Kicker zx550.2 for $240 from millionbuy (http://www.millionbuy.com/kikzx5502.html) would be a good choice. It's rated for 205wrms x 2 @ 4 ohms, but will probably do more.

I plan on using my PG ti600.2 on mine. 150x2.


I assume the more power you feed these, the higher you should set your crossover point? Or leave it at 80hz hp, regardless?

I had a set of CMX's (non Kick version) that I was running bridged at 210w a side, and they sounded great. I just made sure to be really careful with setting the gain pretty low on them, but they took the power fine. On 150w a side, you should be able to keep them hp'd at 80hz without any issues. The difference will be in how the gain is set.

they won't play frequencies lower than 80Hz. If you plan on running them with the passive x over give them a 150x2 @ 4Ohm at least. the passive x over takes away about 15% of the power, if i'm not mistaken.
