I'm thinking about picking up a set of pioneer TS-D1720C for the wife's minivan.
How much power will really make these sound nice without too much worry about speaker life.

I'd also like to know the same thing for my ppi 365s. I want to upgrade the amp running those and want to choose the right one. I'm currently only running them on 75rms.

Thanks for any advice

well the ppi's are being ran correctly, you dont want to give them anymore power, there just not an effecient speaker as they dont get loud as others but sound great.

as for the pioneers, id much rather put some

I'm surprised you say that about the PPIs. Many people say you should give them much more. I just don't know what would be ideal powere for them.
I think I've even read people running over 200 to them.

Thanks
