Default '06 Impreza 2.5i Audio Upgrade thoughts?

OK, I've gone and bought another Subaru, this time for my Mom. This one is a '06 Impreza 2.5i sedan with the lovely base single DIN AM/FM/CD system and 4 whimpy speakers.

My Mom is not looking to win any SPL contests, nor will it be played loudly at all-- but man this system is weak as-is. I'm looking to upgrade it somewhat, all on a cheapskate's budget.

I'd like to keep the stock headunit if possible, mostly because it's Mom-proof and it works OK. When I had my '02 WRX, I spent the $ to do the factory audio upgrades available at the time- the better speakers, the tweeter kit and the subwoofer.

It would appear that the base audio doesn't have the output for the subwoofer like the upgraded CD-changer double-DIN HU has. I'm OK with that.

But-- is it worth the $70 or so to replace the OEM paper speakers with the factory upgraded ones? And can I also utilize the tweeter kit with the base HU? Or should I look around for that double DIN HU and start from there?

Remember, this is for my Mom - not for me (I'd have it all torn out by now if it was mine), and I'm looking to keep the total spend here for improved audio quality for $200-ish or so.

Thoughts/comments appreciated!
