How could we guess, knowing NOTHING about the truck you're talking about? Click these & read the captions:

So reg cab is the two seat with a small space behind the seat ? IS your screen the small 4.3 ? I would venture to say add a sub, and upgrade the speakers in the doors to start. Also I guess the other speakers are in the pillar behind you ? It's been a while....My ranger was sort of that way. But any any rate, start there. Maybe add a amp as well.

New reg. cabs do not have the speakers in the pillars, unlike the previous gen. My 2009 reg. cab had a pretty good-sounding stereo (and a line-in jack, but no USB) where my '16 lacks the rear speakers and sounds terrible. It isn't much more than a "car radio" circa 1974. Note* XLT, stock.

I discovered this the day that the new truck was delivered to me at the dealer, going through the audio controls with the salesperson, and no "fader" - because no speakers.

You only need rear speakers (not the sub) if you have rear passengers.
