View Full Version : non-amped coaxials

05-14-2005, 05:46 PM
Currently i have the stock speakers with a kenwood head unit.
my car is pretty loud to begin with (engine mods, exhaust, etc), and i have no air conditioning so i have the windows down quite often.
That leaves it hard to hear my speakers. The loudest my speakers can cleanly play is a volume of 20, (im not sure if the volume number is head unit specific), but id like to play them at 25-27.
would aftermarket coaxials be able to play clean at higher volume levels? or does that require an amp?

Maybe if they have a good eficiency. Other wise ur hu just wont be able to supply enough power to get em loud. IMO u could invest in a 2 channel amp then later down the raod if u get comps u can just use that to power them.

how would a 2 channel amp work with stock speakers? base model speakers, not even the infinity gold speakers (jeeps)

It would probably improve there sound (maybe) but they probably cant handle much power, so u might distort them more or even blow them.

from my personal experience I would say that you will see a bigger difference gettin both new speakers and a amp to power them. One thing I wouldnt suggest you do is get a amp first for your stock speakers because I doubt you will see much of a difference because they wont handle too much power. Well it all depends on what kind of stock speakers but I know with my ****** stock ones there was no BIG difference. I saw a really big difference when I changed the fronts for the comps. AND they are even good ones.
