    Two 80rms speakers or Four 40rms speakers?

    Hi, i have 4(40rms) pioneer coaxial speakers. Two of them have 150Watts and other 240Watts as peak power but i guess since rms power of all 4 are the same then they are kinda equal. Do u think using two 80rms speakers will give better results? The four speakers are fixed in the back of the car next to each others, no place to split them between back and front or doors....also i am usinf the factory built in front speakers, they are sooooooo small there is a gap in my car sound, i can only hear music coming from behind although i have tweeters in my doors but also i cant hear them well.what do u think guys. Thx a lot

    I'd go with a single amped component set than a bunch of coaxials.

    btw, just because one set is 40w x4, or 80x x2, doesnt mean the speakers will perform the same.

    Power does not determine how good a speaker is. Can you show us what speakers you are looking at?
