    Smile Alpine or Edge speakers?

    Hi

    Im going to upgrade my front door speakers tomorrow and was wondering which would sound louder without distortion.

    Speakers are going to be powered by HU which has 4x50 RMS outs and Im not planing on getting an amp. I also have 12'' Edge Active Sub in the boot. What I really need to know whether those components going to sound loud enough of HU's MOSFET 50 RMS lol.

    Alpines:

    Edge:

    Your head unit will be 4x50W peak power not rms.

    I don't know about louder, but the Alpines will definitely sound better than the Edge, especially after listening for a time.

    none look very good.
    very cheap n not that powerfull.
    ive never been a fan of vibes as there cheap and just used to make loud noises n not quilly sound.
    i like alpines as i have a full type s set up in my astra.
    id go 4 the alpines but get compants and replace them in standard holes.
    u mite need speaker rings 2

    Thanks guys, can't really afford Focals or anything like that, just looking for a not very expensive replacement.
