i really like the look of the type Rs and i heard there good, but also heard the infinity ones are good, the 5 1/4s will be open (no grill in front )

I wouldn't bother with comps if you're going to power them via the HU. The HU won't do them justice.

You never know until you try it, he might like it he maybe wont like it.

 

I say you try it first, i would get the Type R's and see if you like them ran of the HU if not get an amp.

I have a '98 GrandPrix GTP, and stock headunit goes to a 6 channel amp...

 

in the front its 5 1/4 comps

in the rear it has 3 1/2's and 6x9's

 

also in the rear it it has a high and low wires, so for coxials you have to do some modding for correct sound staging....

 

 

so if ur using the stock hu ur getting ~ 65 wrms up fornt ~50 and ~25 in the back

ofcourse you can just hook them up

just hook the speaker wire going to the speakers now to the crossover and wire it all up.

im not sure on how much power the stock system has but its byfar more than most cars... also the car is well sound drended, so any 3rd party comps you decide to buy will sound amazing its just going to depend how how much you want to spend.

 

 

 

another aspect of the stock stero is that the fader removes bass and makes the front and rear sound aweful when adjusted. so when installing have all the speakers running and not just faded to the front.

 

 

 

as while i upgraded to better speakers, they were more efficent and when i pop a cd in its much much louder so becareful also

No way in hell your stock HU is putting out 65 wrms, you would be lucky if your stock HU put out 10 watts RMS. Stock HU's have the WORST rating system, and it is always in peak power.

 

I would not hook up comps to HU power let alone stock HU power. My Iridiums seem efficient enough to sound good off the HU (not stock though)! But I can't wait to see what they do once I get my amp hooked up!

 

I would suggest you just order your amp now so you don't have to wait.
