Found an alright deal at Ultimate Electronics going out of business sale on some Infiniti Kappas and Reference. If i replace my speakers will the stockamp with a Clarion head Unit be enough to power them? The store said it was 5.25 in front and back is this true? Should I just replace the fronts or just the backs?
If they are a really good deal, go ahead and get both front and rear. They will run fine of of the amp/hu you have. The nice thing about the Kappas is that you can run them off the hu power and then later on put a 100 x 4 amp on them. THAT'S when they stand up and sing, and show you why you spent the money on the better speakers. They should be 5.25" in the front and rear. If you have to choose between front or rear do the front ones first as they are closer to your ears and most of the sound you want coming from the front anyways.
The only downfall to replacing one pair, is that the factories are more efficient and will play louder (not cleaner, just louder) than the Infinity's. So you will have to fade towards the front a little until you replace the other pair. The aftermarkets will most definately benefit from the 100x4 amp than what the factories ever could (you cant go full tilt on the factories with that much power).
I've got them front and rear, and I have absolutely NO regrets on my purchase. They play the hard stuff (good traveling-to-work-and-wake-your-arse-up-at-4:30-in-the-morning-music), the old school stuff (for the drive home), and the more mellow stuff (weekend cruising).
Good luck and never look back....
