It all depends on your budget, really. A set of coax 6.5" speakers range from $19/pair(pyle) to $10,000/pair of rainbow cs360 component speakers(one pair of speakers.)
Most people who want an aftermarket stereo should usually aim for spending around $1000 if they want to replace all factory speakers and have a "decent" sounding stereo system. The sound system I have in pieces right now which consists of 2 amps, 1 headunit, and 2 sets of component speakers and a single nice 12" sub, and it roughly retails as is for around 11 grand.
Goto a professional audio store and ask their techs. Give them your expectations and listen to the equipment they have. Tell them your price range, and go from there. NOTHING can replace a properly built sound stage. You can make excellent speakers sound like shit, and vice versa.
