    distorted sound when turned up

    I have a scdbta60 scosche radio it is a nice radio with bluetooth phone calling and such. I like the radio a lot but im not a big radio Ive always had fast vehicles with a decent radio well here lately Ive wanted better sound quality not like thousand dollar system quality but nice clear quality and i may add a small sub later on but right now i hear a distortion when my radio is turned up especially a song with any bass.

    "Sound Output Mode: Stereo
    Controls: Volume, treble, bass, fader, balance, loudness
    Max Output Power / Channel Qty: 40 Watts x 4
    Additional Features: Flip-down console, ID3 tags support, iPod/iPhone ready, smartphone remote controlled, built-in microphone
    Continuous Power / Channel Qty: 15 Watts x 4
    Amplifier Output Details: 15 Watt - 4 Ohm - THD 1.0% - 14.4V DC - 4 channel(s)

    that is my radio specs is that decent? seems like the watts may be low to me but i am unsure. I have the matching scosche speakers and the front "6.5" speakers get distorted with even the smallest amount of bass i keep the bass at -4 and it still happens sometimes. im wondering is it the radio or is it the speakers?

    Scosche 6.5" HD Series 3-Way Car Speaker:
    6" woofer
    250 Watts max (50 Watts RMS) per pair
    0.6" tweeter
    HD speakers

    front speakers^^^

    3-way 150 watts max (30 watts RMS)

    rear speakers^^^

    thanks in advance

    when I type "scosche 6.5" on google and hit the I'm Feeling Lucky button, it takes me to wal-mart. lol



    All day I'm clippin'
    voltage be dippin'
    I don't give a damn,
    cause my trunk always hittin'!

    creating a proper sound wave. Step one, turn it up until clipping. Step two, done.
