They run fine even off the head unit, but a good 75 to 100 watt amp will be good.

Well i have just installed illusion electra 6 inchers in my swift. The speakers worked nicely from the head unit but after hooking them up on the 75.4 they sound like a different thing all together. Simply put absolutely awesome.

Ive installed Illusion EL62 coaxials in front doors of my Indica. Running off the HU (Pio 6950). Rear speakers are Ground Zero ovals.

Recently I noticed that the Right speaker sounds softer. I used the balance control to listen to each speaker separately and the difference was clear. The left speaker is louder and sound much fuller.

Gurus ?

listen and choose between the 2 shortlisted above.

also see if you can find Hertz Deici / Illusion Electra in your neighbourhood, they are in the same price band.

In this list the JBL is the best one. But you can have a listen to other brands also as Bombay is quite nearby.

I'd stay away from Soundstreams products today. They had some exciting stuff many years ago, but today the stuff isn't good anymore.
