Question Stock door speaker peek power?

I just installed a Pioneer Avh-P4100Dvd in dash head unit and i was wondering what the stock door speakers peek power is.

They sound pretty good at a resonable volume but once i turn them up they start to loose it.

Also any reconmendations for new door speakers?

Thanks Guys

Any factory system has relatively low power handling ability. I would say you've exceeded the amount of power they can handle as soon as you installed an aftermarket head unit.

The only thing I can recommend is that you go some stores and listen to different speakers. Find what you like, whatever is pleasing to your taste. Some people like more bass in speakers, some like highs. You're the only one who can decide what you like...don't worry how good of a brand it is. Just decide what you like and if you can afford/want to spend the amount of those speakers.

The fronts are 6.5 and the rears are 6x9. I don't believe you'll have to worry about mounting depth.

honestly nething not stock or super cheap like dual or vr3 wal mart stuff... alot of entry level stuff that you can get from an audio shop is pretty good stuff with out spending the money for the name
