Hi, I have a 2003 cavalier 2dr and i was wondering what amp i should get for these pioneer speakers.
2x TS-A4670R <--------for the front
4"x6" 3-Way Speaker
120 Watts Max. Power
Watts Nominal Power Handling 20W

2x TS-D690R<------- for the rear
6" x 9" REV-series 2-Way Speaker
Watts MAX. Music Power 330W
Watts Nominal Power Handling 80W

Im not really sure what amp i need in order to get the best quality from my speakers. Also if i decide to get subwoofers in the future would i need to buy another amp for them? Any suggesstions would also help...right now im not sure if this setup is good...i was aslo thinking of having 2x -2way speakers in the back and 1 subwoofer and not replace the front at all or should i install everything? Also recommend me what amp i should get for those speakers.
My budget right now is around $1000

Hmm, well the front speakers I'm sorry to say aren't that good. I don't know why car manufacturers decide to put such a size of speaker in the front. Max power means nothing in this world, but what you need to look at are the Nominal Power or RMS rating on speakers. Now the ones in the front have a 20watts RMS rating which means your deck will outpower them.

What I usually tell people to do is if they want a better sound than stock, but at the same time not spend a fortune, just get speakers that can handle about 50-60 watts RMS and an amp that puts out 50 watts RMS per channel x 4 channels.

For example for your car you can get any 50 watt RMS per channel x 4 channel amp. Then put Infinity KAPPA 462.5CFP plate speakers (4x6) in the front doors. These speakers have a 60 watt RMS capability. You could leave the pioneer rears because they are higher than 50-60 watts RMS.

This will sound better than what you have now but keep asking maybe someone with more experience will correct me! I didn't mean to pick on your front speakers but if you keep those you are very limited in your options!

hes 100% right IMO. those front speakers arent the best in the world but they will work off of your deck.(and sound better than stock) and you could just buy a small 2 ch. amp for your rears. but if i were you id look into the cheaper sets of MB Quart. but thats just my opinion.
