Improving the quality of your speakers is a big step in building a truly great sound system. Factory speakers are not good – fact. They are mass-produced, low-quality examples using literal paper and sub-standard magnets to produce sound from an underwhelming factory head unit.
When you upgrade your head unit, your factory speakers go from getting around 6-7WRMS of power to around 23-24WRMS of power from your upgraded head unit. This is a big change. With speakers, more power equals more sound. Pretty soon, your factory speakers will start crackling and sounding terrible.
