Well helping my wife's cousin out with a stereo install. wrecked last car, they pulled stereo out. Circuit city wants arm and leg for re install so i agreed to do it for her.

Here's what it will be. hyundai accent (small car)

JVC head unit,

rear 6.5s (kenwood)
dual 10s with amp (MTX) in trunk, plenty of bass.

Front stage is my question.
No money here for amps. so stock 18 watts RMS or whatever the HU has to speakers mounted bottom of door.

4x6 polk DBs is what she has, I know I can likely make them fit...calls for 5.25s

vs. blaupunkt, hifonics zeus, or PG ryval 5.25 comps (about 60$ each, max willing to spend on this), with tweeter at window level...

Let me know your opinions...

why not look into the PG RSD's just a tad more but a lot better quality

i know, but would stock HU power be enough for RSDs? I understand they are a little power hungry...

Any other input on this?

I love components for imaging, but worried about the power of an aftermarket jvc headunit only to power them...vs 4x6 polk DBs decent speakers, but close to floor. At least it's a small car, hyundai accent...
