Default Need help w/replacing stock stereo

I have a 1500 Express Crew Cab with the standard stock Alpine stereo (no GPS, DVD, Touchscreen etc). I am not planning on replacing my stock speakers yet but I was wondering if anybody knows the wattage the stock head unit puts out so I blow my speakers?

Thank You

I think the current RES decks are made by Siemens, not Alpine. And the rating is reportedly 28Wx4

Thanks, I assumed that they were made by Alpine because a search find out what fits your vehicle on Crutchfield they ask if you have the factory Alpine or not?

Express packages do not have the Alpine upgrade, your base speakers like mine. I upgraded just by adding Kicker KS in doors, HUGE improvement, even with factory radio.

Dam base models! Still can't complain with what Dodge gives you in their base packages compared to Ford or GM...

Dunno why you want to replace the sterio... start with the speakers first. I recommend JL Audio speakers as each one puts out great bass. If after doing that you don't like it - then change the deck. I have the same 8or9 speaker sterio which is ok.. but the speakers hold it back in my opinion
