    Hi i am wanting to wire a 4 channel amp up to my door speakers. I was wondering if i could wire the amp up to my factory door speakers???(i believe there factory but idk) i just want to be able to turn it up louder and it to still be a crisp sound. i was thinking about getting a alpine 4-channel amp. Plus im also going to buy a headunit. i have a used small kicker mono amp. could that work?

    The Kicker amp would not work. Mono Amps are designed for Subwoofers. They wont produce the same sound. It would be better to upgrade the door speakers when you amplify them. Factory speakers are rated at a lot lower RMS wattage then the aftermarkets.

    But your factory speakers might sound a bit better with a aftermarket radio with a built in Crossover.. But an amp giving 35-75 watts RMS added to the new speakers will sound better..

    I amplified my stock door speakers until i could get the components put in....they actually sounded really good and I almost didnt change em out....I put 50 watts to them..thats about as brave as i got with them!

    So for a temporary measure it should be fine.
