With those speakers, you will want to do an amp. You might want to go ahead & drop the $$ on a good head unit & matching amp at the same time. As stated before, you don't NEED an amp as you're getting music now. BUT, what kind of music . . .<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I totally agree. Get an amp. It appears you have recognized that your good speakers sound better in some respects than your previous stock speakers like cleaner, less congested, open, and airy. However, they probably lack some of the punch and snap that you had from your stock speakers. Overall maybe it is a bit less musical, even though you upgraded the speakers.
The best thing here would be for you to hold-off a bit, and wait untill you can get both a head unit and a good quality 4-channel amp at the same time.
