    Speakers off Head Unit Power

    I am looking to get my Dad some new speakers for his car for Father's Day.
    He has a 1999 Silverado Extended Cab.
    There are 6.5" speakers in the front and 4"x6" speakers in the back.
    Since he will be running the speakers off head unit power i decided to stick with coaxials.
    I'm just looking for some suggestions on which coaxials would run decent with only the head unit's power.

    Budget: under $300 for all 4 speakers



    Car: 2000 Toyota 4Runner
    Alarm: Viper 5900 (Many accessories)
    Tint: Double 5% all around; Windshield 30%
    Head unit: Kenwood eXcelon DNX8120
    Components: Boston Acoustic Z6's
    Components Amp: Kicker zx850.4
    Subwoofers: (2) 15" FI BL's
    Subwoofers Amps: (2) Kicker zx1500.1's
    Wiring: Knuconceptz (4 Runs of 0/1, (2 pos, 2 neg)
    Sound Deadening: Raamat (125 sq ft)

    Re: Speakers off Head Unit Power

    How about this?

    Ditch the rears (or continue to run what's in there off the HU).

    FRONTS:
    PG RSd65cs $129

    SUB:
    8" Kicker CVR DVC4 $55
    *** or*** buy 1 get 1 free w/free shipping $100

    AMP:
    Profile AP1040 $90

    Run the 6.5" off the front 2 amp channels in stereo and run the sub in a small sealed enclosure off the rear 2 amp channels bridged.

    TOTAL PRICE: $274
    (not including sub box, wiring, line out converter, sound deadening, etc.)

    a single set of front speakers with a small amp will sound 50000x better than 2 sets of speakers ran off the headunit

    I have brought this up to my dad already but he doesnt want a sub nor an amp. So that ditches the sub and amp idea along with the components. His left rear speakers is also blown so thats why i will be replacing the back two speakers.

    I agree with you 100%. I would do the same if it was my vechicle, but its not.
