Ok, I am on a budget and found these for replacing my door speakers, I will be running them off a Sony headunit 52wx4. Anyone have any first hand experience or complaints? The car I just bought has aftermarket no name speakers.

A small amp would be better than HU power

Your headunit doesn't put out 52x4, thats max rating, your really getting less than 20 a channel :)

If your not going to amp component speakers just get coaxials, and I would rather have the PG RSd comps, even a small amp would be better than HU power

Btw- your headunit doesn't put out 52x4, thats max rating, your really getting less than 20 a channel :)

Did you look at the links? Those are not component speakers, I didn't know the model number of my headunit thats why I refrenced the power from the head unit, :)

Havent heard them, but most coaxes do just fine off deck power...

Get a set of comps or good coaxs for the front and amp them with a Profile 400SX (http://www.profilecaraudio.com/amplifiers.htm). Leave the rear speakers alone and power them off the HU.

Sounds like a good idea

I have a pair of the 6.5" Ryval coax. I like them ok they are in the rear only powered off the headunit. Then I installed my PG RSD's in the front off of my external amp and can no longer hear the Ryvals.I think the Ryvals are decent entry level speakers but I now think rear fill is pointless (at least off HU power)
