I'm looking for a deck that is able to power all my door speakers (JBL GTO series) without the need of an amp. I want to be able to add an amp at a later date as well as subs. Is the head unit any good??

this will realistically do about 17-22rms but there great headunits

I'm pretty new to speaker-ology, so can you explain rms?

RMS stands for Root-Mean-Square. It is a method of measuring the average voltage value of alternating current from the source
in noob terms, RMS means what wattage you will actually see from the headunit/amp output and RMS on a sub means what it can safely take daily with out exceeding its mechanical limits.

Well I plan on getting an amp in the future, so I'm not sure if the rms really makes a difference?

Haha trust me I know. But since I'm getting an amp does the rms the HU puts out really matter?

not if your running a amp for your front/mid stage. just get a amp with the rms output at the right ohm for the speakers you get.

I currently have this exact deck in my wife's vehicle running both JBL Power and GTO coax in the doors and a sub off a seperate amp. Great deck with plently of features and great flexablity, good value there I say go for it....
