I'm looking to put some Infinity Kappa speakers in my 06 Dodge megacab truck. The 6x9 three way 693.71 in front and the 6-1/2 60.7 CS in the rear. I have a Pioneer premier DEH-P590IB deck that puts out 50 watts a channel. I like the way these speakers sound, is this enough power if your not looking to blast them, just some better sound quality?

I'm also looking to use these on a motorcycle fairing setup (just the 6x9's). On that I think I will need some kind of amp. Any reccomendations, marine grade, small.

If you think they sound good the way they are, why would you need more power? You'll probably find more advantages in sound deadening your doors. Also you deck only puts out about 20 watts rms ;)

Real power is 22w a channel.

Has anyone bought these through discount jungle(amazon)? I can get both sets for $179.00.

Real power is 22w a channel. At 5% THD. ;)

I'd recommend an amp.. even if it's something small like 2x50w rms, as those are 2 ohm comps and you are probably putting a lot of stress on the HU's internal amps. You can safely send them in the neighborhood of a clean 2x125w rms.
