yea you would see 10w rms from a hu at most. likely less. if you dont plan to upgrade speakers etc then why not use stock hu? idk what year your car is but most newer cars have decent stock sound and likely steering wheel contols, voice controls, nav etc. could be costly for the install kits as well. if its old then i understand and wouldnt worry about what the output rating is. they are all about the same. like said just stick with the pioneer.
Because I like to listen to music on my phone in the car. But the stock hu is bad for that. You have to change songs on the phone. I don't want to do that because it's not safe

Yea it looks like a good amp. I'm not really sure yet. I guess I'll start with my new headunit and see after
None of those make their rated power. And you won't hear the difference between that power anyways. They'll all make around 10w or so. And for future reference, the CEA certifications are inapplicable and relatively worthless.
Have been reading many head unit reviews at avtozvuk.com. Per their methodology system, most head units they tested do produce 14-18watts RMS of power, at 1%THD (Voltage unspecified..). In any case, I wouldn't lose sleep over the difference between 14 and 20watts. Both are inadequate except for powering active tweeters, active small dome mid-range, or real fill.
