Willhello. My name is***** can help you with your question.

The system that you purchased for it is an excellent system and will actually sound very good on its own. If those are factory speakers though, what I would do is replace them with higher and speakers but make sure they are the same size and form factor of the originals otherwise it can make installing on much bigger project. You should be able to find adapters that will make them fit like the OEM speakers. For volume, and raw power, I would add an amp and then wire the speakers from the amp. A subwoofer would add the base and that does make a huge difference. If that price includes the radio it will be tight but you can do it if you aren't planning on buying top-end stuff. But you really don't need top-end stuff to do which are doing it's a small space that you have to fill with sound so you really don't need to drive a huge amount of power to make it sound good.
