Will the stock head-unit be a good idea to power four Alpine Type R speakers?

Asked by Jun 29, 2015 at 04:47 AM about the 2004 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Car Customization

I'm looking into purchasing some Type R speakers for my car...two 6.5 for the front and
two 6x9 for the rear. Will the stock head unit be enough or do I enough an amp to power
these Alpine Type R speakers? Please keep in mind I am not adding, nor do I own a sub
in the trunk. Thank you

I'm sure it will make the audio sound a bit better, but to get the maximum benefit to the new speakers, an additional amp to power them would be recommended. Replace them and see if you like the sound, if not, then you can always add an amp or amps in the future. Make sure though the new speakers impedance rating is the same as the stock ones. (ex. 4 ohms.)

Alright thank you! Honda Accord has to have the 4ohms if I'm not mistaken.
