How should I choose new car speakers?

I finally have a solid chunk of savings, and I want to upgrade the speakers in my car. There's a lot of options, so how do I choose?

“Great question, and congrats on your savings! When looking for new speakers, you’ll first want to think about your budget. The cost of speakers vary, ranging from under $100 to over $1,000. Knowing your budget beforehand can help narrow your search and ensure you’re getting the best product for your budget.
Once you know your cost, you’ll want to research and test your options. There are plenty of resources online that review car speakers and parts. You may also want to reach out to a local audio store or car shop to see what their recommendations are. From there, you’ll need to test your options.
Since the entire point of upgrading your speakers is to improve the sound quality, you want to be sure you like the way they sound! Before buying, you should have the option to try them out. Make sure you test them with whatever you normally listen to in your car. If you always listen to rock, don’t play classical music to test the sound quality.
If you find something you like and it’s within your price range, congratulations! You’re ready to install new speakers in your car.
If you decide to go all-out, it can be wise to save in other areas.
