Default Now need help on Amp ratings for these speakers...

I think I will go for some new Pioneer speakers. Looking at the 4-way 6x9, and the 4x6 for the front (that is stock size, right?). Here are the ratings...(4 OHM Speakers)

6x9 - 350w peak/80 RMS
4x6 - 120w peak/20 RMS


Are those decent ratings? Or should I look at a better model? Now what type of power should I look for on a 4 channel amp? I Saw a PPi on ebay for 150 and had 40wx4 RMS at 4 Ohm. That seems like to much for the 4x6 and too less for the 6x9. I want to be able to turn them up without blowing or disorting anything

Ok, I found a Kicker Amp that is a 4ch.

75 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms

What do yall think

just make sure you set your cross overs right and you will be able to turn them up. if you have the 4x6'* getting any bass with a amp you can pretty much tell them good bye because they will blow pretty quickly

But as long as the bass is down on the 4x6'*, then they will be ok. What do you think of Kicker Amps though?

The PPI is fine. I find some 6x9 power handling stuff to be way exaggerated.
