Default Lucky, lucky me.

I have a 1993 ssei, premium sound and all. Today i was driving home along a country road...and on the shoulder i see a large grey box. I pull over, and whaddaya know, its a brand new speaker box pre-cut for 4 6x9s that must have just fallen out of someone'* truck :] I have 2 spare 6 x 9s from an old trick and i need some advice:

Should i move the stock 6 x 9s to the box and have all 4 there, or keep the 2 stock in place and my 2 spares in the back?

How big of an amp should i be looking at? All i have now is some junky 250w dual chan JBC amp from an old camaro...thinking i should get a new one. Any suggestions for an amp? On a relatively loose budget, nothing too expensive though.

thanks in advance :P

I wouldnt amplify the stock speakers. If you do youll have to turn down the gain big time on the amp. Since the factory 6x9'* (at least in my car) are at 10 ohm. Majority of the aftermarket speakers are at a lower ohm than this. Are you talking about the individual 6x9 boxes or something else.
