Which factory head unit do you have? Why do you want to keep it? (OK but not great, and not a good match to an aftermarket amp).

You're much better off with an aftermarket head. I changed to an iPod-specific Alpine, oh so happy.

The only drawback is your personal opinion about the cosmetics. But the Alpine had orange lights, anyway

Ah, also, WHAT amp do you have? Do you have DSP? Premium Sound? Subwoofers? That makes a difference about changing stuff around. Somehow you do need a crossover if you change the amp, including to the mid and tweeter. Some years, those were pretty lousy, but tough to change out without big cosmetic work.
