    Is it worth running comps off head unit/

    Got my RE comps today, gonna be waiting on an amp for a while. (9.4) Should I go ahead and run them off of head unit (860mp) power for now, or just wait on the amp?

    I would say wait. IMO it is not good to under power speakers. Just wait until you get a nice amp. The best things in life are worth waiting for.
