    50-75 watts could fry those 4x6's with ease if you weren't wise with xover and gains

    50x4 if u never plan to upgrade. Amps have gains people u can have a 2krms@1ohm amp do only 100@1ohm use the gain and 50x4 is just a waste since power is cheap these days

    Re: How powerful of an amp do I need?

    I am willing to bet those 4x6's are 20-35wrms 50 rms is over head
    edit: I also only run 35wrms each door and it will make your ears ring. I'm probably dropping down to 5wrms for my next amp
