Are these speaker's any good?

So I am new to car audio and want to know if these are good speaker's:
Pioneer TS-G6844R

If so, are they better the stock bass wise? I have the blaupunkt system so the bass is decent for a stock unit, but I want to add a little more bass if possible without a sub. Also do I need an additional wire harness to install these?

Thanks

In truth, just about anything is better than the stock speakers, but that being said, Pioneer is a wal-mart brand if you know what i mean. I highly recommend spending the extra bucks on some Polks or alpines, you wont regret it.

I'm running Pioneer TS-A874M's for all speakers (Pioneer headunit) and love them. They need to be on an amp and the base isn't amazing but it's much better than stock. The mid to treble is way better than stock.

I think I will try the pioneer's because of price. I'm probably just getting the rear's for now, possibly might get front's done later on. I'm not looking for makin my car rattle cuz obviously I would need a sub for that, but these should do me good for the time being. Also, do you guys think these would work to muffle sound and make the speakers sound better?
