Default Santro Xing XL - car audio advice needed...

Hello Guys,
I have read a lot of posts about Santro Xing car audio, now I need your opinion or advice.

My Dad owns a Santro XL (bought is 2006).
The audio sucks (came with dealer installed HU and speakers, I am not sure if there are rear speakers or not).

I am going to India (from US) and am planning to gift a decent car audio system, nothing hifi.

I have decided on the following (and I am almost buying them because I am getting a good deal on them).

HU: Pioneer DEHP2900MP CD/MP3/WMA/WAVBuy the Pioneer In-Dash Player and other Car Stereos at circuitcity.com
Front:[COLOR=black][/COLOR][COLOR=#666666]Kenwood KFC-1061S 4" 3-Way Triaxial Car Speakers[/COLOR]Kenwood KFC-1061S 4" 3-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com
Rear:[COLOR=#666666] Kenwood KFC-1361S 5.25" 3-Way Triaxial Car Speakers[/COLOR]Kenwood KFC-1361S 5-1/4" 3-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com

Questions:
Do these fit in?
Do they sound decent?
Any other suggestions?

Thanks
SR

WHy not get a HU from the US and get the speakers locally. For 6-8K you can get 2 pairs of JBL GT5 series here. There are better speakers than Kenwood.

thanks Navin. I would keep that in mind.

My doubt was am I buying the right ones (speaker sizes) that would fit into the car?
