Well for speakers I prefer using outsiders.

I'd use a single of those @ 325$ :

With a few of those @ 199$ per set :

Thats a descent setup, but you need to get rid of that Jensen head unit. You can find better things at a better price. If looking for a head unit with tv look towards the pioneer or Clarion head units. Your gonna have problems with the Jensen after a little while.

I would strongly advice against using that deck!! Two weeks ago I bought one, and within ONE week of owning it, it: Stopped reading MP3 CD's, the right toggle knob popped off, the DVD screen would not fully engage. Again that was within ONE week of purchasing this deck brand new. It also doesnt have much of a sound processing set up. If you are running any sort of high end midrange/tweeters on your system, it will process it to sound like hot garbage. Anyways, Luckily the store I bought it at did a full return on it. Just my two cents!!!! The best head unit would be either the Kenwood, or the eclipse double DIN DVD system. They have a better picture then the flip out screens. The flip out screens have a glare on them and the picture isnt as rich. But the downside on that is you lose half an inch of size. Lemme know what you end up getting, and good luck!!!
