You typically start with a HU. Most today will have an RMS power of 22 watts per channel. Peak power is useless to you for all intents and purposes. Providing additional power to your factory speakers from an aftermarket HU will give you some improvement.
Moving on from there, you typically upgrade your front speakers. Components are good because it separates the high frequencies with a small tweeter. Ideally, two way is best with a crossover, but it's a more difficult install since you now have a tweeter to locate higher up and a crossover box to wire and hide. The reason is because of the placement of the tweeter.
From there you can move on to the back speaker. Many will argue that it's not a worth while install because it's located in the door and not in the rear deck. It's a cheap upgrade if you're doing all this work anyway IMO.
For an amplifier, you want to adequately power your speakers without overloading them. You'll want a 4 channel amp unless you only plan on concentrating on only the front speakers. This is getting more advanced if you're doing the install yourself.
After that, you're looking into subs, sub boxes, and mono amps to power it/them.
I generalized everything, so please do your homework. This is just a rough guideline.
After a HU I think sub and amp is a better bang for your buck before upgrading interior speakers. The stock speakers are decent the factory HU is terrible. A sub will give u a full sound and improve speaker clarity by providing the bass.
