Looking to replace the door speakers in my Honda s2000. I will not be hooking the components up to an amp. I have a Pioneer DEH-P880PRS.

so if there are certain speakers that perform just off headunit power, please do tell. :)

Just remember eventhough your not amping them, an amp is what gets the most out of components

But for under $150

Check out the Phoenix Gold RSDs, good comps for only 129!

Also consider, Polk, Infinity, MB Quart

I like the PGrsd sets FTW. Check ebay you can get them for about 95 shipped.

There are some reviews out there that say the midbass on the RSd set is absolutely killer.... but that's on an amp with arout 120+ wrms per channel.

You can get them at onlinecarstereo.com (they are an authorized PG dealer) for $129 shipped.

amps are what brings out the best in components

components are really worth getting if your not going to amp them!

i have never heard the RSD I have heard the polks tho and they do sound very good themselves. but once again without an amp attached you prob wont tell a difference between a set of coaxis and a set of comps

Seems like one of those Brooklyn based scammer sites with all the cameras and other products listed. I wouldn't trust it (http://reviews.pricegrabber.com/a-savings/u/1924037/).

not sure what you are looking at but in my case I started looking for good coax, then I move to comps in the 150 range, for that range new Alpine's type R (SPR-17S) are really good, gread bass response and good highs, x-over comes with a 7 level tweeter attenuation in case you find them harsh, but I'm sure you wouldn't. You can find them around $120-130 shipped from e-bay or around $140-150 onlinecarstereo, sonicelectronix or techronics.
I'm personally saving more $ to move to some Rainbows, CDT's or 720PRS, still don't have my choice (looking at) but if I were in that range I will take R's as one of my options.
