Would these be to fit to a corsa b 1995?




I'm going to be running them off a kenwood 4x50 headunit.

really?


This article scared me

components or coaxials?
components

pros - Components allow you to position the drivers separately and more carefully, which will give you greater control over imaging. Try to keep the mid and tweeter as close together as possible - this will make the two drivers sound more like a single speaker, and preferably in the same plane (pointing in the same direction). If your standard speaker locations are very low down in the car you can place the tweeters higher up to lift the sound stage.

cons - Components require more work to install as you will have to mount the tweeters separately, and most component kits also have separate crossovers. ***There is often very limited space to locate the crossovers and they require far more wiring. Components also require more power to drive them as there are 2 pairs of drivers and the crossovers also soak up quite a bit of power. Therefore to get the best results you will need to add an external amplifier. ***



External amp? really

Of course. Running them off a 4x50 headunit, which probably doesn't actually put out 50W RMS would seriously underpower them. Get coaxials if you want to run them off the headunit, or get an amp.

You can amp components, they tend to sound better, a bit. Mounting components depends on type of components you get, you can pick up two way sets with a 16.5cm mid-woofer and tweeter which will pop in the corsa door cards and existing mounts with kits. You can change the wiring if you are amping them. End of the day its relatively easy.
