    New speakers

    Hi all
    I have an 03 Active. I just changed my stereo to a sony. It has 4 X 45 W output. I believe the standard speakers in the car are 25 W. Is it worth changing the speakers to get the best from the new stereo? If so what wattage should I be looking for? Should it be 45W to match the stereo. Any help appreciated.
    regards

    Ignore the 4x45 watts figure mate, that's the max output where the stereo is fed some stupid voltage just to get that figure then it blows up

    In reality your new stereo will be putting out anything in between 4x20-25 watts RMS ( RMS = root means squared or continuous ) so the standard speakers are getting the best now

    Still if you are gunna upgrade the standards, you really should amp them, as they're going to distort at higher volumes with them being underpowered
