    I wouldn't use an external amplifier on them if those are the only speakers you plan on using. Not worth the monetary investment.

    However, if you are going to upgrade speakers in the near future to something from the aftermarket, there is nothing inherently wrong with amplifying stock speakers in the short term. Hell, I used an amp w/ my stock tweeters for a while

    Re: Stock speakers in 01 ranger worth amplifying?

    I ran my old Soundstream Rubicon amp on my stock Mitsubishi speakers. They sounded way better. It was a very noticable improvment.

    But I had the Infinity OEM system in there...

    You want some Pioneer 6x8's that are more worthy of amplification? I'll give you 4 of them for like $60 shipped. Get back at me via PM and I can get you pictures and the likes.
