Quick RMS question for Sony 5.25"
I'm looking at some Sony 5.25" 4-way speakers (not the Xplode versions (I know Sony's aren't the best, but I've had really good experiences with their speakers)). According to the Wal-Mart website, they're rated at 35 watts RMS. My amp does 55w x 4 @ 4 ohms, and my head unit has an output of 50w x 4. If I were to get these speakers, would they be ok being hooked to my head unit? Or better yet my amp? And does anyone know the difference between the regular Sony 4-ways and the Xplode 4-ways? I've got a set of older 6x9 4-way Xplodes that have been through hell and still sound fine.

The amp would be better. The headunit "50 X 4" is a MAX Rating, not RMS, So that means the Headunit is probably like 14-20 RMS. Just make sure you don't give them too much power.
