I have a amp that is a two channel and puts out 150 watts at 2 ohms. I had my eye on the CDT HD-62's but they are 4 ohms. What would be some other good choices for the speakers? thanks

Boston Acoustics, Image Dynamics, Focal, MB Quart, OZ Audio, DLS, Rainbow, Arc Audio, Alpine, Kicker
take a look at image dynamics components, they can be had in that price range, and some are 2ohm.
also A\D\S makes some 3ohm components, but ive never heard anyone with them - so i cant vouche for the quality... but id guess you would be gettin over 100rms per side @ 3ohm.

I'd look into the diamond audio hex series. Great speakers and can be had around $300.

or couldnt you just wire whatever speakers you want to get the impedance you need for your amp??? if you've got 2 4Ohm speakers i'm pretty sure you can easily make that a 2 Ohm load if you know how to wire speakers. its pretty easy stuff.

You donít want to run your speakers in Mono by bridging your amp or wiring them different! 75 watts should be enough for most component sets. Your choices are very limited in the 2 ohm range, Iíve looked too. Probably have better luck with a 4 ohm set in your power range and budget. Or you need a new amp. Get a 4 channel amp that you can bridge still in stereo. Also gives you lots of configuration options.
