      Car speaker and home audio speakers have different impedance. Its hard to find home audio amp which can easily run car speakers. Though you can build an amp yourself, that will be much more cost effective and you can customise as per your requirement.

      Google for speaker impedance relation with amp.

      Car speakers usually are designed to perform better in smaller enclosure.

      If you have required data marked on the speakers or on their packaging, then you can design the box using some online tools like this: Speaker Box Volume Calculator / Designer

      The Hertz HCX 165 drivers are rated at 100W @ 4ohm. This TPA3116 Class D amp with bundled 24V power supply can drive it. Make sure you create box with correct specs as pointed out by Jack Sparrow based on the specs provided here.

      Note when you're using your Phone as a source, the output stage might not be very strong. You might want to use a Preamplifier something like this

      So the setup will look like Phone -> Pre Amp -> Amp -> Hertz Speakers

      Since these are open baffle coaxial, I will not recommend these for home audio purpose. They are essentially fillers to be put on the rear.

      If you want DIY home audio setup then can consider an amp like this: Allo - Volt+ Amp - Stand Alone Audio Amplifier.

      And can buy home audio drivers and tweeter from the same store, plenty of options available at there.
