    Re: Door speakers

    external amplification is almost always better. You will be able to bring out the actual potential of the speaker and cut down on distortion, enhancing the sound and prolonging the life of the speaker

    Re: Door speakers

    Not uncommon with those types of head units. A decent external amp will help achieve better clarity at higher volumes. But if you are happy, you don't NEED an external amp.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.
