I have a Kenwood KDC-X890 deck. I'm looking at running some K2's and I want to know if I need to run an amp with them or just if I add a sub later on. Total beer budget here, piece by piece.

They would sound a lot better with a sub and amps. With radio power, they might sound a little clearer than the factory speakers, but you are not going to say wow.

you can run the door speakers off the HU. with an amp they'll get louder and sound better.

Don't even bother running the K2's w/o an amp!

Keep your stock speakers in there till you can afford the amp because they'll sound worse then your stock system w/o an amp.
