Default 4x alpine SPS-600 , 2way speakers ... amp??

After doing some quick research around here I haven't really found much for a direct answer ... add to that the fact that i'm very much a beginner and what it equals is this post here

I'm looking to pair a 4 channel amp with these speakers here that were installed by the original owner of the car ( 97 maxima gxe )

Alpine SPS-600 Full Range Car Speakers - Car Speakers at Onlinecarstereo.com

... I've never run an amp to component speakers before ... only to subs ... So with my beginners knowledge I thought maybe this amp would do good enough ???

SoundStorm EV4.400 4 Channel Amplifiers - Car Amplifiers at Onlinecarstereo.com

Right now i've got a 15" IB dayton Sub mounted on an IB baffle going into the trunk.

And at this point i'm pretty sure ( but still to open to suggestions ) that i'm going to pair it all with this Kenwood deck here:

Kenwood Excelon KDC-X494 Car MP3 CD Players - In-Dash Receivers at Onlinecarstereo.com

Thoughts , comments, suggestions ??

hahaha ... It appears my questions are too elite for you mere mortals!!!

bahahaha ... ... ...

But seriously though ...

i'm just a beginner ...

any recommendations and / or explanations help ...

my apologies if i'm wasting your time ... I understand this place is dedicated much more to the technical / engineering end of car stereo but I only post here because once upon a time I was given lots of help over a period of a few weeks from multiple users here on my amateur system set-up

... I ended up grabbing a Rockford 400a4 power punch amp for these.

Also I ending up keeping my Clarion deck because it has active crossovers and a USB for an iPOD.

Holy crap that is more than enough power for those alpines, it should sound very nice. Sorry no one replied in time to help you decide.
Don't worry... you can always turn the gain down!

I agree, the Rockford will be like night and day difference compared to the Soundstorm. You will enjoy this setup.
