I have a question i have the P8004 and im not sure what speakers should i connect to my amp.
Right now i have these 2 speakers.

Infinity Kappa 462.5cfp 2-Way Speaker--front
Recommended RMS Power: 60W
Peak Power Handling: 180W
Impedance: 4 ohms

Infinity Kappa 693.5i ---rear
Recommended RMS Power: 110W
Peak Power Handling: 330W
Impedance: 4 ohms

Should i power the Kappa 462.5cfp with my pioneer headset which gives out 25 watts to 50 or should i connect it with my amp? The rockford amp gives out 100watts @ 4Ohm so im not sure if i should connect it with the 462.5cfp. Im afraid that it will make my speakers blow or something to that efffect. Not really sure how amps work but it has a front and rear internal Crossovers so what do you guys think i should do?

Power the front and rear with the external amp. HU's power is deceiving. It'll sound 2x better anyways compared to HU.
As for too much power, a speaker will handle a little surge of clean power. When you are reaching the breaking point, you will hear crackling noises. That's a good sign to lower the volume.
If you have the room near the front, double up on your speakers so that instead of 60W, you'll get 120W. I did that with my car. It now has more punch.
