Alpine 6 1/2 inch door speakers

[font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 21-Mar-01 AT 04:16 PM (EST)[/font][p][font size="1" color="#FF0000"]LAST EDITED ON 21-Mar-01 AT 04:16*PM (EST)[/font]

I am looking at the Alpine SPR-172A ($200 Canadian) rounds for the doors in my reg cab. Are these a good speaker? They are the best non-component setup in the 6 1/2 size that Alpine makes supposedly.
specs:
2 way
150w/40w
40hz-30khz


Or should I go to the component setup (SPR-175A) for $250 Canadian?
specs:
2 way
200w/50w
35hz-35khz

Is doing this worth the money? and extra pain to install the tweets?

They are replacing 23 year old quality Pioneers that still sound as good as my 2 year old Sony 6x9's in the back!
Thanks!

Oh yeah,
I have a 25 watt (peak) Alpine head unit with CD (circa 1996).
Great suspension (takes quite a bump to skip it, even in a stiff 3/4 ton)

Would a higher rated speaker do me any good, when I am only putting out 15 watts RMS or so??

Some of the Rockford Fosgate speakers look pretty awesome

FNQ1614
6-1/2"
4 ohms
45Hz-20kHz
RMS / Peak Power 100 / 200 Watts

Help!
