    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

    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....
