Wanting to upgrade Stereo system...

So my speakers suck. I want to change my speakers, and possibly add an amp to do a sub later. I don't need anything to nuts, but I do listen to Heavy Metal music, and loud at times. I want something that I can control the EQ on.

I've never done a speaker upgrade in a car, so I don't know how you calculate the amp wattage to the speaker wattage.

I've read up on how to change speakers, and where to get the brackets but I can't find the wattage info, or how they all hook up. If anyone could explain, that'd be cool!

Thanks

I'm a noob at this.

Those look good. Only suggestion would be to upgrade with new adapter brackets to the 5 1/4's up front. The amp is nice and small and it would work but you might get more ooomph if you upgraded to a 4 channel with a little higher RMS to match all 4 interior speaker RMS's.

Speakers come with the brackets, and I read about doing the 5.25" and the $20 bracket, which I might do.

Whats the calculation so I can figure out the RMS? Those speakers are 2X25W = 50 and 2x35 = 70 so thats 120W, would that mean I'd need 120W or more?
