I know a guy who is seelin a set of boston pro 4.5's. What do you guys think they are worth? And I dont have an amplifier for them right now, Will they be alright on deck power for a while? And wiil they sound better than the type S coaxials I have now?

As for what they are worth......about a year ago I sold a mint condition (but used) pair of Pro 6.5 components for like $250. So...I would say about $150-175 for the 4.5 if the are very, very good condition.

I agree with squeak on the price range.

Will they sound better than your Type S's? Well, listen to the Bostons before you purchase them and see for yourself ;) They'll wprk on head unit power for now, but I definitely suggest amping them as soon as money allows.

unfortunetally they are not installed. So I cant actually listen to them. And I dont know of anyone in my area that have them, So I am baseing my decision Based on your guys feedback.

Well, FWIW I really like my Pro 6.5 comp set. Very detailed. Hard to say what your personal preference is, but it would *probably* sound better than most co-axials. The Pro's would really come alive with an external amp though, my Pro6.5's LOVED power (I had a 800w+ amp to them :) )

Eh I have the 6.53s and if I remember correctly they all run at 3 ohms, which means that it most likely would not be stable to run it off the headunit.
