Exclamation ICE for Chevrolet Optra 1.6 ELITE

Hello people.
I am planning to ice up my car for long, and before i did anything i wanted to
ask for suggestions from all the audio gurus out here.
the audio configuration as of now is-
1. Delphi grundig HU instead of stock HU(dont know if u have heard the name, me neither, my brother got it changed)
2.Rest stock.
I want to know about the basic mods i can do as i am on a tight budget.
I dont want to make this A BASS MACHINE ( which i want to do with my linea)
I just want nice speakers as i guess the stock speakers phat gaye hain.
So please tell me which speakers should i buy for either front / rear or both.
And if i need to buy an amplifier.
And if i will be needing any damping.
Please guys help this newbie out!

um.... I guess roughly Rs.15000.
Dont want to change the HU as i guess it has got both USB and sd facility.
But still am open to ideas!

You can get a 2 channel amp like the JBL S422, a 12" Subwoofer, with a MDF box , wiring for the amp along with JBL GT5 S265C components for around 16k with installation. That should change things a lot, the reason why I am suggesting JBL as you will get better product support as you don't live in a metro city.
The above config will work as long as your player has at least 1 RC preout.
You can also look at buying a 4channel S644 amp instead of the 2 channel to power your components, this will give more balance to the audio setup and at the same time will cost you a total of around 19k
