Replacing radio in my truck.

With me adding an aftermarket stereo is it going make my factory speakers sound horrible and should i invest in new speakers. Also adding a kicker tcvt12 with a 1000 watt 2 channel amp. Should have a little kick to it.

if your factory speakers are still good they will be fine.what I would do is put some inline Stinger bass blockers on them if u keep them and that way they are mid range only and it will sound just fine.
