HU has its own built in amp which is to power the front and rear speakers....

Keep ya front speakers plugged in, and if you have rear speakers unplug them if your planning on getting 6x9's

The amp which you'll put in the boot will power other things like 6x9's and Subs..
Just make sure that your HU has the RCA things in the back so you can use the HU and amp together to send the signal to the amp.

that amp will be acceptable for a pair of replacement rear speakers,or a cheap sub.

I recommend u look into the best set of 10cm components or coaxials you can find,and run them off that shark amp. That will improve rear sounds tenfold,aswell as fitting some replacement front speakers (really recommend components) and change the speaker wire for actually phono cable not normal leccy cable like fiat fitted (run em off head unit built in amp) and you'll have quality sound in ur car for little cash

Add a sub if u want to REALLY FEEL the bass (but in doing so adding the weight of a small child in ur boot 24/7)

it could cost as little as 100 quid for a system better than the fiat piss,or as much as u can afford for a system that will sound like somethin out of an audio-visual show stand.

Its a piece of piss to fit stuff like this and can take several hours to do properly,so its a fair bit of labour time but it IS possible to fit urself to a good standard,try and get a mate whos done it before to help u if u dont know what your'e looking for,but once u've seen one speaker removed and fitted u've seen em all (kind of)

Theres cheap then theres cheap mate. The following statement is my opinion and u can ignore it if u want

Those speakers are a waste of time and amplifying them is just pissing money down the drain. For the cost of that set-up u could get a better set-up without using an amp. TBH u'd be best getting a better set of speakers and just running them off the head unit,as the head unit amp can happily power speakers as cheap as those,or similarly cheap ones. I ran 6.5" type S co-axials off a 45x4 head unit and it took em more than loud enough without distortion

Spend a few quid more to get better quality IMO

Any reason why u chose that particular head unit?
