Question amp?

okay i have maybe a silly question. i'm thinking about installing aftermarket speakers in my doors and rear deck. do i need to buy an amp to push these or can i just leave it? in case you don't know i have a 2007 sedan ls. any help would be great.

thank you!

it'd be suggested if thats all you were going to do and never planned on getting a sub. but thats just for more bass. you can be fine w/out an amp as long as the speakers dont have a high RMS

You'll be fine without an amp. And even if you get a sub depending on wha speakers you have you wont need an amp. My buddy has aftermarket pioneers with no amp, and a kicker l5 with a 750 watt amp, and the speakers are doing fine without an amp.

are you using the stock deck? cuz 4way speakers require a lot more juice than the stock speakers get and more than what the stock stereo puts ou

I myself like a good clean sound well balanced sound and i would spring the extra 150 bucks and buy some thing that you will never regret doing.
