you wont have to worry about the amp unless you want a aftermark one in there. the wiring will not be a problem at all, its alot like hooking up regular speaker cable.

If you want to power them with the factory amp, go for some lower-level components that have lower power ratings to squeeze the most out of them.

for example infinity reference series?

Um, how are bostons not good? Pro's are some of the best mid priced comps out there. IMHO better than JL's, alpines or infinity. I haven't heard DD or RE, but I would get another set of Pros in a heartbeat.

I would deffinitly recommend bostons over infinity anyday. Give them a little power and they will sound great. My pros took 100rms all the way up to 220 rms when I bridged the amp like a champ.

I suggest get something good and powerful enough so when you are ready to add a different amp, the speakers are already good.
