2 questions for the audio gurus here, real simple
1. Is it not a waste to buy a set of higher end coaxials/components for your car if you only plan on running them off your HU power?
2. When buying a set of speakers and an amp to match them, are we supposed to undershoot the speaker RMS power...meet dead on (I.E 50 RMS speaker to 50RMS max channel amp?).... or slightly overshoot the speakers RMS rating?
I see so many threads where the OP asks the question "what speakers should I get" or "suggest a speaker in X size" and they don't relay proper info, such as if they are amping them or not.
Or worse yet, the OP will say up front, he's just replacing a set of speakers and he is only running it off of HU power, and people will be suggesting 100 RMS speakers, or 200-300$ sets of components, etc... that are meant to handle 75 RMS, etc... Isn't that a waste of speaker?
