Rear speakers - Worth Changing?

Shaker 500 radio non-nav

I replaced the front speakers with some Focal's and it was a huge improvement. Are rear's worth changing or should I add amp next?

I am thinking about Focal's for the rears as well
Focal Access 570CA1 5"x7" 2-way car speakers at Crutchfield.com



Here is the amp I am considering

JL Audio XD700/5 5-channel car amplifier — 75 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms + 300 watts RMS x 1 at 2 ohms at Crutchfield.com

Thanks!

Seems like if you noticed better sound quality from the front speaker the rears should be improved as well.The amp is really up to you it's more time consuming to install and never as clean as the factory system.

I just recently upgraded the door speakers on my Shaker 500 with Focal IC 570's. They sound great!

I had previously upgraded them with Boston Acoustic S85's, and that was a nice improvement, but the Focal IC 570's are much better. I moved the S85's to the rear deck. Well, actually I had the shop do it all for me this time aournd because I didn't want to deal with pulling apart everything to do the rear deck speakers.

I swapped my rear speakers out with Infinity 6832cfs and it made a noticable difference --- I think it is a worthwhile investment.
