Re: Speaker choice and installation help needed
OEM Hu's put out about 3 watts a channel, so that's a no go :P But what you do want to look for if you aren't amplifying the speakers externally, are speakers with higher sensitivity ratings.

Kicker makes good amps and wiring. That's it. Both are a rip off.
JBL makes good stuff at good prices.
If you stick around in the hobby, you'll learn all the other brands that enthusiasts commonly use that are typically a much better product and value from every angle.
