I would search the threads by the following forum members that have done their or fully participated in their respective upgrades:
MOOSEHEAD, SUBBIE09, RAGEOFFURY AND VOYAGERX just to name a few.
In terms of your budget, it depends if you want to keep the surround sound system. For example, the JL Audio Stealthbox, amp and the wiring kit will run over $1K. Then depending on your level of sound quality, speakers can get pricy and that will require quality amps, plus additional processing. You can very quickly spend over $3,500 to $5,000.00 with this route of an upgrade.
However, if your sound quality requirements is not that extensive and you prefer the traditional front, rear and sub approach, you can make it with your budget. As a recommendation with regards to the amps, look for Class D, they are efficient on the JGC electrical system.
Best for now.
