Speaker upgrade

I'm after some better speakers for the GTX. After fitting a new head unit I did notice an improvement, but they still sound rather poor.

I'm pretty sure* the fronts are 6" and the rears are 4" on the estate.
One option is to find the JBL system from an executive - which I did to find it sounded no different - or look on Amazon for some Pioneer 3 way coaxial which I bought for my van, I'm quite happy with the price and sound but I'm no expert - as long as it drowns out engine/kids/wife/other cars horns then I'm good.
