Good replacement speakers for f350

Didn't really see a better place to post this so here goes. I've got a f350 XLT with factory speakers that sound just plain cheap. Does anyone have a suggestion as to a good set of replacement speakers. I don't want mega bass thumpers or anything crazy just a decent set of speakers. Thanks.

I have seen jvc replacements before......never tried them though.
I would imagine any good company will have 6/8 speakers

I think the limiting factor for the factory stereo system in the radio itself. My neighbor had a Kenwood deck put in his '08, and his is MUCH louder and better sounding than mine is with the stock deck

I had an oem 05 excursion that had the single disk cd with tape deck head unit. The sound in that truck was pretty darn good. Without running out to the driveway, the new truck has a single disk cd player. Are the output specs that much different on these two head units?

I have no clue what the OEM deck puts out for wattage, but the neighbors is 45w times 4

The OE Ford decks do 20 watts per speaker. Not sure if that is peak or RMS. Most aftermarkets do 45 or 50 peak but have a much lower RMS. Usually somewhere around 20 watts. My Alpine is 22w RMS. Too get better sound you need more RMS power which is why factory speakers can sound a lot better with an aftermarket deck.
