Hi there, I want to purchase a set of comps, the Boston S60, but got some questions on how to power them from my alpine 4 channel amp.

The comps are rated at 55 RMS and 150watts peak power.

My alpine amp does 75x4 @ 4ohms, or 200X2 @ 4ohms.

I dont have rear speakers, so should I give 75 watts rms to the comps or 200 rms to them?

I have a Dodge Ram QC, I also have a 12 Diamond Audio sub getting 600 rms, and Im afraid it overpower the comps if I do not bridge the 4 channel amp.

THX in advance

just set them 75rms each and set ur gains so they dont see more then 60rms. U'd be amazed at how speakers can get off a little amount of power.

That's a tough choice. How about going to a set of these instead

and using your amp bridged but with the gains set for 100-125w? I'm using the SL60s on about 125 watts x2 and they seem to love the power. SL60s are avail on e-bay for about $180 shipped.

If you stay with the S60s, I'd start with the 75 watts and just be careful with the volume knob.

Do you guys think the Boston s60 will sound better than the infinity reference 6"x9" 3 ways?

Im using stock 6cd changer HU from Infinity on my 06 Ram

Spend your money on a decent set of comps and bi-amp them.
