what's a lot of money? I would suggest the infinity basslink for about 200$ and gives a nice complement to your stock speakers.

Do you have an aftermarket deck? If not you should go with that. When I put my pioneer in it brought my stock speakers to life.

I've never listened to svt speakers but since they are 2-way speakers, assuming you get upgraded ones, I imagine they produce about the same bass output but also play the higher frequencies a little better.

If you found a stock sub from the premium sound system that would boost your bass. Goons have to hunt one down on the BST forum though. Those can usually be had fairly cheap ~100$ is what I've seen them go for.
