Looking for some good 2 way components suggestions.

I have this Power Acoustik TS960 amp:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Power-Acoustik-TS960-4-4-Channel-960W-Plasma-Amp-NEW-06_W0QQitemZ250083260235QQihZ015QQcategoryZ4950QQs sPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Specs say:
100 watts RMS x 4 at 4 ohms (125 watts RMS x 4 at 2 ohms)
250 watts RMS x 2 in bridged mode (4-ohm stable in bridged mode)
Variable high-pass/low-pass crossover (40-250 Hz, 18 dB/octave)
Variable bass boost (0-18 dB)
Speaker- and preamp-level inputs
Tri-way capable (Tri-Way Crossover required)
Preamp outputs
Fuse rating: 2 x 25A
Requires 8-gauge power and ground leads with a 60-amp fuse ý wiring and hardware not included with amplifier

I'll be bridging it to get to 250 x 2 @ 4 ohms.

What do you think the actual power output of this amp would be, bridged X 2 @ 4 ohms?

And what speakers would you guys suggest that are able to handle that power.
Ive been thinking about Rainbow SLC265's, Boston Pro60's DLS up6's, & CDT HD-62's

If it fits your budget....for about $170ish, get the Crystal SSCS6 comps. They'll love that kind of power.

250.00 sounds about right. Most of the speakers i mentioned in the original post are around that price and they all seem like good quality, i just dont know if they handle that kind of power. I'd rather not fry anything if possible.

I could go up to 325 - 350.00 if there is something out there thats gonna make me much happier than the 250.00 range i guess. But it has to be undoubtedly better.

thanks for the tip, im probably gonna order some of these in the next 2 days unless i find something better. hard to beat these for the price. I just wish i could find more detailed specs to make my decision easier

You sure that Power Acoustik 250x2 @ 4 ohms wont destroy the speakers??

Here's the spec sheet (http://www.crystalmobilesound.com/spec_sheetl.htm) from Crystal. Grossly misrepresented, from what I've read. Do a quick search in the speaker subforum for posts from Kicker06. ;)

Here's the thread (http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=183421) he started when he first got his set, and here's the one (http://www.caraudio.com/forum/showthread.php?t=191496) after the install.

Rainbow SLC

Another good recommendation. But I'd go with the SLC265 Kicks with a flexible budget, though.
