A 4 channel amplifier rated for fifty to a hundred watts per channel.   I would shoot for 75 watts by four channels/300 watts total.

 

      Do not be misled by PEAK, PEAK MUSICAL, INSTANTANEOUS, or MAX wattage ratings, they mean absolutely nothing.

 

    75 watts, rms.

It may be well worthwhile to get a piece of dynamat or any sound deadener and stuff behind and around the front speakers, and around the 6x9's. Don't be fooled, a 50 watt amplifier is capable of 3 times the power as a 50 watt head unit.

peak is just what the speaker can handle during a brief burst of sound or music. Continuous or rms (root median square) rating is what you want to look for and is a more accurate measure of what the speaker can handle
