Hey Ive read a lot of conflicting info regarding this and figured that I will ask the pros. So I have a 03 Hyundai Sonata with stock speakers. One speaker doesnt even work. I want to install a new set of speakers and a head unit.
For the head unit I am considering the Sony dsx-s100 or the dsx-s200x, I like the tune tray idea. And for the speakers I am considering the Sony as well the XS-GT1627A for the front and the XS-GT6937A for the rear.
I know this is a real basic system, but right now this is all I can afford and I dont listen to it very loudly either. So my question is... how important is having an amp?
I have read up a bit and some say its ok to run the speakers without an amp and that it will just not be as good, but still better than what I have now. Others say that I can damage the speakers because the speakers are like 35 and 40 RMS and the head unit only puts out 17 RMS.
If I will see a big difference I will hold out and wait to buy an amp specially if it is bad for the speakers. But if you think that I dont need it then I will just go with the setup I am considering.
Please let me know what you think?? also any input regarding changes to my system are most welcome!
