Speaker Upgrade

390 6
I'm not sure this is the right forum, but I didn't see one specifically for stereo's.
Hello all. Just wanted to pose a question to all the knowledgeable stereo guys out there. I’m looking at doing a few upgrades to my 2008 Shelby GT500 with the Shaker 500 system. I’m looking for suggestions for the 5x7’s (6x8’s) for the door and rear deck.
I’ve already decided that I’m going with the:

Pioneer MVH-S622BS head unit.
Continuous Power Output = 22 W x 4-Channel
Load Impedence Allowance = 4 Ohm (4 Ohm to 8 Ohm Allowable)
Max Power Output = 50 W x 4-ch 4 ohm / 50 W x 2-ch 4 ohm + 70 W X 1-ch (subwoofer) 2 Ohm
RCA Preamp Outputs = 6-ch
RCA Preout Voltage = 4V
RMS Power Output (CTA-2006) = 14 W RMS x 4-ch 4 ohm

Shelby Kicker 8-in Sub in the front doors.
Long throw, poly cone design with a 20hz to 200hz frequency response. (Sticking with the factory amp for now, but will be upgrading to a another amp later).

Just looking for suggestions. I’m not trying to build a monster system. I took the door panels off to have the sagging insert fixed and I had been hearing some crackling in the front driver side speaker. So, I figured while I had the panels off, I would go ahead and do something about that speaker. I’ve called Crutchfield, but they’re suggesting a set of Focal speakers, but I’m not trying to break the bank. Just looking for a decent set of speakers that will give me a little better sound than the stock speakers. Any advise or suggestions would be appreciated.

wouldn't a 2008 head unit have all the vehicle sounds thru it?
my 09 gmc has all warnings, blinkers, seatbelt, etc thru the head unit.
it's getting hard to swap head units in most vehicles
luckily oem is putting better head units in vehicles
