You need to look at the RMS or continuous power rating of your products, then match an amp to the power ratings of the speakers or a little bit higher.

A head unit is rated at 50Wmax * 4 which is in reality, about 17-22Wrms * 4.

So find out your speaker's proper power rating and get back to us.

If you could tell us the model numbers, it would help. Even by going to the speaker brand websites and seeing which ones they look like.

The Jensens are rated at 60Wrms and the Fusion are rated at 55Wrms, so 60Wrms * 4 would be sufficient but you could go up to 75/80/100 just to ensure you don't overdrive the amp.
