    Question help: did i make the right choice?

    hi a little while ago a brought some expensive apline speakers front and back, front ones did a nice job however back ones seem to reach a distortion very quickly, then relised that most 6x9 (which are nealy half the price) have a rms of 100 while mine only have a rms of 50rms?

    Have i made a bad purchase? (and gone for looks not power), or is it a case of that its draining the power from my sony HU (has a 54x4), therefore an amp would be needed to improve quality?

    also any recomendation for a sub and amp package on the internet anywhere?

    thanks for any help!

    Nothing wrong with the speakers - your head unit does not have enough power to run them - the distortion you are hearing is a clipped signal from the HU and can damage your speakers. Best get a good HU with more power or get an amp that will run both you proposed sub and the other speakers.

    PS. you don't need rear speakers anyway - sell them and fit better front ones.

    exactly.. buy a 4 channel amp that gives 50 or more rms to each channel and amp the lot you got and a big mono block for sub..
