Really the general answer is rear speakers are not needed or called "rear fill" and are generally first to cut. Second the amps I liked from sub $200 range do the job just fine for running front speakers, rear speaker, and sub. Unless you want alot of power but then you need a nice mono block and separate amp for speakers, and at that point caps to regulate power.

Rear Fill..
No sounds stage for rear passengers??? - DIYMA Car Audio Forum

edit..
only good reason I think of for getting an expense Amp is you can generally pull an AMP out of a car, were the deck or the speakers I generally leave in space. To much of a pain to remove.
