Well I've been around 1000lb(not watts) audio systems all my life, your 6.5 and 6x9s will be your most important part of your audio system, that's what you should focus on first. 6x9s should be 4 way or better. If you want a lot of bump in your trunk then you'll have to give more power to your interior speakers. My personal preference is one sub and a 300 watt amp. Thats more than enough to impair your hearing.(which I think everyone takes for granted). Current factory receivers are adequate, just replace the speakers, but older cars(all cars really) will benefit from an aftermarket receivers. Thats just MY opinion though. Visit crutchfield.com for more info.

Audiophiles lose their hearing. :lol:

That sony sub is more efficient than the pioneer. That amp is designed to operate 4 speakers. How many subs do you intend to run?

The AMP you are looking at is intended to be used for your smaller speakers in the car.  It will run the SUBs but no where near what is needed to blow the SUBs.

When putting in SUBs, first figure out which SUBs you want and then decide on an AMP.  You can do it the other way, but then you are cornered into what how the AMP performs unless you decide to run more than one AMP.

That's my $0.02.

To run 2 800W you could use a 1600W amp
Or you could use 2 (bridged) 800W amps

Or you could use 1 smaller amp than 1600W.  The reason why is that these are ratings of their Max. output, not the requirement. You could also go higher than the 1600W, but you would have to turn the Amps output down.  But it is a good rule of thumb not to surpass the max. rating.

I'm gonna double post 'cause I haven't finished reading, but I'd like to point out the rears are technically 6x8's not 6x9's.

I know in your other post you said that you didn't want to buy and aftermarket head unit, but I would recommend one if you're going to buy a sub.

1)  It'll make the install of the amp easier

2)  It'll provide more power to the other speakers (which can handle the extra power no prob, I still have the stock fronts in and they sound pretty freakin' good)

That's my opinion.  Plus many of them aren't going to be very expensive for an MP3 capable and what not.
