Speaker upgrades and an amp?
So the Kicker upgrade for tweeters and door speakers is about $550 and there is a local audio dealer which says he can put in 'better' speakers for the same price or about $500. He carries JL Audio speakers.
First question, are they in fact an upgrade over the Kicker set from Subaru?
Second, I've read that if you upgrade the speakers you really need an amp to push them with the stock head unit in the Limited or they will clip at higher volumes. Again, my local audio dealer is suggesting an Alpine 4 channel amp for another $100 +$100 for installation. Is this necessary? Is it a big improvement? Is this a decent price?
