Heres my question, would it do me any good to change out my door speakers to Rockford Fosgate component speakers without getting an amp and just using the power of the HU?
Would it be any better? Or simply not enough coming from factory HU to make it worth doing?
My audio installer stated in order to "do it right" I would need an amp and that would require him to buy an "8 volt" something to eliminate static noise. He said using an amp for the door speakers would require that piece. Im not audio savvy so i'm hoping that 8 volt piece (which is 120.00 apparently) is really necessary.
But any chance the RF components would be much of an upgrade WITHOUT an amp?
It is always advised to upgrade the door speakers. Going with the highest efficiency with get you more sound with less power. I would do it first and then add an amp later if you think it is needed. I have no idea what 8 volt peice he is talking about. Try and get a part number
