    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

    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.
