Can anyone tell me how weak the base stereo's HU is in terms of wattage? I want to know why amps are so necessary.
I read somewhere it is 12 watts per channel RMS (80watts Peak)
Key to getting quality sound from low power head units is to use speakers that have a low RMS working range(5-50RMS- 100peak)
If you start with a speaker with a RMS range of 50-80 watts RMS you do not have enough watts to power the speaker properly and sound quality will suffer.
