Default Getting new Door Speakers

Alright, i had the pioneer speakers from walmart in my truck for about a year and loved them. Well i put my amp up to them and about two months later one blew. The amp i have is just a pioneer, i think its like 400 watts max (i know it's little.)
My new door speakers i am ordering are 130W RMS each. What size amp should i get? I don't want to blow anymore lol their expensive.

Haha, I have those same speakers in my truck now, and they've been blown to shit for a few months now. Same with me, they sounded good on the head unit, but I got an amp on them and they died.

Hmm, I'd look for a 200 or a 150 rms watt two channel amp if you're just doing those 2 speakers. Look for a 100w x 2 or a 75w x 2. You might be able to go up a bit more since they're 130RMS, but that gets risky.

I have a CRUNCH amp, and it's decent. Mines a 4 channel and I remember it being cheap. But if you're going with a 2 channel, then you have an opportunity to still keep it affordable and go with a good brand.
