BA Speakers in stock system

Picked up some boston acoustics speakers from the premium system off ebay. Before I go taking off door panels, will swapping the stock speakers out for the BA speakers bring any noticeable improvement? I will be keeping the rest of the system stock, so I will not be installing an amp and will be running these off the stock head unit.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

The speakers themselves are an improvement over stock, however they'll be even better if they have the BA amp to power them.

Re: BA Speakers in stock system

I hate my BA speakers. Next step for me is the kicker speakers and amp with a kicker l7 powered by a 1000 watt amp. If I think the BAs are bad I can't even imagine the stock ones.

Re: BA Speakers in stock system

I feel like you really need an amp/head unit to get the most out of speakers. I upgraded to like the memphis power reference speakers from the BAs in my SRT8 and i really didnt notice that much of a difference
