    sound quality vastly improved??? by adding a component kit with crossovers?

    I own a mk 5 5dr astra 1.9cdti 2005, its fitted out with the following
    jvc kw-7000bt 7inch satnav dvd headunit,
    alpine dvb freeview tv,
    vibe amp 300watts with vibe 6x9 rear parcel speakers.

    sound quality is great but when i sit in my friends bmw which has a bose
    sound system it sounds alot better than my astra and i was wondering
    if i added a components kit to my front door speakers with crossovers
    would make a vast differance to the sound quality.
    some advice would be greatly appreciated from anyone who has expert knowledge on how any further improvements could be made. thanks

    Add a decent set of components & some sound deadening to the doors & your Astra will sound better than your mates BMW.

    Decent amp'd component up front and ditch the 6x9's for a sub. Should sound much much better.
