I have found some really good deal on the amp. They are all rated above 50w RMS per channel. Will the stock speaker able to take this kind of power? or as long as I do not turn up the volume too much, they should be ok?

By the way, anyone has experience with CRUNCH amps? I am not looking for some competition grade amp, but one that gives clearer music than the stock amp.

Thanks!

i would change the speakers before the amp. the stock speakers have so much distortion at moderate sound levels.

Dont rush of and get new speakers yet. The stock speakers will be fine. They will handle the power of that amp better than they do off the factory amp. By adding the amp you lower you distrotion and will almost double your output. The more power the better. By having more power you wont have to turn the amp up as much and you distortion level will be much lower. The factory speakers will also sound twice as good with a good quality amp than they do off the factory setup. Hook up the amp and see what you think. If you dont like the sound then would be the time to upgrade.

EXACTLY!! I would definitly upgrade the speakers. I would not suggest anything else other than upgrading to a decnet component set, which can still be run from the stock HU, but when the time comes to amplify them, your sound quality will be amazing. Even with that crunch amp, a high quality component set will really sound great

You are more likely to ruin a aftermarket set of speakers run off you factory radio than you are amping the factory speakers. One thing to keep in mind is aftermarket speakers are typically not as efficient as the factorys so in turn they may sound better at lower volumes but distort quicker than the factorys did. Any speaker will sound about twice as good with good amp and the more power the better they will sound. The amp lowers the distortion. Power isn't what blows speakers, distortion is and by amping the distortion floor will drop down quite a bit in turn playing louder and cleaner. You can run the factory speakers off a 50 watt amp all day and not have a problem even when your realy cranking them. Its your money so do what you want.

My front stock speakers are completely shredded from my PC250 amp... which isnt even big, the whole surround is seperated almost and they make a "fap fap" sound now... They suck, time for new speakers :D
