it's not the speaker that makes the system loud, it's the amplifier. you'll need to upgrade both if you want a loud system. upgrading the speakers will only make it sound better, but it won't be any louder.

all of it. Speakers OHM load and the Power output of the channels will determine the "loudness" of the speaker. since its a 12v system not many "systems" will be louder than the other when just replacing the factory speakers or radio. Youll need a Headunit with a low voltage preouts to a 4-5 channel amplifier depending on the amount of speakers you want to use. a 9 speaker system more than likely has Amps on each speaker and will probably differ by location of the speaker. Since they are 6.5"s i beliebe id say 40watts per speaker... the entire systems is 368 watts divided by the 9 speakers. being one is a sub id say 35watts each (which is common in cars) and the sub is probably 88watts which is pretty weak. But for a factory system thats not bad at all.

Youll need to replace the wiring, speakers, amps, and headunit to achieve the sound stage youre looking for.

when buying speakers companies are guilty of misleading the consumer...most advertise peak wattage...this is not the true power of a speaker!! look for RMS wattage...if the packaging of a speaker only shows peak wattage or peak power or only shows just a wattage number then you can take roughly 70% of that number to be your true wattage...also...look for the SPL rating of a speaker...this is a speakers sensitivity rating...if a speaker says 88 dB at 1 watt....or 98 dB at 1 watt or what ever number at 1 watt..the higher the number the more sensitive the speaker is...in other words a speaker with a rating of 98 dB at 1 watt will be louder then a speaker that has a SPL rating of 88 dB at 1 watt..thats 2 speakers of the same wattage but 1 with a higher SPL rating..this is a good reason to stick to one brand of speaker in a set up..different speakers have different SPL ratings....so look for high SPL ratings as well as RMS wattage for the best overall speaker...if you want a little reason behide RMS wattage and Peak Wattage...music has ups and downs, it is never constant at one volume..i.e. a big drum roll or build up in a song....music has peaks and vallys...so a speaker with a RMS wattage of say 50 watts has to be able to handle some peak wattages...so that same speaker would have a peak wattage of around 70 watts...the company lie would come because most companies will advertise that speaker at 70 watts, when really it is 50 watts...makes you think your getting more then you really are...anyway..that said most reputable speaker companies now advertise in RMS wattage...hope this helps
