    Icon32 Good sounding speakers running off the deck only?

    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.

    Try looking for some speakers with higher sensitivity (>90dB at least) since you are going to just be using the ~20watts off the HU.

    JVC coaxials will respond well off deck power and are very affordable.

    ^X2, listen to some. I bought a pair off cardomain (2004 "bronzies") and really liked them off a DEH1400 (Bottom line Pioneer)

    Is that all Audiobahn, or just the coaxials and 6x9s? I thought a lot of people here ran the subs.

    I would externally amplify whatever you end up with.

    It really makes a night and day difference.

    Re: Good sounding speakers running off the deck only?

    if you dont have plans to use an external amp any time in the future, i would stick to a set of coaxials
    when i had my components running off of my HU, it just didnt get all that loud
    just listen to as many as you can and see what your ear likes the best

    Definately go coaxial. Don't expect any bass or much middbass.

    hpf set at around 120 - 160. or EQ the Midbass/bass down to -7 (or how ever low yer **** goes)

    that **** will get loud without distorting. But your going to be missing a lot...

    @Everybody who responded, Thanks.

    In the future at some point I will add an amp, right now its more or less a money issue. I dont mind spending a little bit more money to get something, but as always bills come 1st, and I have a couple I have to take care of first. Just wanted to find something that sounded good off the HU for the time being.

    Re: Good sounding speakers running off the deck only?

    Just use stock speakers untill you can afford something that will actually make a relatively big difference (i.e. comps and an amp). Getting new speakers off HU power isn't worth it IMO

    Re: Good sounding speakers running off the deck only?

    I have to comment on the Type S Alpines, my brother bought some but ended up not being able to use them so I installed them in my car for a while until I upgraded to comps and an ext. amp. But they sounded great off of deck power and I highly recommend them for the price.
