I know I have to change speakers but don't know brand whats good whats not!!! If anyone can help with or without specific upgrades I would greatly appreciate it.

I am about to go through my 3rd System for my Boxster in April/May...The first being the stock one of course. The system I have/had in there was great....I used a complete FOCAL Utopia's all the way around (Dash and Doors) and JL Audio for the 4 3.5" in the rears. Two way componets in the dash and 5" Subwoofers in each door panel. Powered by a 6 chanel JL Audio amp. System sounded great....with a price tag of about $2,000 no including my Pioneer Navigation Head Unit which was about $2000 by itself. Total system cost me just around $4k....

Now in April/May i am getting a Full REUS System. This company is based out of Orange County and just does UNREAL systems. With the REUS System my car will have two subs One 10" in the front trunk(inside the Spare Tire) ported to the cabin and one 8" inside the cabin which is basically in the center consle and can not be seen. There will be a total of 16speakers and 2subwoofers. I can not stress how great their systems are(no affiliations with Reus). However their stuff does not come cheap either this will run me around $5,900 but its all worth it .

If you need help in upgrading give me a shout....
