No you dont need an amp, you will be surprised how good they sound off the HU!

I have infinity 6x9's, they sound well good without an amp. Id get them first, then if you decide you want to amp them you can.

Yeah you just disconnect them. Its not the easiest, space is quite limited. You will need some speaker wire, the original wire is very short. I also bought some Autoleads connectors (4 quid a pair frm Halfords), it saved cutting any wire on the car loom.

All 6x9s will cope with far more power than the HU output, this dosent matter. Generally the more expensive the 6x9s the better they will sound!

Polarity is irrelevant for speakers.

Hope this helps,

Be carefull with the polarity of the preakers becace if the transpose the +ve and -ve you wil end up with an " out of phase" signal which apart from knackering the cone , surround, spider and voice coil of the speaker at anything approaching a decent volume you will lose all bass, this is because the speaker will be pulling not pushing ( in effect the speaker is in reverse).
