    Pheonix Gold 6.5" worth it? links

    Ok, I am on a budget and found these for replacing my door speakers, I will be running them off a Sony headunit 52wx4. Anyone have any first hand experience or complaints? The car I just bought has aftermarket no name speakers.

    A small amp would be better than HU power

    Your headunit doesn't put out 52x4, thats max rating, your really getting less than 20 a channel

    Did you look at the links? Those are not component speakers, I didn't know the model number of my headunit thats why I refrenced the power from the head unit,

    Get a set of comps or good coaxs for the front and amp them with a Profile 400SX. Leave the rear speakers alone and power them off the HU.

    I have a pair of the 6.5" Ryval coax. I like them ok they are in the rear only powered off the headunit. Then I installed my PG RSD's in the front off of my external amp and can no longer hear the Ryvals.I think the Ryvals are decent entry level speakers but I now think rear fill is pointless (at least off HU power)
