A must, even without an amp.

This is a monster of a speaker as far as bang for you buck and sound pressure levels for your buck. I have a 2003 Wrangler TJ and swapped my sound bar 5.25 Infinity Kappas into the dash corners using some PVC adapters. I chose these Infinity Reference 6.5 speakers for the sound bar because I've used the Kappa and Reference models in several other vehicles and both models squeeze every bit of available wattage from your radio head unit and sound better than anything else I've ever heard. The
6.5 size Reference fits perfectly into the sound bar holes, just requiring you to drill new mounting holes. I would suggest filling the sound bars the behind the speakers with polyfill. This polyester filling is used in most pillows or can be found at local stores to be used for pillow stuffing type applications. I won't get into the audio science behind stuffing these hollow sound bar holes, but believe me, DO IT. The difference is astounding and really allows these Infinitys to show off. The tweeter adjustment (+3db/0db)really makes a big difference, also. The tweeter may additionally be swivelled to point towards the passengers as needed to perfect the stereo sound picture. Be certain to get the negative/positive terminals mated up with the proper wire so that the speakers will be in phase correctly. Just Google your car model if you don't know the wire colors if you are using the stock speaker wires.These are just great speakers that sound crisp and tight and not muddy or weak. You will like these for whatever vehicle application.
