should i upgrade?

So I'm thinking of upgrading my system, and wanted your opinions and was wondering how much louder you really think it will be.

Right now I have Infinity Kappa Speakers (RMS 2-100) running on 50W at 2 ohms from an alpine amp. I also have an alpine type R sub (200-500 RMS, max 1500) running on 400W at 2 ohms from an alpine amp. The sub is in a 1.1 sq ft sealed enclosure.

Now im thinking about upgrading the speakers amp to 100w RMS, and upgrading my sub amp. What is a good wattage for an alpine type R, because i know it can handle more than 500 RMS.

Thanks for your help, also if anyone is interested in my current amps let me know cuz they are in great condition and i will probably be selling them soon.

if your infinity speakers are coaxials, they really don't even need to be amped. if you are going to upgrade them, i would definitely get components. the type r is a good sub. if you like how it sounds, just add on a second one. otherwise, start checking craigslist, and you can probably find something else for a pretty good price
