Default Aftermarket speakers

So I have a 2004 Honda civic ex Coupe that I recently swapped the radio out on. I have now a Kenwood Excelon DPX793BH and I want to swap out the factory speakers because frankly, they suck. I dont want to spend all this money on speakers for them not to work either so any suggestions would be great. (First time with a speaker swap be nice)

Yeah, the speakers suck. I kept the headunit, but swapped the door speakers with 3-way Pioneers. Bit of work to make them fit clearance-wise. Sounds better to me and that was all I was willing to upgrade with the audio on this car.

Oh and I did get an AUX cord for smartphones that plugs into the CD Changer port in the back of the factory unit.

what wattage did you stick with when swapping them and did you swap the tweeters if you had any

Best buy has inexpensive speakers. Kenwood KFC-1666R. if you look online though the weekly ads for your nearby location, you'll find them. I bought mine for $20. Are they the greatest? No, but its a whole lot better than stock, or in my case not having any at all (blown). Luckily i have the LX special edition with the double din unit that has the aux.
