Kicker speakers need advice

I was at Walmart getting oil and came across these speakers
Kickers 4ohms ds60 6 1/2 for $65
And kickers 4ohms ds525 5 1/2 for $55
They had amps also but didn't look cause I don't know what I need
This will go into a 2011 RGU I have no clue about audio systems
This isn't something that needs to be done ASAP it's on my list but at the bottom
Just wondering if it's a good price,and good enough.im happy with the stock system but if i figured for the price wasn't that bad.i use a 3/4 on hwy riding with hd headset so I can hear the music
And on the back roads stock is good. But again wouldn't mine a upgrade for a good price

Your stereo is set up for 2 ohm speakers. A friend of mine thought these Kickers were neat looking and replaced his stock rear speakers with them. They lasted about a week and he blew one of them. He's since wised up and put in a set of J&M's.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.

Kicker has not made good product in years. I was an Area Manager for Best Buy's install bay for 7 years. you can make a a pair of 4OHM speaks 2ohm by running them in series so do not worry too much about that. I would not personally buy Kicker product though. Best bank for the buck is going to be Pioneer. JL Audio makes a great product as well but it is over priced.
