here you go;



Now as to how much power, thats really up to you!
I wanted to keep it simply and basic. as in I wanted the speakers to run clean off the Head unit. For me it was matching the RMS power from the head unit to the RMS of the speakers, in my case 25watts. that and I wanted to have at least 4volt preamps so i could upgrade in the future if so needed. I am running Pioneer speakers, and head unit. with a single 300watt amp for a 12" in the trunk.

SO you need to figure out what you want to do with your system.
also checkout Sonic Electronix.
