Comps without amping

I have a 2011 f150, its ok for factory speakers, but still cant blast it. I have a set of RF comps sitting here, and wanting to try them to see if it sounds better or can be cranked more. I know they should be amped, but i really dont want to run power wires and all that stuff in this truck. What do you guys think, sound the same or worth a shot? where would i get plates for 6.5 to fit in 5x7?

Wont have much of a difference those needed to be amped, the punch line is relatively loud on hu power.

Those comp come with adaptor plates, you may or may not have them check the box its at the bottom of the foam.

Aftermarket speakers on their own are rarely louder than the factory ones - at least not appreciably louder to change for that sole reason.

Amp 'em!

Change only 1 side; then you can do an A/B comparison and either only have to revert 1 side back to stock, or finish the job as planned.
