I found I was thrashing my CD head unit (90% of max volume) - so I bought an
amp (Alpine 3527s) and the difference is noticeable. I have a couple of 6"
80W Pioneers in the back and they do the job quite nicely (though I'd replace
them with 6"x9" speakers if I could!) It pays to remember that without an
external amp you're only driving your speakers at around 20W max - a fraction
of their potential.
Since you want to keep things stock I won't tell you about the sub I'm having
installed this week :)
I'd be interested in the possibility of replacing those weeny speakers in the
front too... If I bought those 6x9's what's the chance of stuffing my 6"
speakers in the front?
