    Time to upgrade the components, need some help!

    Hey guys,
    Just been looking around at upgrading my components, as i would say they need replacing. I've got a new headunit which has been in for a few weeks now (Pioneer DEH P40MP) And have just been looking at some front components and tweeters, I was looking for the 17cm ones as i have a 3d hatch, and came accross these pioneer components http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/pion...2c-p-4797.html
    They look pretty nice, and are within my budget. But will i have to buy an amp for them though? (just thought my headunit may power them)
    Also these tweeters http://www.caraudiodirect.co.uk/alpi...05-p-2889.html

    Again i am new to Ice, so if anyone could help me i would appreciate it!

    if you buy those components you won't need anymore tweeters

    nearly always best to buy components as a set (like the ones you've posted) as the crossovers will be set to the appropriate levels for the specific speakers. those pioneers will be fine running from headunit or amp, but definately spend as much as you can, as you get what you pay for.

    judging by £55 for the comps and £30 for the tweeters that you've posted, would I be right in saying you have a budget of £85? if so then see what you can get for that as they'll be better than those Pioneer jobbies
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.

    Was thinking of trying to power them through the headunit but i found out that it's not up to the job now, so i'm thinking i might just stick with the standard install, Thanks for the replies though guys!
