    Hey everyone,

    Going down the aftermarket audio path and been talking with a local installer about what my options are. Here's what we have on the table:

    Replace pillar tweeters
    Replace front door speakers with component midrange
    Replace rear door speakers with coaxial (if added with front then include 4-channel amp)
    Add NVX amp + Sub
    Add Dynamat to 4 doors + rear wheel wells

    Obviously the pricing goes up quickly if I pick all the options so trying to find out where to get the most bang-for-buck here. I have the base audio and typically I'm the only occupant in the car, so I am thinking:

    Replace front door speakers with components
    Add NVX amp + Sub
    Add Dynamat

    OR

    Replace front door speakers with components
    Replace rear door speakers with coaxials (+ 4-channel amp)
    Add NVX amp + Sub

    OR

    Replace pillar tweeters
    Replace front door speakers
    Add NVX amp + Sub

    What do you guys think is the best option, or is there a different combination altogether that will provide the best bang-for-buck?

    For reference, I listen to Pop/Rock/EDM/Hip-Hop/Jazz, so ideally something that can handle a wide variety of music.
