I had been thinking about replace my head unit for a bit and ended up buying a new unit today. While I was reading reviews of them online I read one that said they replaced some stock speakers as well which got me thinking about doing the same. This is what I ended up with.Pioneer AVH-P3400BH
I managed to score it for $330.
I have been looking at these (Pioneer 6" x 8" 4Way Coaxial Speakers
) but don't know enough about sound systems to know if they are a good choice for me.
I would like to run them without
installing an amp if at all possible.I don't tend to rock out much and usually listen to npr while out and about but could see myself "dropping the bass" with some dubstep if I had something that sounded well on occasion. I don't have interest in buying a sub.
1- With this head unit and speakers would I need an amp?
2- The speakers claim to be 4 way coaxial, is this better than 2/3 way speakers? Other than knowing they have 2 tweets and 2 woofs each I don't know what this means. (I don't think I want to install tweeters on the door panel separately as many others here have done.)
3- What is the best way to connect after market speaker to the head unit? I saw little connectors on amazon that bridge from the new speaker to the stock speaker wire, is this the best way to make that connection?
4- I am going to buy the steering wheel control adapter, do I need the parking brake bypass? I am not sure what functionality I gain by using this?
Thanks for the help, I am not a patient person and would like to get all of this done in the next few days, amazon shipping willing. I can get the speakers on amazon for a fair amount less than listed with bestbuy. I would be willing to spend about $80 a pair and am up for speaker suggestions as long as I wouldn't need to cut out the door to get them to fit.
