I just bought my first car about a month ago, and just got my license yesterday (I am 20, pretty embarrassing). I like music a lot, and would like to increase the quality and volume of the music I hear in my car. My car (1996 Saturn sl2) came with stock speakers and stereo, which I have done my best to upgrade with the budget I have.
First, I purchased a Pioneer stereo for $65 at Best Buy
Pioneer - 50W x 4 MOSFET In-Dash CD Deck
Model: DEH-150MP SKU: 6238551
50 watts maximum power x 4 channels (14 watts RMS)
I have it installed in my car and have been listening to it for a few weeks now. My next door neighbor was strapped for cash and sold me some of his car speakers for 25$ (Even if I didnt need them I would have bought them. He is a nice guy)
Sony XS-R1641 6-1/2" 4-way Speakers
Peak: 220 watts , RMS: 45 watts
1-5/8" Midrange Balance Dome
4 ohms impedance
I replaced my front two (door) stock speakers with these Sony speakers. They sound pretty good for what they cost, in my opinion.
I can get my cheap car pretty loud before I start noticing distortion from the front two speakers. My back speakers are pretty crappy, and are very annoying when music with heavy bass is on.
(I would also like to increase my bass capabilities if possible)
I was planning on buying some replacement rear speakers for my car (do not plan on spending more than 30$ on ebay for them). Then I realized that Amps on ebay are only 12-30$.
I do understand that I may sound dumb for trying to spend such a small amount of money on something that should require more, so I do apologize.
Originally, I was just going to ONLY replace the back speakers so they wont sound so bad when having my music up, but decided I would like my front speakers a bit louder and clearer as well. Would anyone mind helping me to understand what exactly I should do? (also please explain why)
Overall, I do not want to spend more than 60$ on the amp + rear speakers.
