Default Adding amp to 2011 wrx

For adding an amp to the 2011 wrx, I see that a popular option is the Alpine power pack KTP-445U. I was originally looking at doing a new head unit, but the headaches of trying to retain your bluetooth, steering wheel controls, USB under the arm rest seem like a real pain. My question is for adding an amp, if I do not go the power pack route, what size of amp would be safe to run without worrying about blowing up the factory speakers. For 2011 it sounds like the factory speakers are a nice woven kevlar with oversized magnets and could probably take a good beating before they blew. Would something like 300watts or lower be a good option?

25-60w rms per channel should be fine.
