New door/ rear speaker help

Picked up some jbl 6x9s for my doors an 5-1/4 for the rear the 6x9 are rated at 100w rms an 300 peak the 5-1/4 are 45rms an 135 peak. My question is do I need an amp for these?

You could run them straight to the head unit but running an amp will get you louder and better sound. I would run an amp that matches the rms.

How big of an amp would I run? I have a 10" kicker sub with I believe an 400 watt amp already in the truck. Been in there for years now just figured I would compliment it

300 watt small amp should do you good. Don't want to run more than RMs for longevity and clarity. Yes you could go bigger but no real need you just want daily clarity right not sound comp stuff?
