I am looking at possibly upgrading my door speakers in my 04 F150 Supercrew and looking for some insite. Currently I have a aftermarket HU with 50W X 4 output and a mono 150W amp powering a 10" kicker sub.
First, will I notice a big difference in sound quality between stock door speakers and replacing them?
Also, would you recommend replacing my stock 6 X 8's with aftermarket 6 X 8's in all doors or just doing aftermarket 6 X 8's in the rear and a component system in the front doors?
I am looking not to spend more than $400 no matter which option I go with. With that any recommendations of speakers are also welcome. If it helps I mainly listen to Country music. Thanks in advance for you replies.

Yes you will notice a difference, i would do components in the front and the rear but thats just me...even though the hu says 50wx4 you are maybe getting 15 watts at most, you will notice a difference but to get the most out of them a amp is a must

The biggest Difference is that the stock speakers don't actually have a real tweeter on them. They have a little cone in the center called a whizzer cone that does a **** poor job. Any after market speaker will have real tweeters on them.
If I were you I would do 6.5 inch comps. Just use a drimmel to make them fit and fabricate some adapters out of mdf. That's what I did, I got a piece from home depot for like $10 and made mine. Took a day to complete everything, including making the adapters, making them fit, and wiring up the speakers.
