Hello Fellas, Recently I installed a JVC KW XR610 which puts out 22 RMS as I understand and really like the unit but the oem speakers sound like crap. I want to upgrade the speakers. I DON'T want to add a amp I just want a decent sound with just the HU. I researched some speakers and the POLK db 651 and the Alpine SPS 600 are at the top of my list. I wanted to know what you guys thought. Let me know what has worked for you without using an amp. Thanks fellas, :hi:

Coaxials are midrange drivers with the tweeter mounted in the center of the driver. And components have separate midrange drivers, tweeter, and crossovers

Components generally sound better since you have the option to place the tweeter wherever you want for better staging and imaging.
So if you're going for good sound quality definitely get components.

So, can install four of these? I think there is only two spots for tweeter and where does the box go?

while components do have a better sound, no argument there, unless you are planning to amp them you really won't hear much of a difference vs regular coaxial speakers imo. both will sound better than you have now sure enough. the components will also have a much higher difficulty curve for installation if you've never done that kind of thing before. they allow for the crossover point to be adjusted, coax's do not, they are more plug-and-play. granted neither are terribly hard to install, if you aren't used to working with various types of car audio equipment, you may not want to try to tackle components. i've got 3 way coaxial pioneers in my front and rear doors. took 1 hour to install all four and they sound great for very little money. would i like to get a better set of speakers? maybe down the road but i'm not in a hurry.

Usually people put components in the front and coaxials in the rear. And the crossover box can go anywhere it fits. People usually just put them in the door behind the panel to keep it hidden though. Either coaxials or components, either will be a nice upgrade from stock.

If you are not going to amp them, make sure you get something that the head unit your using will somewhat push. If there is not enough power to move the speaker, they will all sound like crap.
I would suggest the Rockford Fosgate R1653 for the back and these for the front

IMO...

Rear - Pioneer TS-G1643R here
Frpmt - Boston Accoustics S95 6"x9" here

The only reason I would choose these is because you are not going to amp.

The Phoenix Golds I posted sound very good unamped. My friend had them in his doors running just off of the headunit (maybe 20rms) and they sounded great. The tweeters were alittle harsh, but after messing around with them some they sound great, especially for being so cheap. Best bang for your buck in components. Many car audio enthusiast will say the same about them too.

As for the rear, I don't look into coaxials or rear stage setups, so i can't really help you there.

Get the Alpines. I have them in my truck, with no amp, and I love them.
