non Alpine radio.

Not knowing the specs of your head unit (and not being able to look them up at the moment) I'd say you need an amp with a crossover, and sub. Most head units do not push enough power to make good sound. A sub is going to provide all the low end you are missing that is making your system sound like a toy.

I was hoping that's all it would be. Time to continue the shopping...
