Hi guys i'm new and like a good noob i am i like to ask questions before i buy new stuff i have no idea about and speakers falls into that category.

For christmas my girlfriend got me a Phoenix Gold R5.0:4 amplifier. it looks nice and i would love to use it. i've searched the forums for recommendations for this amp but couldn't find anything i could really use.

i'm thinking i would like to get some component speakers from the front and coaxial speakers for the rear <i believe this is a common set up?>

i was think i would like to run the Alpine Type R 6.5" Component and Coaxial, but i am worried about the Type R Components RMS or 75watts.

any ideas and suggestions would be helpful, also switching out the amp for the
R8.0:4 is prollie a no no.

neways i look forward to some feedback and thnx for having an easy to navigate forum. :clap:
