View Full Version : 6.5" speakers to match cerwin vega sub

10-03-2006, 06:21 AM
I have a 12" cerwin vega sub powered by 300.1kicker amp and I want to upgrade the stock speakers. They are 6.5" and one of them is literally loose and hanging.

I want to run it off the stock head unit(volvo 1991) and use the original wires. I'm looking for a coaxial set of speakers that are very responsive to low power. I was thinking about the polk dbs, but it seems that they will probably need a nice amp to push them. Budget is under $100 but that should be enough for a low powered 6.5 coaxial set right? THANKS.

don't do it, stock hu = about 5-10 rms...... =distortion at low levels, crappy sound and destroyed speakers... i would save up and get a decent amp.... or you can always get the david navone mini amp for $40 and get cheap coaxials for $60

Agreed. I would never run any speakers with HU power. You could get away with it if they are sensitive and low power speakers, bu it still won't sound as good. Just get an amp and get some good speakers.

There are some very cheap amps out there.
