Just ordered a pair of pioneer 6.5" Revs new for $150 shipped, went with these after the RSDs I had were either defective or I blew them.. How much power should I send them.. says 60w nominal 250w max music power? **Didn't really say before, these are the component speakers

50-75w rms should do great

u can run it off the HU..

but i suggest running them off an AMP..

50-75w rms x2 @ 4 ohms

The ratings on those are normally full range.

60 watts RMS full range.

With a crossover at 80hz or higher, I would not be afraid to go as high as 120 watts RMS.

With a lower crossover, you might be able to go somewhere in between... at 60hz, maybe 90 watts RMS.

You just have to be smart about it... if you hear distress, turn it down, lower the power and/or raise the crossover point.

so when they say 60watts nominal power thats the normal rms power handling of the speakers?

Not to thread jack, but would they be ok with 100w off a Orion 4002 crossed over at 100 to 120hz?

He is right...

somewhere between 60-100w should be great...but you need to have a strong signal initially...

What do you mean by strong signal?

A clean signal is likely a better term. Non distorted and non clipped.
