    50rms per side though is quite little for any set of speakers in that price range. I'd say look to some Alpine Type R comps or CDT EF-61s

    My Pro60's blow me away daily. Nobody could ever need more from a stereo system, and I have only 150 watts per channel.

    Diamond hex, PPI DCX, Oz Matrix (the OZ's might go over your budget. The DCX might be less than budget... if you can find them, they are discontinued).

    I am powering them nowdays with a PRS-X320, so about 150 per channel, yea they sound good...

    Before I was using a PRS-X720, 400+ watts per side. LOUDER THAN ****!!!!!

    But a little too much power for perfectly accurate reproduction, so hence the smaller amp

    They almost loved 400 watts. With 300 I think they would dominate.

    So how do you like the PRS amps?? I have 2 - 720s, 2 - 320s and 2 - 340s. One 720 and one 320 are waiting on deck at the moment. I love those amps.

    But my highest rated birth sheet for my 720s is 244 rms @ 4 ohms. Do your 60s run at 2 ohms or something.??

    I like my Boston Pro 60s, and if you can get them brand new for $300, go for it.

    I thought I got a good deal at $350. Oh well.

    I had heard that the Boston tweeters are much nicer on the ears than MB Quart's tweeters, is this true??
