The Kicker speakers are rated at 60W RMS. That means that it will work best with that much power (in your case anyways). Each speaker will need somewhere around 60W. That means you should have an amp that is 60W x 2, or even more power is better.

The headunit is rated 22W x 4 (I guess), but will not likely do rated power. It will power the speakers, but the speakers will perform much better with a dedicated amp instead.

Since you're getting component speakers, most people will recommend you getting a dedicated amp anyways.
