As title says,
I'm looking into getting Alpine R fronts and rears.
Sites say 90w rms, but I don't know if it's overrated or what?

Any suggestions are welcome.

Cool, thanks man.
Before I get a sub/amp, I'm going to upgrade the speakers before I get a sub.
I hated having my 15"s in the trunk when I can't hear **** for music.
I'm getting the Alpine 9855 and MRP F550.
I believe you can set more **** with alpine amps on the 9855, but I may be mistaken.

Thats the amplink feature on the old MRD V12 amps that's not going to work with the MRP series of amps.

From crutchfield site:

Alpine's CDA-9855 represents the next step in the evolution of the in-dash receiver.

Take a close look at CDA-9855's faceplate, and you might find yourself saying in surprise, "Hey — there are no preset buttons!" And you're right — instead, there's only a simple, white, silicon rubber strip. That's Alpine's incredibly innovative GlideTouch™ panel.

Just like the touch pad on a laptop computer, you simply slide your finger over the strip until you've found the function you want (a sound guide helps you out). Read more
