    Should I use an Amp? <----Noob

    So a fiend gave me a hand me down Alpine 3554 amp (50 watts X 4 RMS). I'm trying to decide whether the sound quality improvement would be worth the trouble of the install. I've got a cheapie aiwa deck (two 2.2 volt preouts) which is 23 watts x 4 rms with factory subaru speakers in the front and Pioneer TS-G1340R 5 1/4" (25 watt rms) speakers in the rear. So basically since me speakers aren't really underpowered the way things are, would the amp really improve any thing? Any help here would be great. Thanks Guys.

    Matt

    im sure the sound quality from an alpine amp would be better then from an aiwa hu.
    you might not think so but theeres quite a difference between 23 watts rms and 50, you might not be able to tell a difference with your stock fronts, but it should liven up your rears some.

    being that your speakers are pretty low grade i dunno how much it would help, but by a mid grade set of speakers, 50-75 bucks a pair and put that amp on them and youll hear a drastic difference over what you have now.

    rears: removed, thinking about replacing
    amp: none, fronts running off hu
