    powering speakers question

    i have a set of 4x10 speakers i just got for my s-10 standard cab they are pyramid 300 watt max speakers and i hooked them up to my sony explode head unit and when i turn them up to about 28-30 they start to distort my question is will i get a proformance gain by hooking them up to a 250x4 watt amp i also plan on getting speakers for the front in a 300 watt rating

    you'll get a performance gain by hooking it up to a good 50 watt rms amp but don't expect miracles, that shape is a horrible format for a speaker cone.


    the power handling of those speakers are probably around 20 wrms anyways.

    your best option would be to get some kick pod speakers (a nice 6.5" component set) and delete the rear speakers. then get a nice amp to power them.
