    i recently just bought somer new alpines to replace the stock speakers in my 1996 volvo 850. i got Alpine SPR-69C 6X9s(2-100 watts RMS, 300 watts peak power) for my rear deck and Alpine SPS-400 4"s(2-45 watts RMS,140 watts peak power) for my front and rear doors. i also purchased baffles to install with all of them in hopes of getting a little more umph out of them. i plan to run them off of my Pioneer DEH-P5000UB that puts out 14watts with a peak of 50watts. i really dont know anything about car audio and was wondering if i should consider buying an amp to power my new speakers? also, if i dont, what are my speakers going to sound like? suggestions are appreciated.

    TIA James

    I'd suggest you buy an amp to power your new speakers. Perhaps get two amps: one two-channel amp for the 6x9s and one four-channel amp for the door speakers. The reason I suggest two amps is because the power rating for your door speakers is not the same as the power rating for your rear deck speakers.

    Hope this helps
