For what you want? Perfect. Get the amped version.

Mom had one back in the day in her 86 Monte, wired directly to the rear speakers, not on their own path. It was good enough to make the rap I listened to back then sound good to me. But, it was also responsive enough for her rock music.

Well I really dont want to get into replacing everything. It'* just that from what I can tell the speakers are the weak point of the monsoon sound system and I want some new speakers that wont distort like the stock ones, you know something that is just clearer. I think I have all the power I really want for right now I just want the sound to be better.

In that case, go with some 4 Ohm speakers to save money.

The impedance difference is negligible, and you won't really hear the difference. I bet your speakers are distorting because they're starting to tear. I know somebody that doesn't have the Monsoon system, just the regular, and his stuff gets really loud without distorting.

i tried aftermarket polk 4 ohm speakers with the stock amp on my last car. it was the amp that was the problem. not counting phisically damaged speakers. i replaced the amp with a 400w for the front and rear deck and it was a whole lot louder without distortion and more full highs and lows at all levels.

I have my old Monsoon amp somewhere. If for whatever reason somebody wants it to play with, I'll gladly send it your way for the cost of shipping.

Oh well if the amp doesn't control anything and it wont mess anything up then I may as well look into replacing the amp as well. Any suggestions for amps with the stock head unit? As well as speakers to compliment the new amp?

Can i keep the setup like it is? Using the rear 6X9'* as "subs"? I really don't want to start installing actual subs.

I guess what I want is some good base with real nice mids and highs.

Well if you were closer I would ask for your help to do my system lol. I just have zero experiance with audio. I could afford the equipment but not the prices for a professional install at the same time.
