Run a set in the GF's car off a Profile amp. Decent comp set for what I paid for them...

ran a kicker 550.2, they took the power fine, but I had to cross them pretty high to crank on them :(

they are great comps and can handle a pretty good amount of power. I was running 170 watts per side when I had mine.

i've got an alpine f545 wired to them http://www.onlinecarstereo.com/CarAudio/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=14929

only running 4ch. stereo, non-bridged... never tried bridging the mids.. gonna have to try that, but same as duece said... had to cross them at 100-125hz... midbass is lacking, but they do get pretty loud

I have no dealing with the Pro 60's but i have 2 sets of the SPZ50s in my SUV ran off of a Zapco ref1000.4 and although loud they struggle keeping up with my 18" FI BTL ran off of a SAZ 3000d. I thought the Zapco would be enough but it doesn't seem so as i've heard these are very power hungry. My previous MB Quart QSD 216 seem to be louder ran off of an Eclipse 800.4 amp?????????

I have Pro 60's in the rear running off an Arc Audio 4100 bridged. It's 185 per channel, plus the speakers are 3 ohms, adding about 25%. They handle it easily, but they lack a little mid bass.

i use to run them...but when i switched to DD's...the DD's had better mid bass and cleaner highs...

I ran a set of Pro 60s (blue cone) active for a couple of years with 225w to each mid and about 50w each to the tweets. They played LOUD and sounded great. At reasonable volumes, I could set the crossover as low as 63hz and get good midbass out of them, but at high volumes, I would usually do 80hz and up.

Then a few months ago I upgraded my amps, giving the mids 300 each and the tweets about 80 or so. It wasn't long before I fried one of the mids.

Sometimes I listen to my stuff retarded loud.

That should give you an idea of the power handling. I was impressed with them for a long time. I recently replaced them with JL ZRs, but my truck is still in pieces right now, so I haven't been able to listen to them in there yet to offer a comparison.
