    Anyone tried these?

    I'm a newbie and I'm looking to buy Pioneer TS-C1653 6.5" components. I was thinking of getting 6x9s for my rear deck but a combo of reading this forum and not wanting to eviscerate my deck convinced me to go the components route.

    I have a '94 Acura Integra and I'm looking to put the compos in my front doors; right now I have Pioneer TS-A1667 in there, which I'd move to the back. My HU is a Sony CDX-MP30 and I also have a Pioneer Premier GM-X644 amp (4x50 RMS) on the way.

    Anybody have any ideas on the TS-C1653 ? Will I still want to kill for a subwoofer or will the 1653's bass be any better than the 1667, which isn't bad? Thanks!!!

    Pioneer says the speakers can handle 40 W RMS (120 W peak), 50 W RMS (150 W peak) with an another (optional for more $$$, I'm sure) crossover.

    Could this truly be a problem? Would I ever use more than 40 W of the amp's capability anyway? I am a newbie and having very little understanding of these things...

    40 watts to a single driver would be more than adequate, if you ask me... hu amps put out less than that, and it's stilld ecent...of course, you do get distortion, but how loud does a newbie need? oh wait, my bad, newbies always want a boomin' system...

    seriously, I think 40 watts shouldn't be much of a problem..

    Bass drive-by's are uncool.

    well newbie guess the quesstion is how old you are and how loud you want it or how loud you can handle it. im 36 (dont have an amp now) but i love it loud really loud.
    for me id find something with something around 90-100rms(and of course good sq)
    then find an amp that would go from 75 to 100rms with good clean sq
    pioneer is good if your cash flow is low right now but id save and get what i really wanted insteed of just gettin something to sound good for awhile and just want to change it in 6mons.

    Thanks for your replies...but would the fact that my amp carries 50 W RMS while my speakers only handle 40 W RMS be a problem? Thanks!!!

    any time you get more output fron an amp than what a speaker handles rms you take the chance of blowing it. i like to keep my under by ten or twenty watts like go with 90-100rms speakers and 75 -90-watts rms on an amp. but thats just me
