6X9'* in the back. I swear by Infinity Kappa'*; especially if you are still using the stock head unit. Kappa'* don't need a lot of power and sound better than almost anything I've heard. I think the front depends on the options you have.

Your Pioneer should have plenty of power for most speakers. I know it will have plenty of power for Kappa'* without needing any additional amps. If you have a sub in the trunk, then you really don't need to replace the 6x9'* in the back unless you want to get high frequencies in the rear seat as well. Some people remove the 6x9'* altogether when adding a sub.

You can spend $100-200 on Kappas(either components or not) for the front seat and get great mid'* and high'* to complement your Rockford.

I'm no expert on sub amps, but if you only have one 12" Rockford, I'd say get a brand name amp(Rockford, Infinity, JBL, Sony, Alpine) with an RMS rating similar to your Rockford'* RMS rating. You'll only need a single channel mono amp since it is one speaker. If I remember correctly, these are called "class D" amps. Don't go cheap on your sub amp or you won't get good sound out of it. Figure about $.50 to $1 per RMS watt for a good amp. DO NOT get the crap that those gypsies sell at convention centers around the country.

Homeboy is right, kinda, you need to power the fronts with a amp with a high pass xover, most good amp have these built in you just have to select it, power the sub according to your taste you want to be heard by people blocks away 1000 watts or so. You are going to get good in car sound with 400-600 and you can then turn it down or up by you taste in sound.
