I recently bought a used honda accord and replaced the factory stereo with a pioneer DEH-P4700MP. Now im looking to replace the factory speakers ( 6 1/2 in the front 6x9 in the rear ) so I've been going around and listening to as many different brands of speakers as I can. Im not looking for some all out system, right now Im cool with the stereo and some good speakers. But what Im finding is that some models have really high wattage ratings, and unless you are running an amp to the them, then you are kind of wasting your money, because you wont be useing their full potential. So those who have more experience in this area, from experience what are some of the brands to look at that will preform good just useing the rms power from the deck.
I also know this is very subjective and it's basically listen and go with what you like. And I have listened to ARC ( Liked em, plus they make em in my city ) , Alpine S ( R types sound great too but not sure how much I want to spend ) Sony ( surprised me ) JL audio, Fosgate ( again though I know you need an amp to take advantage of these ). Memphis ( heard them and the arc's at the same time liked the arc's more )
Want to hear, Audiobahn, Orion, but I need to find shop's around here that carry them.
Is there any other's I should be looking at, please keep in ming I want something above average but not top of the line. Also I was trying to stick with both speakers from the same company but should I also look at going with different company's.
Music played on them will mostely be rap hip/hop, but I listen to alot of classic rock, and some alternative.
Thanks in advance.
