Did you just say you're going to power them on your HU? I'd recommend some...random *** **** in that case. Read: don't bother spending money on good 6.5 components if you can't afford to amplify them properly.

Totally agree. I have some decent sounding 6.5" speakers that I could let go. Pm me about them if your interested.

if they are just running off the HU, you probably aren't going to get the sound you want. i don't think it's worth it to pay a lot of money for speakers that you aren't going to amp. i would just get whatever is cheap.

As mentioned by pat and darren... Point is, nobody makes "good sounding 6.5's" that can run off of HU power and be classified that way. 6.5" components do not receive enough power from any HU i've ever seen to actually sound 'good'. Sure, they'll sound...they just won't sound good. Most HU's can push...15, maybe 20 watts RMS at their bleeding edge. 15 watts is pathetic for a 6.5" component set. My 1" tweeters alone likely pull more than 10-15w. It's a great way see how badly you can push the HU into clipping at least...

money really isnt an option , yes i know the head doesnt put out much, what i do is turn back s down , crank head till fronts distort, back off a little , then turn gain up on amp for backs................i just want em to last a while ...........

if money is not a option? why dont you buy an amp for your front components.

Anything will last a while if you don't throw such a clipped signal to the speakers. You would be better off either A) buying an amp,spending time reading about speakers via this forum and others alike, then make a wise speaker choice which will out perform what you have now in every way(expect for distortion) B) buy some cheaper used speakers, don't blare you music at full volume or even close and you won't run into them blowing.

im sure i over do it, i dont have room for an amp to be honest, its my work car and its full of tools and such..............the pioneer rev ts-d161r look nice

You should make the amp driving the rears drive the new fronts, then run rears on HU power, or take them out all together.

Best to have a "front stage".

I've heard good things on the Pioneer REVs. Good choice.

honestly if you're not amping them i'd just go with some 2 way pioneer coax's.. they dont even need to be rev's
