I have an amp that puts out 50W and was wondering what are some good comps to get with that little power since I don't want to change the amp. I'm kind of poor so I don't want to spend more than $100. Thanks.

What impedance does it output 50 Watts?

If you can find them, you can get some Hypnotic HV5 Components, they're rated for 60WRMS, but I'm sure 50WRMS would be great for them. I got mine for $26 shipped off of eBay. I'm poor too, so I have no amp, just head unit power going to them, and they get pretty loud off of just 22 WRMS. They usually go for a lot more, but if you watch eBay for a while, you may be able to find some. $26 is just a 1/4 of what dealers cost is, so don't think about going to a local dealer or anything.

You could go with some Hifonics comps, they're rated higher than 50WRMS, but they'd still get decently loud, and still sound great.

These Cadence components are great! I owned a pair, never had them in a car, but I did install them in a HT setup.

These are suppose to be good, but I have no experience with them.

Kicker is always a great choice for anything car audio. ;)

You dont necessarily need a low powerhandling set of speakers, you need one with high efficiency/sensitivity to get the most return from your wattage.

Good point...

6.5" under $100, I'd go for the Hifonics components I had mentioned, they have a pretty good sensitivity, and look **** good.

Or for a little more...

I know they're not components, but they're still excellent speakers all around, and you get 2 sets, a 6.5" set, and a 5.25" set.

93 is probably about the highest you are going to find....

Maybe if you did some serious searching you could find some more but that is pretty sensitive.

I think I'm down to two choices from Phoenix Gold (from what I heard, they make good products).

Phoenix Gold Ryval 6.5 or Phoenix Gold R6.5
