Q1: Factory speakers usually only require anywhere from 5 to 15 watts.Q2: a 20x4 CD player will work just fine. I would suggest a quality name brand radio with a little more power, I would also suggest that you change the speakers, the factory speakers are JUNK, If you change these out I'll GUARANTEE you that you'll notice a 100% difference in sound quality and you'll be able to turn it up a little louder for when you want to ROCK out a little.Also go to your local Best Buy/circuit city or stereo shop and see what they can offer you, you don't have to spend a lot of $$$ for some good sound qualityI hope this helps you make a decisionGOOD LUCK

The far and away simpliest answer is to use Crutchfield's automated web interface to see what fits your car. You did not mention if it is a coupe or a sedan, so I guessed at coupe since it was purchased far more often. If you click on the following link, it will take you to a page on what will fit a standard 98 Acura Integra coupe that they offer at Crutchfield (a bunch of brands). This will give you an idea on what you can put in your car and what will work: luck with it. I and friends have used Crutchfield in the past with excellent results (one time for me was to install rear speakers in my 94 Acura Integra - they worked well and sounded great.)

20X4 is very close to the factory wattage on those old panasonic units Acura used to use. That would be a better replacement then the 40X4
