I have a low-end car stereo that claims 4 x 50w output. No amp, and no plans at this stage to get one.
However, I do want to replace the speakers.
I currently have a pair of 4" 80w speakers in the front doors, and....well.....I'm not going to go into details but lets just say I have 20-40w "box" speakers in the back that I knew weren't actually car speakers, but have turned out to be even worse than I feared.
So - I'm no audiophile. I don't need enough bass to get the liquefaction bubbling again in my street. I would, however, like a reasonable amount, which is approx 36,000 times more than I have now.
I'm looking at 160w ones for the front, and maybe 240-260w 6" ones for the back.
My question - is there any point going that high?
