View Full Version : Head Unit Power

Can ne1 recommend some 6.5 componets that would run nicely off of head unit power, or should I just forget this idea and get an external amp. I don't really want to spend alot of money 80$ and less.

I wouldn't sugguest components with a HU's power. HU might do 16 - 20 watts RMS. For $80, you could get a set of coaxials that would undoubtedly sound better than an $80 set of components.

If I have to get another amp I will, but I was just gonna see if there was nething that I could run off head unit power first. I have all around factory and I can't even hear the words when I turn it up, so I have to do something real soon.

As mentioned; external amp or not, your $80 will likely be better spent on a good quality co-axial rather than a cheap-o component set.
