Seems like my Boston Pro's have finally given out, after 6 years and 300 watts each side. Now I'm looking for something to replace them. I've been thinkinng about going with the new Boston Pro's, but the shop I always go to have been pushing the Zapco's to me. I can get either set for 500 even so price is not the factor between the two. The Zapco's don't sound as bright to me, but no doubt that they play loud. But I'm leaning towards the Pro's.

I want something that can keep up with 1100 watts to 2 12w6v2's stay bright but give a solid mid range punch. The shop I go to also carries Pheonix Gold, JL & Alpine and I'm wondering if there's anything else that I should grab a second look at. My price range is around 500 a set, and would have to be something I can find locally. Any ideas and input are welcome.

Also I'm wondering about bi-amping what ever components I get. I'm used to 300 watts a side so, is it a feasible idea? Any suggestions on anything would be appreciated. Mahalo in advance!

Looks good. Thought about the Z's but they didn't have a pair to listen to on display. I think that they're asking 800 down here for those in 6.5's. If they sold them for 475 or even 550 for he 6.5's down here I'd have them in a second. Never gonna find anything cheap like that in Hawai'i. Kinda disheartenng to know how cheap I could get them for online.
