    cheap speakers ? (500watt amp)

    My new system is working fine except that the front speakers in the door seem to be poor quality.

    I have a 500watt amp (not RMS), 6x9s rear and 6 round in the doors.

    I got some good advice here re setting up the gains but the 6 speakers begin distortion at a much lesser sound level than the rears. I cant get a good balance without sacrificing some power from the rears.

    The rears are Pioneer and rated at 300watts the fronts are Sansui and rated at 80watts. Im guessing I made a mistake there with the 80 watts, should have got 150+ ?

    To compound the problem the door speakers are right at the bottom so are masked by legs, Im thinking Id be better off with component speakers, I can mount the tweeters under the dash ends.

    My questions are
    Are these the symptoms of a low power speakers ?
    How much better is a component speaker?

    All advice most welcome, please

    up that wattage of the fronts so you dont have to turn the gain up to high which can cause distortion



    Price does NOT matter.. if your system is clean, loud, and could make me puke.. you got my props
