speaker upgrade question
So with christmas comin up i was thinkin of upgrading my speakers as a christmas present. i have an 06 wk stock sound system no amp, i recently installed the kenwood dnx 5120 in dash nav system it claims to have an internal amp but im not positive... i emailed crutchfield asking what speakers are good and they suggested bouston acousitc sc95 for the front, BA se65 for the back, and jl audio tr350-cxi for the dash

does any have a similiar setup what do u think? is all this stuff good do i need anything else like an amp or something?

thanks for the help

It's a lot about how much you want to spend. I love my Polks (Dxi). Not too expensive, and more than enough clarity and crispness for what I listen to. I've always heard good things about BA and JL though.

Re: speaker upgrade question
cool, im not lookin to spend a fortune i just want some better sound with a little more behind it than the crap stock speakers give off. im not a huge sound person though i dont need a sub or anything like that just want a little bit better sound, i really dont want to wire an amp up either, after what a pain it was to put in the head unit with the back up cam in i dont feel like taking all the trim pieces off that was a pain... the price in my shopping cart was like 400, do you think thats too much?

Re: speaker upgrade question
I'm in the same boat as you are. You can choose your own set up.

I don't have an amp neither but I do have a Pioneer HU with a built in amp. I will soon install Pioneer D series for all of the doors. I already replaced the dash speakers with small hard dome Pioneer tweeters.

I'm just hoping it will sound good without the need of an amp.

Re: speaker upgrade question
I installed Memphis door speakers already which was a long time ago. They don't sound all that great but that can be due to the fact that they are cheap.

Like I said before, I'm hoping I won't have install an amp when I upgrade to the Pioneer D series speakers. They are a higher line speaker from Pioneer. We'll see.

Does anybody else have an aftermarket HU with upgraded door speakers without an amp and the set up sound really good????
