I don't rate Pioneer speakers personally, I had some fairly high-end 2-ways in the doors of my 205 and they sounded a million pounds worse than the Infinity Reference components I've got in the Lag now, and they certainly didn't cost a million pounds less (although a diesel Lag 1 estate is possibly the worst soundstage I can imagine - I lose all the bass from the door speakers the moment the engine is running due to the low frequency vibration...)

They sound even better now I'm running them off a dedicated Tripath amp I got on eBay for a tenner. Screw having massively powerful amps, the quality matters a lot more, and you won't get much cleaner, more detailed sound from anything, let alone these little Tripath TA2020/2024-based amps, which aren't intended for automotive use but seem quite happy to run without any regulation directly off a car power source.
