I've just bought a Sony CDX-S2000 CD Tuner, with the intention of installing it in the kitchen and wiring up two speakers in my bathroom to front, and two in kitchen to rear (or something like that).
I've come to actually choosing the speakers, and I'm slightly flummoxed.. I was thinking of something like this: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3089876282&category=15263 or this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2472785346&category=15271 but now I've heard of underpowering, and all sorts of other arcane music tech malarkey.. can anyone help out here???
AM/FM RDS Tuner
Wired remote control input
4 x 50W Amplifier
1 RCA pre-out
100dB+ Signal to noise ratio
Detachable face plate
DIN sized unit
and I've seen some speakers that are this:
6 1/2" WATERPROOF SPEAKERS (80W)
6 1/2" polymica cones in precision moulded frames.
Sold as a pair.
10 oz magnet.
80 W RMS (EIA) power handling, 160W max.
4 Ohms impedence.
1" mylar domes.
Plastic magnet covers.
All plastic parts are high temp ABS -20 degrees to +105 degrees centigrade.
400 Hr UV stable plastic.

Ideal for the garden, spa, hot tub, sauna, pool area, boats, caravans, motorhomes or any outdoor application.
Is 80w too much for the amp? they are 4 ohms though, which is good for car stereos, yesno??
Output Power (DIN 45324, 4 ohm) 4x 26W
Max. Output Power (1kHz, 4 ohm) 4x 50W

You should worry about the power supply you are going to use for the car stereo. 13.8 volts with about 25 ampere or higher rating.
