Question Upgrading my budget system [Help Wanted]

I've upgraded my system once already but, this is a post about upgrading the upgrades I already did. I upgraded my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it sounds nice but I'd like to get it to sound a lot nicer. I like my sub/amp setup and don't want to change anything about that and I also like the rear door speakers. I love my music loud and really want to get a solid system that can play just about any genre of music at louder volumes. I'm not sure exactly what direction to go in but I have a few options and want some advice.

Problem: Basically the Infinity Amp that comes stock with my Jeep powers all of the speakers in my car. The problem with this is that In Grand Cherokees equipped with the Infinity system, the front door speakers only receive bass frequencies. All of the mid and high frequencies go to the dash speakers. The front door speakers I have installed sound terrible, they are extremely quiet and obviously don't play the high notes and they also sound muffled. That is my main goal to fix,

So that said, I can either Option 1. bypass the infinity amp and have the speakers run to the head unit which would fix the problem

Option 2. I could replace the infinity amp with a new Amp and run all the speakers that way. I have an extra 4 channel amp laying around that I could use to do that and I think that would possibly improve the sound and loudness as well.

Option 3. Is also that I could buy a set of component speakers which I think would also be a great idea.

My last Option 4. Is that I could take the rear door speakers out and work on the front door speakers, I've posted on here before and read up that the front is more important. But I don't see why I would take the rear door speakers out since I already purchased them and have them installed.

I'm not sure exactly what the best Idea is and what speakers I would buy. I might get some hate but I do like the Kicker rear coax speakers I installed and I was thinking of buying a kicker component system. I just really want to get speakers that work for just about everything and are really loud.

Lastly I have a few questions about the affect of a head unit on sound quality and features. I have a very basic and cheap head unit and I've heard from members here about features such as "Time Alignment" And I was wondering if someone can explain it in depth and maybe point me to a simple head unit that would give me some nice sound quality and give me a feature like time alignment. I'm really just going for amazing sound, don't need all the bluetooth and phone connect features.

Parts I currently Have:
Head Unit: kenwood KMM-BT315U
Front Door: speakers: ****** old Pioneer Walmart speakers 6x9
Rear Door Speakers: Kicker 6-3/4" Coaxial speakers
Tweeters: Kenwood KFC-ST01
Sub Amp: Rockford Fosgate r500x1d Amp
Subs: Two 12" Pioneer TS-W304R Subs

Also have the stock Infinity Amp that powers all the speakers.

Help would be greatly appreciated and Thank you for your time!

IMO...for your door setup get a Arc Moto 600.4 amp (150 Watts x 4 channels @ 2 or 4 ohms) if you know where to buy them you can get one for $450-$500

HAT Unity 6x9 Mid bass speakers for the front
HAT Legatia L1V2 Tweeters
HAT Imagine 6.5" coaxial speakers for the rear

This speaker setup can be had for about $450.00

These speakers with that amp and your sub setup will blow you away
