What is a good wattage for a stereo system?
If you like loud uncompressed music and your speakers are 90dB efficient, 200 Watts is likely plenty of power for you. If you only listen to light classical, jazz and don’t expect them to rock the house, 50 Watts is adequate. Higher efficiency speakers, like horns, take very few Watts.
Does head unit wattage matter?
Car audio systems do not have to produce massive amounts of amplifier wattage to sound booming. However, having excess power means there’s headroom so your system can deliver emotionally impactful bursts whenever the music asks for them. Just ensure that the speaker’s rating matches that of the amp.
