Sound system upgrades?

Our 2018 30 DS came with a Pioneer AVH-X390BS head unit which is really nice as far as head units go. Our speakers however, are Jensen... which are about as cheap as you can get. Our outdoor speakers sound like theyíre at the end of a pvc tube.

I want to keep the head unit but upgrade speakers and add some in the driver/passenger area. Has anyone done this upgrade yet?

This was the first thing I did! I replaced all the interior speakers with 6.5" Kicker speakers and have 5.25" Kicker Marine speakers coming today for the outside. I replaced the deck with a Kenwood unit and have an 8" Kicker Sub coming today as well that will be powered by a 600W Kicker Amp and hidden in the cabinetry for a better sounding system and if it's not already hooked up to the main TV inside, I will hook it up to that as well so we have kinda a surround sound going on in there
The speakers up front were smaller than the 6.5" I believe 5.25" but a quick template and saw took care of that issue.

I measured out these JL Audio 6x9ís and they fit neatly into the recess where the 5.25 is now. I havenít checked the depth yet though.

I would like to put additional speakers right next to the driver/passenger near the floor. We travel with our bunk down and do not get much sound up front because of that. A friend suggested getting Marine speakers because theyíre designed to fill a large area with sound and do not need an enclosure.

Iím liking this idea too... Did you end up using the 6x9s?

Thanks,
