  • How powerful of an AMP to get?

    Hey all...
    I want to stick to my stock speakers.. (they're pretty good! )
    And my stock audio system was probably a 50Wx4 speakers...
    So, I'm not too knowledgable in the field of amp's,power unit conversion etc..

    How powerful of an amp would I require?

    thanks for answers..

    For stock speakers, a good 300 watt amp will be well enough power for them.

      Yikes, highly overpriced and overdone. No way will he need a 300 watt amp for stock speakers.

      I run 100 watts RMS to my stock speakers. I am careful on distortion and never use my bass or loud function. I recommend a quality amplifier with 50 to 100 watts per channel per speaker. It is always better to overpower than underpower, but dont waste money on too much power
      Take my advice: Do not try to build a system that includes EVERY feature. Start with the basics, build it to a bug free state, and THEN add on.

        Yes will you are correct, he doesn't need that much power. I meant 100-200 watts rms and 300 watts max power. And i can come across amps pretty cheap, which is also why I said 300 watt amp. I would at least get a good amp so that if he wanted to change out his stock speakers, the power would be there already....

          - SrCsTc's Bezel
          - Alpine W200/H701
