    Max power ratings are more or less meaningless, they can be ignored.

    RMS ratings are the ones that matter -- even then, low quality brands are not honest.

    Almost every head unit produces 12-20w rms per channel. Your pio is 14w.

    So there is (almost) no speaker that will be over powered by your head unit.

    Actually, power really isn't a consideration in your situation -- you don't have much of it, that's about all you need to know. 14w is enough to power any 4-6.5" speaker reasonably well, but isn't enough to power anything to its limit.

    With speakers, probably more so than any other audio component -- you get what you pay for.

    If you want a proper adequate answer, WE need to know the model number of ALL your equipment, the amount you have, and what you are expecting to do.

    There is no maximum wattage, but the minimum wattage is the wattage per channel. If the stereo can output up to 50 rms watts per channel the speakers should be chosen that can handle that much without distortion. Also, match the impedance, which is usually 4 ohms. If you get more powerful speakers, they may last longer, but they won't make the stereo more powerful. You also need to strongly consider frequency response Of the speakers. They should be able to reproduce efficiently, the whole range the stereo gives them. Treble is easy and requires less power than bass. So if the low end of the response is 40Hz or lower, expect a stronger sounding performance than with a speaker whose low end is 100Hz and that will sound tinny. That stereo actually outputs only 14 watts rms to 4 channels and about 22 rms watts to the sub output channel ( 2 ohm sub).

  • We don't know buddy, RMS wattage and peak power rating is different in every speaker. We can't see what you have without providing adequate information of your equipment. You only providing the model of your head unit.

    You simply wire it to the speakers. But I'd recommend using a 2 or a 4 channel amplifier to run the speakers.
