Not Necessary,But if you want more power and Sound Clarity out of it,Then you can use one.It will work fine even without an amplifier.[:)]

thanks for the reply.
Setup is for Manza.
In booklet of Pioneer X3590, under warning it says "Do not use speakers with less than 3 impedance" and these speakers have 2 only.
So will this be a prob if it is plz list some spekers with 3 to 4 impedance.
Thank you

Any thing less than 3 is a problem,GTO 949 is 4 Ohms.So no problems.[:)] also you can fix 5.25" Coaxial Speaker on front door too for better sound. JBL CS5 is good.

Anyone using JBL GTO 949 here? I need some information.
I wanted to know if the output is good without connecting it to an amplifier?

It should be good. I use GTO 938 along with Pioneer DEH-5450 in my car without an Amp. Sounds grate and has superb bass. The speakers rated as 2 Ohm too but they say it's safe to use in head units which needs 4 Ohm speakers. Have been using it for around year and so far no issue. And if you can use component speakers for the front. They usually offer higher sound quality than coaxials.

Hey guys ! Actually i wanted to go in for this comination, Pioneer DEH- X3590UI and JBL GTO 949 speakers. But later on Changed it do Pioneer DEH- X6590BT and JBL GTO S959. Not installed it yet. But just bought the parts. Do i need an amplifier for this setup? I have a budget of 4.5k for the amp. In the future, I may go for a sub-woofer. Please suggest guys.

Guys i am running into a problem. I bought the head unit after i bought the speakers. Now the HU manual says "Do not use this head unit with 1 ohm and 3ohm speakers.Using may result in fire or damage to the head unit".When i checked my speakers impedance. To my horror, The speakers say 3 ohm impedance. Can i use this setup or do i need to change my speakers?Please help guys [cry]

Actually guys which is the best? JBL GTO 949 or JBL GTO -S959?. Because some features like bulit in crossover network in the 949 is missing in s959. Can someone post a detailed review and analysis on both the speakers and tell me which is the best?
