Default Help needed to figure out the current ICE and suggestions for improvement

Dear All,
I have recently bought a 2006 Ford Endeavour. The current ICE system comprises of a Pioneer HU (Dvh-P4190UB) and what I think are JBL component speakers. I have attached pictures of the same. The speakers are running off the HU at present. However, they sound woefully underpowered. Could anyone identify the speakers for me (I have attached pictures of the crossover)? I could not locate the same on the JBL website.

Also, I am thinking of getting an amp and a sub. I was previously using a Blaupunkt (MK-III i think) and a bull sub. Any suggestiongs within 8-10K would be appreciated.

Insofar as damping is concerned, do you think the endeavour needs damping??

Thanks.
MM

I think that's a JBL GTO 608C.
Set crossover jumper to -6db and amplify the setup. Damp the front doors as well.
You should be ok.

@nitrous i dont think those are the cross overs of 608C
i think they are from 607C, as 607c had the silver color thing on them but in 608C it was replaced with black.

if its 607C it has 0 and +3db selection which can be done by opening the cross-over cover.

@Jatin - Yup. They are 607C. How are they as speakers? Also since four of them are running off the HU, they sound kinda feeble (i need to crank the volume up to 30 to get it going)

@mysticmonkey
try tuning the sound from HU itself if it sill does not satify your requirements then add a 4channel amplifier.
