Hi, I'm pretty new to car audio so if someone could explain this in a relatively easy way to understand, I would greatly appreciate it. :)
I have 2 rear 6x9 speakers, powered at 350watts peak and 125watts RMS
What would be a proper amp to power them?
Thanks for the help!

How much do you want to spend? High quality or swap-o-rama special?
It all reminds me of something that Molière once said to Guy de Maupassant at a café in Vienna: "That's nice. You should write it down."

I guess I had a bit of a brain fart last night when I posted that.
The speakers in this vehicle are actually:
Pioneer TS-695P 230 watts max and 30 watts RMS for each speaker.
I'm hoping to spend around $200 with a wiring kit included, if possible.
If you have any better ideas or options, feel free to let me know. I'm also not completely opposed to upgrading the speakers either, they had just come with the car. Of course if that's the case, I'd be willing to spend more.

We need more information, What type of vehicle is it? Are you running 2 or 4 speakers? Are you looking to upgrade later?
Honestly if you are new to this I would recommend going to a local Audio shop to see what they suggest. They should be the experts and should know all of the in's and out's of your vehicle so that there are no issues. That being said, if you are set on doing this yourself then supply the answers to the above questions and we can see what we can do.
