I've decided to keep the Alpine speakers that came in the car. They are a tremendous improvement over the speakers I had in the Lotus Elise (the new ones are custom made for the Exige by Alpine). They really don't need to be replaced.
I'm still replacing the head unit with the JVC KD-NX5000, so I will have a back up camera screen (I'll be using a Boyo license plate camera), navigation, iPod, Bluetooth, and possibly Sirius Satellite (though likely not, since I would have to place an antenna on the dash), among other built in features such as preamplifier outputs, which will be needed to send the audio signals to the Alpine PDX-5 amplifier, PEQ, EQ, etc...
I also plan on adding that JL Audio Stealthbox (sub) in the footwell of the passenger side.
I was on Griot's Garage for the last hour and a half putting together a $1000+ cart of car detailing supplies (including an orbital to machine clay, polish and wax the vehicle). I never detailed the Elise, and some of my friends were always hassling me about it. The car was always dirty...
