Car Audio Q's

Hey, I'm new here and I have a few questions about my cars speakers and such to ask. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

First, I just bought some new speakers 6x9 rear, 6x8 front door. They are decent speakers, the rears are 350 watts, and the fronts are 240. My deck is a piece of shit, so I think I will have to rely on amplifiers to power the speakers. What kind of amp would I need to get the most out of the speakers, and any advice as to where I should buy it. I can install it, so I am fine with ordering it off the web.

Thanks.

Idea: introduce yourself. in these parts its considered rude to just come in and ask a question without a proper introduction

Too bad you are talking about amplifiers, because that is the one area I don't know much about when it comes to speakers.

I would recommend to the nearest store where they sell amplifiers, and they will usually let you hook up different amplifiers to the same speakers, so you can test each one.

how much cash you got to spend?
how much bass do you want?
