    I just got new 6X9s and 6 1/2s in my car. The stereo is stock and puts 10 watts by 4 channels. The speakers are way unser powered. So should I first buy a 4 way amp or buy a stereo and then an amp?

    Def. new deck first. It won't make it much louder, but it can improve sound clarity immensely, negating part of the need for extra volume.

    Outside of that, you can also invest in some sound dampening. Sometimes reducing competing noise is better than increasing the volume on what you DO want to hear.
