How do you choose an amplifier for your car’s speakers?

I’m in the process of upgrading my car’s sound system and am on the verge of buying a new amplifier. What’s the best way to choose an amplifier?

I have a couple of friends who have done a sound system update; it’s well worth it!
Getting the right amplifier is pretty simple if you have your speakers already. To avoid any issues, simply make sure your amplifier has a top RMS (root mean square) output no higher than each speaker’s maximum RMS rating.
RMS refers to how much power your speakers can handle over a long time. It’s different from your speakers’ maximum power levels, which refers to the absolute maximum power your speakers can output in small bursts. Finding an amplifier with a matching RMS helps you avoid blowing out your speakers.
When you finish upgrading your speakers, be sure to talk with your current insurance company to ensure your new sound system is covered. Many insurance companies specifically offer sound system coverage to ensure your new beats are protected.
