Doesn't matter what the answer is, but if you get a decent set of components and you have a good sub, you can probably get away without running upgraded rear speakers. At the moment, I'm without rear speakers in the Monte Carlo because the rear channels of my amp blew out and I don't have money for a new one right now. It's passable, but I don't have components...
Protip: If you don't know what you're doing, don't do it.
Be sure to deaden the doors too, this involves removing the door panel, deadening the inside of the door, then covering as many large openings in the door as you can with sheet metal, then deadening over that. It took me about a day to do both my front doors, but the result was much stronger mid-bass and less rattling. I was using the Pioneer speakers at the time with about 150w RMS per door, and yes they do fit.
As far as amps any I would stick with a good brand around 50-75w per channel is all you need. After all bridging it would give you about 150 per door.
You will have about 1300w total RMS power, needing a HO alt will depend on your listening habits. If you are one to constantly blast at full volume, you may get dimming and require a HO alt. I would just install the new amp it and see, if you get a ton of dimming, then an alt will be a good idea, but IMO, you should be fine with just doing the big 3.
I was actually point you to that same Kicker amp, but you can probably find it cheaper somewhere else..
im looking into getting that kicker amp, but i know (i think) i need a distribution block. This being said, using the 0ga wire that is already connected to my current amp, could i just disconnect the wire from the amp and put it into the distribution block? Then from the block add more 0ga wire to connect to the amp?
here is the thread to my setup for pictures of the wiring if it helps any.
