Aftermarket CD player+OEM speakers

By looking behind the speakers on the rear parcal shelf, they have a "15W" which I assume means they handle 15watts of continuous power with 20watts being peak (20w X 4speakers per window sticker specs)

My OEM HU pooped out so I can only play the radio now. I'm looking at a nice decent priced aftermarket HU with about 180-200watts of peak power (45-50watts per speaker) but I'm not sure what the ratings are for continuous power. I'm just wondering if the OEM speakers can handle these power levels reliability for a short-term?

i had 45x4 hu installed with stock OEM speakers at first... The sound wise, it improved ALOT compared to stock HU.. Just lower your bass and you'll be fine.. Mine lasted me like 2 years until i got better speakers because my Sub bass were overtaking the stock fronts. Don't expect your OEM speakers hit those high notes to give you the goosebumps but better HU will def make your stock speakers sound much better.

the highest RMS aftermarket decks are only 22 watts.... (or so)

so you are fine...like dude said unless your really cranking it your fine, plus SQ should improve, but thats your weakest link till you upgrade the speakers....
