I am currently running my stock speakers off of my head unit. They can get pretty loud. I wouldnt recommend powering them with an amp. I would take a guess at 16 - 20 watts rms.

My '93 XE has stock (I think) Clarion's all the way around that handle 25W RMS - perfect to power from a deck, but I again wouldn't reccommend amping them.

i am not considering amping my stock speakers. rather, i just want to compare mine with my friend's car, which is a previous gen maxima. his rear speakers are stock, but when he turns it up, they vibrate my whole body, causing a total-body sensation to the music. the sound is not as clean as aftermarket speakers, but they are very decent for stock. compared to my stock rear ones, all mine do is hurt my ears when turned up high. no total-body sensation ;(. thats why i want to know the RMS of mine and the maxima's factory speakers.

edit: my HU puts 60x4 max watts, probably 25-30 RMS on my speakers. they sound adequate, but raspy at high volume, and when i fade all the sound to the front, it sounds horrible. when i fade to the back, its semi-decent. with no fade, its good music for factory speakers. but not nearly as good as my friend's maxima with stock speakers and stock HU.

trust me if he has bose he has a substantial power increase over the sentra. but i am seeing that the newer b14 has better factory speakers since mine took 8 and a 99 sel took 15. nissan does have ok factory speakers. my factory system actually to some extent outperformed my fathers system in his S10 which consisted of a jvc cd player pioneer 4x10's and 4x6 plates. his was louder but mine had better sounding bass. my factory actually did make me feel vibrations in my pants legs and did cause some rattling when listening to it from the outside when i had a cd walkman with the bass boost on even though the rattling is probally because of piss poor factory sounddeading from the factory and that bass boost did blow my speakers.
