    do you plan on upgradeing to better speakers later on?
    if so may as well shell out the bucks now for a amp that has a good amount of power. the worst thing you can do is be underpowered with high end aftermarket speakers.

    i think the stock front speakers can handle maybe 50W's i don't know about those rear speakers. i guess you can just turn the gain down on the rear speakers and you'll be good to go. i wouldn't push much then 75w's to the stock speakers.

    So if i purchased just a inexpensive 4 ch amp rated at 200 watts that would be 4 x 50w channels right?

    And a 300w would be a 4 x 75w?

    is 75 pushing it already and i should just go for the 4 x 50w amp to be safe?

    go with the 50x4. but be forewarned...you'll be kicking yourself if in fact you decide to upgrade your speakers
