Re: Guess I might need new speakers now...
You will hear a difference. They are decent speakers a good upgrade from factory in the budget range. Not sure you are going to get what you looking for though by powering them off the HU.IMO I would reccomend looking into a budget 4 channel amp. Profile amps come to mind in the decent budget area.
You can run them of the HU but you are not going to be happy with the way they sound without purchasing an amp. Especially trying to run a pair of 6x9's of a HU.IMO You cannot go by the rating on a HU rms. I would be suprised if you are actually seeing 1/2 the RMS in true power.
