Aftermarket speakers are typically built to handle MUCH more power than factory ones, and also end up requiring more power to sound good than an OEM set.

Very rarely does switching to aftermarket speakers on stock power improve sound quality overall nowdays. Especially not in a stereo that is as optimized as the Alpine setup in the Jeep. You're going to need to up the power levels if you want to see a real increase.
The stock speakers are only 15W. Pathetic for 6x9 / 6-1/2 sized speakers. I did a complete overhaul of the sound system. New speakers throughout, amp, new headunit, etc.

I've already replaced the center dash speaker, and that helped some -- because a lot of sounds seems to come from the front.
Can you please provide any more info on how you replaced the dash speaker? Was it through the top? Which speaker did you choose?

Thanks!
