    Recently bought an 09 Corolla and regrettably didn't get the upgraded JBL system. I currently have a 4 speaker system with 6.5" in the front doors and 6x9's in the back.

    I am having trouble finding any head unit I like (nothing really matches the interior of the car). I'd like to upgrade the speakers and get an amp. Will this work okay even if I am using the factory head unit?

    Any suggestions for speakers and/or amp? I would like to spend no more than like 250-300$ for everything. Does this sound reasonable?

    LOC. Or, something like JL's clean sweep will let you use the factory deck and still get good sound.

    Is that necessary if I am upgrading the speakers and putting in a new amp?

    If you want a new amp, you will need at least an LOC or find an amp with high level in. Depending on how it sounds with just an LOC will depend on the unit. Older units used to have a lot of bass attenuation and over all werent that clean. Newer units may not have this problem. If it seems like that is the case you can get something like the clean sweep. JL isnt the only one who makes such a device.
